Real Estate

Real Estate Litigation

Real estate litigation is one of Rastegar Law’s highly developed areas of expertise which focuses on litigation arising from real estate and real property transactions. Litigation is an essential path to protect the value of real estate where there has been fraud, non-disclosure, concealment, or hidden defects which affect the value and marketability of the specific real property acquired. 

Where the value and marketability of a property is diminished by fraud and misrepresentation, or where a property simply isn’t what it was represented to be, the burden of that loss should be borne by those responsible. Mikel Rastegar has been successfully litigating these cases for 15 years.

Real Estate Contract Disputes

Real estate contract disputes are rarely accidental. They are most often the result of a calculated and intentional desire by one party to take advantage of another party, with brokers and agents either complicit or looking the other way, and quite often are the result of deception and fraud, leaving the new owner and buyer with a dilemma, whether to bear the loss or pursue recovery. 

A consultation and case evaluation with Mikel Rastegar is the key to gaining information and insight to resolve this dilemma and decide the best course of action.

Commercial And Residential Real Estate Transactions

California presents many challenges regarding real estate. It has exquisite locations with incomparable beauty and opportunities. But it also presents many problematic issues, from paperwork and documentation to zoning, land-use regulation and competition for limited parcels.

Real Estate Transaction Disclosure in California

Real estate transaction disclosure requirements in California are simple and straight-forward: requiring compete and full disclosure of all known facts and conditions materially affecting the value or desirability of the property from the perspective of the buyer.  Not surprisingly, many real property disclosures fail to comply, through the intentional manipulation of information and disclosures to the advantage of the seller. Many of these are minor.

However, when they seriously affect the value of the property, the law provides rights, protections, and recovery to the property owner.
