Disputes frequently arise in the transfer, use, or construction of any real-property interest. Landlords and tenants disagree about the use of the leasehold estate, or about each other’s obligations under the lease. Vendors and purchasers of land frequently clash over hidden, unknown, or undiscovered conditions on the land that become important after the land is sold; also, they battle over the land’s ultimate sales price, their competing obligations for taxes, and their obligations to obtain (or to accept) financing necessary for the sale. Contractors and building owners (or home owners) often collide over the value, quality, and timeliness of constructions or refurbishments.
