There is no doubt that the real estate market is heating up in Santa Barbara at a fervent pace. The volume of transactions has increased dramatically over the last several months.
It is now uncommon when a new, reasonably priced listing does not become a “multiple offer” situation where the listing price gets “bid up”. As a result of the intense competition to “tie up” properties, we have witnessed a lack of attention to detail in the terms and performance of the contract. This carelessness creates problems.
Consequently, we have been actively assisting clients, both buyers and sellers, who are experiencing disagreements during the escrow process. We have encountered and successfully resolved a wide variety of issues and disputes that occur during the purchase and sale transaction.
Whether it’s a Buyer who’s not timely waiving contingencies, a Seller who wants to take his 120” LCD TV attached to the wall even though it’s not “excluded” from the contract, a lender who’s not circulating loan documents, or a Seller who’s failing to timely remove an existing tenant, we continue to effectively resolve an assortment and challenging mixture of disagreements.
Our goal is to always avoid litigation. As a client, you deserve resolution of your issue without the time, expense, stress, and uncertainty of litigation.
Too many attorneys take a hard-nosed, black and white approach to resolving disputes. In fact, the ugly truth is that many are hellbent to litigate. After all, ending up in litigation is an easy and personally profitable result for attorneys to achieve; on the other hand, avoiding it is what takes skill and experience.
