At So. Cal. Realty Law, we have experience in every aspect of real estate transactions and litigation. The subject matter of litigation includes real estate fraud, non-disclosure disputes, professional negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, California Business & Professions Code, easement and boundary line disputes, to name a few. Special litigation remedies available in real property disputes include preliminary injunctions to stop foreclosure or other activity, writs of attachment to secure recovery from real property, and lis pendens or Notice of Real Property Action recorded with the county to prevent the transfer of property to third parties while litigation is pending. The attorneys stress the importance of mediating disputes prior to litigation, if possible.
The attorneys draft contracts, addenda, and other types of documents to fine-tune any transaction to meet a seller’s and buyer’s needs. Transactions may involve commercial or residential property, including traditional sales, negotiating short sales with mortgage lenders, drafting lease options and options to purchase, and engaging the services of escrow and title to assist. Attorney Welsh-Levin is a real estate broker with access to the Multiple Listing Service for the County of San Diego.
Some of our clients are involved in complaints, investigations, and hearings with the California Bureau of Real Estate, and discipline or ethics panels at the local Association of REALTORS®. The attorneys assist clients with correspondence and representation with these entities.
Attorney Welsh-Levin has testified as an expert witness in real estate cases involving standard of care among real estate professionals, and standard of care for loan modification review and assistance.
