How to Resolve Joint Ownership Disputes
By: Christopher J. Charles, Esq.
What happens when joint property owners disagree on whether to sell their property? This could involve friends, business partners, or unmarried couples. Hopefully the joint owners have a written agreement such as a partnership agreement, operating agreement for their limited liability company, or a tenants in common (TIC) agreement. But what if the joint owners neglected to negotiate a written agreement before they acquired the property together? If one party wants to sell and the other doesn’t, an awkward impasse arises.

Defining Due Diligence in Real Estate Transactions
By: Christopher J. Charles, Esq.
In terms of a real estate transaction, due diligence is the ability of the buyer to inspect and review every aspect of the real estate before closing on the transaction. A buyer can hire professionals to perform independent inspections, personally inspect the property, and review records related to the property to perform its due diligence. Due diligence is a regular part of all real estate transactions, both residential and commercial.
