Once the contracts have been signed and the sale of your new home is finalized, you may run into issues regarding your property’s boundaries and easements. Over the life of the home, boundary lines may become unclear, and your neighbor could take advantage of the lack of clarity by crossing over the property boundaries and, in some cases, by actually taking your property through a statutory process called adverse possession (sometimes called “squatter’s rights”). The Denton Peterson attorneys have experience reestablishing clear boundary lines between you and your neighbors. In fact, we recently obtained a jury verdict after trial on a quiet title action to do just that. Furthermore, we have experience defending and bringing claims for adverse possession to protect your property from encroaching neighbors. We are also prepared to draft, review, and help you enforce deed restrictions, easement agreements, well agreements, private road maintenance agreements, and any other agreements entered into between you, your neighbors and previous owners to the properties.
Trusted Arizona Real Estate Investment Attorneys
When you purchase a property in a Homeowners’ Association, you open yourself up to additional legal issues. Buying property in an HOA contractually binds you, along with the Association, its Board of Directors, and other owners within the Association, to maintain your property and to use it in specific ways. Several legal issues may arise from this contractual relationship. First, the Association may incorrectly interpret or improperly enforce the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (“CC&Rs”), the bylaws, and any other governing documents. The Association may breach the contract or “selectively enforce” the terms of the contract more severely against you than against your HOA neighbors. Denton Peterson attorneys have many years of experience bringing claims on behalf of HOA members for the HOA’s selective enforcement of the CC&Rs, failure to maintain common areas, negligent use of Association funds, and many other inappropriate actions. The Denton Peterson team is also well-equipped to help you amend your HOA’s governing documents and to defend you and your property from unreasonable penalties.
