With offices in San Diego and Reno, The Drakulich Firm, A Professional Law Corporation, provides quality advice and representation for clients in real estate and construction defects litigation.

In the process of buying, selling or developing commercial or residential property, there is a broad range of issues that can arise and have the potential to turn into disputes or even full-fledged litigation. At The Drakulich Firm, we have significant experience in handling construction defects litigation and a range of other types of real estate related litigation including partnership and joint venture disputes.

Construction defects

Individuals and businesses that purchase relatively new buildings sometimes discover problems with the construction that result in dangerous conditions on the property. Any condition on the property that does not meet regulatory code may be considered a construction defect. Litigation can arise for any number of reasons, such as problems with plumbing, insulation, ventilation, foundation or roofing.

Real estate litigation

Real estate disputes can arise in a variety of areas. A common subject of litigation is the failure to disclose defects prior to sale. Disputes commonly arise when a seller intentionally or unintentionally fails to inform a buyer about defects in the property that is changing hands. For example, new owners often seek compensation after discovering mold that developed as a result of a leaky roof, a damp basement, or a flooding dishwasher. 
Another common area of real estate litigation involves property line disputes or title insurance issues. Property disputes or title issues also arise in large sales of land, such as farmland or land for commercial development. In some cases litigation may be necessary to resolve the dispute.

Seek Experienced Legal Counsel

If you are involved in a dispute over real property or a construction defect, seek advice from a knowledgeable attorney with experience in handling real estate litigation.

Drakulich has over thirty years of experience practicing law and an extensive background in litigation from both the defense and plaintiff standpoint.
