Civil Law > Real Estate

Real Estate matters are deceptively complex because there are a lot of moving parts to the transactions. And sometimes the issues aren’t discovered until years after the sale.

A review of the sales contract itself may be beneficial, especially if there are extraordinary circumstances involved. Sometimes problems arise within the language of a deed, wherein the terminology is extremely specific in legal terms (even a common quit claim deed can be fatal to a conveyance if not properly executed). Irregularities in the chain of title can give rise to the need of a quiet title action. Other typical issues involve property line disputes and easements. Each issue is fact dependent as applied to Missouri statutes and case law. (Interestingly, the law in Missouri regarding fences depends upon the county in which the property is situated.)
