Family Property Dispute Lawyers Can Assist You

Holding on to inherited land is a popular decision.

Preserving the old family land or that lake property where your grandparents taught you the value of family may come at a price as we age. Some family members may not want to hold on to the “land”, to avoid dealing with family issues and simply want to move forward to create new memories, especially if there’s a discrepancy with the land and the group can not get onboard with the associated costs and responsibilities of the upkeep.

Despite the tensions and rivalries that naturally exist in all families, family conflict is not inevitable. Land received by inheritance is often “family” land that has been passed down and has an emotional attachment for family members if each time a family gathering occurs and disdain about inherited land comes into play upon each family gathering.

A significant number of inheritance disputes also involve testators and beneficiaries who may come from dysfunctional families, may have mentally illness or an addiction, or suffer from death anxiety.

When two or more people own the same property, one of the owners CAN force a sale of the jointly owned property via a partition action or lawsuit.

Seeking a Real Estate Attorney you can trust when you are dealing with joint ownership property can be time consuming and costly.
