There once was a time when a real estate transaction only involved a handshake, a check, and a deed. Today, real estate transactions, especially in California, are some of the most complex matters in business. Any missteps with environment reviews, contamination, title defects, financing issues, land use restrictions, insurance coverage, long term leases, encroachments, entitlement denials and defective construction can destroy the profitability of an acquisition, a commercial lease or a development project. FitzGerald Yap Kreditor has represented a broad spectrum of clients, including, private and public developers, investors, property owners, syndicators, tenants and landlords. Our experience includes handling disputes involving:

  • Purchase and sale agreements
  • Lease and sale of properties
  • Landlord-tenant
  • Material misrepresentations or nondisclosures made in real property transactions
  • Boundary disputes
  • Title disputes
  • Nuisance and trespass
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Adverse possession
  • Zoning, subdivision, planning and other land use issues
  • Brokers, agents and their fiduciary and other common law duties
