Landlord-Tenant Disputes

Ventura Litigation Lawyers

With a firm both statewide and local in scope, we provide a full range of real estate legal services including development, construction, leasing, landlord-tenant, acquisitions, dispositions and joint ventures. We represent a broad array of clients including property management firms, commercial landlords, investors, lenders, borrowers, homeowners, buyers, sellers, corporations, partnerships, joint ventures, LLCs and individuals. Our commercial real estate attorneys are skilled and experienced in handling unique and challenging real estate issues. We anticipate the unexpected, are proactive and understand the art of advancing our clients' financial interests.

We represent commercial property owners, general contractors and subcontractors in construction defect litigation. Many of our clients are owners of apartments, strip-malls, and office buildings. Disputes over construction defects often end up in court. Navigating the litigation process requires experience, legal acumen and deep understanding of construction law. In some cases, defects may be patent and obvious, while many are also "latent defects," which are hidden defects which often are more challenging to prove.

Due in part to the subprime mortgage scandal, state and federal law enforcement authorities have been giving greater attention to fraudulent activity in construction loans and real estate development projects. If the information provided on a construction loan application is incorrect, allegations of fraud may result. Our attorneys work closely with forensic accountants, investigators and underwriters to develop a strategic defense plan of action.

When people sell a home, townhome, or other residential property in the state of California, they have a duty to disclose certain known defects in their property. Too often, sellers engage in real estate fraud by intentionally omitting knowledge of defective property conditions to purchasers. Slaughter, Reagan & Cole, LLP is adept had handling these types of cases with an approach that focusses on reasoned and informed discussion over the financial implications of any litigation as well as an accurate evaluation of liability.
