Due diligence and real estate investing in Nevada

Not all buyers of real estate are in it to find a new home or find a location for a business. Some are in it for investing purposes. Over the last decade or so most people have probably seen television shows about "flippers," people who buy old houses and buildings to renovate them and put them back on the market to try to turn a profit. Real estate can be a lucrative area for investment, but there are always legal concerns in any real estate transaction, no matter the motive for the purchase.

The financial impact of a real estate dispute

Most people in Nevada who are involved in any type of real estate transaction usually hope that it goes smoothly. Unfortunately, the reality is that any time real estate changes hands, there is the potential for something to go wrong. Different factual scenarios in any given case can lead to disputes that may leave the parties facing off in a courtroom. The financial impact of such a situation can leave both parties worse off.

Disputes about purchase agreements focus on the details

In almost any real estate transaction, the primary document that is the focus of all parties involved is the purchase agreement. When this agreement is signed, many of the varying aspects of the transaction are locked into place. As a result, any disputes about purchase agreements can be conflicts that are heavily focused on the details of the document - the wording and phrasing that will, in all likelihood, ultimately resolve the dispute.

Could you find yourself in a dispute over property insurance?

The most popular refrain about why any type of insurance is necessary is simple: peace of mind. This is true whether it is health insurance, life insurance or, for those who own real estate, property insurance. However, as anyone who has ever had to make any type of insurance claim knows, insurance policies can be quite complex, leaving people wondering what type of incidents are covered by their insurance. Could Nevada residents find themselves in a dispute over their property insurance policy?

Protecting your real estate rights in Nevada

Details are the crucial underpinning of any legal transaction but are most important in real estate transactions. Whether you are buying or selling real estate, the details in the negotiations and the resulting legal documents involved provide direction for not only the parties involved in the transaction, but all others who have an interest in the fact that the ownership of real estate is changing hands.

Could issues with your property boundaries lead to litigation?

Any individual or business that purchases real estate probably likes to think that the boundaries of that property can be readily identified. Unfortunately, that isn't always true. While one property owner may believe that a certain boundary line applies, a neighbor may disagree. So, could issues with property boundaries lead to litigation in Nevada?

Addressing easement issues

Real estate issues can be some of the most complicated problems for Nevada residents to address because there can be so many different interests affecting any given parcel of property. Take, for example, the average homeowner. Sure, homeowners live on the property and use the house on the land as their primary residence, but what if they have a mortgage on the property? The mortgage company has an interest in what occurs on the land and what happens if the land is sold. Different interests can cause different issues that may need to be addressed.

Any real estate law issue demands a competent approach

Individuals, couples and businesspeople throughout Nevada who own real estate know that there can be certain circumstances when disputes with other parties can arise. For example, in the buying and selling process, there may be disputes about the title that need to be addressed. Or, in the process of a construction project, disputes may arise involving the landowner and the contractors who are engaged in the construction project. These issues, along with many others, require a competent approach in order to lead to a satisfactory result.

Why are developers turning to 'try before you buy' tactics?

Investing in real estate can be tricky in almost any type of market. Throughout the country, including in Nevada, there are ups and downs in the market that must be anticipated, or taken advantage of. Investors and real estate developers always need to keep their eyes on the pulse of the market they are jumping into, and that has some developers trying new tactics.

Avoid real estate disputes with a good home sale contract

Most Nevada residents who are involved in a real estate transaction are usually hopeful that the deal will go smoothly. Unfortunately, the reality is that some of these types of transactions, particularly residential real estate transactions, can present problems that can lead to disputes between the parties. In order to avoid the potential for any real estate disputes in these types of deals, a good home sale contract is a must.
