Fremont Real Estate Litigation

Fremont, a culturally diverse city in Alameda County, is one of the most populous localities in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is a site for numerous personal and commercial construction developments with the accompanying purchases, sales and transfers, as well as numerous foreclosures and Homeowners’ Association (HOA) disputes. Fremont's real estate market has seen many ups and downs over the last few years.

Knowledgeable Fremont real estate litigation attorney James G. Schwartz has more than 35 years of legal experience in the Bay Area, shepherding clients through all aspects of a real estate transaction or dispute, including sale, purchase, development, and occupancy. He works on litigation related to a full spectrum of projects, representing developers, builders, owners, buyers, commercial tenants, mortgage companies, real estate brokers, and HOAs.

What Kinds of Issues Arise in Real Estate Litigation?

Many different problems can occur in connection with real estate transactions. When these problems cannot be resolved, they often turn into litigation. Some common problems in real estate litigation in California are disputes over title, purchase and sale disputes, commercial lease disputes, breach of fiduciary duty claims, mortgage and foreclosure issues, HOA disputes, fraud and misrepresentation, and land use or zoning problems. Our office can hit the ground running on your real estate lawsuit because we have substantial experience with all of these issues, and we understand how decisions in a real estate lawsuit may have consequences for your business.

For example, you may have purchased commercial real estate using a real estate agent who knew of particular defects, but breached his or her fiduciary duty towards you by failing to disclose them. In turn, you may face liability from a commercial tenant for those same defects who may argue that certain provisions in a form commercial lease are unconscionable. Perhaps you are also dealing with unforeseen zoning issues. Mr. Schwartz can prosecute your breach of fiduciary duty action against the real estate agent, while protecting you from the lawsuit by your tenant and helping you deal with zoning issues.

In many large law firms, associates with minimal experience are trained on your dime, and your case may be staffed by attorneys do not understand the impact of a particular litigation step on your long-term business goals. You will not have to deal with this when working with us. Our office is focused on personalized, cost-effective solutions. We keep an eye trained on what strategies will be best for your case, as well as for your overall real estate investment, in the long haul.
