Connecticut Real Estate Litigators Handle Property Disputes

Norwalk advocates enforce clients’ rights throughout Connecticut

Conflicts that pertain to commercial or residential real estate can be complex and costly. To put yourself in the strongest position possible, it’s important to understand the relevant legal standards whether they were established generations ago or are the subject of current land use discussions. Located in Norwalk, DePanfilis & Vallerie, LLC has advised Connecticut clients on property issues for more than 40 years. Whether you’re engaged in a contract dispute arising from a transaction, seek assistance with a zoning matter, or disagree regarding the terms of a lease, our experienced attorneys will provide valuable counsel and advocacy.

Fairfield County firm litigates matters involving contracts, liens and land use

In Fairfield County and other areas of the state, our firm blends detailed knowledge of commercial and residential real estate with extensive litigation experience to pursue positive results in a full range of property-related conflicts, such as:

  • Transaction disputes — If you believe that the other party to your property sale contract or lease has not lived up to their legal obligations, we’ll conduct a thorough analysis of the relevant language within the agreement. Should you seek legal relief, our firm can use a variety of methods to achieve the outcome you’re entitled to, including settlement negotiations, mediation, litigation or revision to the contract terms.
  • Mechanic’s liens — When someone performs work or provides materials for a construction or repair project, they can establish a mechanic’s lien if they have not received the agreed-upon payment. We represent parties on both sides of these disagreements and strive to limit the time and expense needed to resolve these issues.
  • Boundary matters — Determining where one property ends and another begins is sometimes more complicated than it seems. Our attorneys review the relevant materials to provide clarity and vigorously enforce the rights of the people and businesses we represent.
  • Zoning and land use issues — Many Connecticut municipalities place strict restrictions on how certain parcels can be used. Before you make a major investment in a property, we’ll outline any potential land use problems and advocate for an appropriate adjustment if you so choose.

We handle each aspect of real estate litigation with the highest levels of skill and professionalism. Whether we’re drafting pleadings or advocating for you in court, you’ll have a full understanding of the pertinent legal issues and an important role in case strategy. Our firm is dedicated to keeping clients informed of potential litigation costs and seeks to settle cases through effective negotiation when that is in your best interests. If you lost a court decision in a property matter, we can represent you during the appeals process.
