Skillful resolution of real property disputes in the Fresno area
Gates Law Group provides legal representation for a wide range of real estate issues, including:
- Boundary disputes — Property owners often make costly mistakes by relying on faulty surveys, inaccurate landmarks, or vague understandings of where their property ends and their neighbor’s begins. If a substantial improvement made to one parcel crosses the property line, how should the conflict be resolved? Depending on the facts, a court could rule any number of ways: ordering the encroaching owner to “tear the improvement down” or pay damages to the other owner, or enforcing the formerly agreed-upon boundary. We alert the court to all pertinent facts necessary to protect your rights.
- Easement rights — Egress and ingress are important aspects of any property’s value. Without easements, many businesses would not be able to move goods or invite customers onto their premises, and homeowners could be cut off from necessary amenities. However, the owner of a strip of land used as an easement also has rights. When a dispute over easement use arises, a party needs a skilled and experienced real estate attorney to find a solution.
- Landlord-tenant matters — Our firm assists commercial and residential landlords and tenants in various lease disputes. Whether you’re seeking to compel a landlord to make necessary repairs or enforce lease terms against problem tenants, we know the law and the often complex procedure to follow in landlord-tenant disputes. We also provide eviction representation for either side.
- Eminent domain and reverse condemnation — The Constitution of the United States guarantees protections for property owners against government takings. If the government has targeted your property for condemnation, we can challenge the purpose of the taking and fight for the full value of your property. If government action has negatively impacted the value of your property, we can pursue damages in an action for reverse condemnation.
- Zoning, land use, and permitting disputes — We represent business owners whose property rights are restricted due to conflicts with local, state and federal authorities. We provide representation at agency hearings and in state and federal court.
For these issues and many others, you can rely on our firm to provide knowledgeable counsel and determined representation from the beginning of your conflict to its favorable conclusion.
