Real Estate Litigation

When a dispute warrants alternative dispute resolution, such as negotiation, mediation, or arbitration, our real estate litigators have significant experience advising clients in these contexts as well.

McCandlish lawyers understand that some legal issues hit you where you live, or where you work, and much of what brings McCandlish lawyers to court arises out of disputes over real estate.  We have guided clients through litigation during real estate booms and busts are are well versed in the law governing commercial and residential leases and tenancies, construction disputes, condominiums and homeowners associations, suits to quiet title, partition real property, or to establish boundary lines, condemnation, and zoning and other land use issues.  When a dispute warrants alternative dispute resolution, such as negotiation, mediation, or arbitration, our real estate litigators have significant experience advising clients in these contexts as well.

In recent years, McCandlish lawyers have represented developers and land owners in significant matters involving the acquisition, use, financing and re-financing of land in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties and adjacent to the Dulles Rail Phase II right of way.

While the outcome of each case depends on the unique facts and circumstances of that specific case, McCandlish lawyers have been involved in some important and frequently cited cases involving real estate disputes, a small sampling of which include: Glasser & Glasser, PLC v. Jack Bays, Inc., 285 Va. 358 (2013); Xspedius Mgmt. Co. of Va., L.L.C. v. Stephan, 269 Va. 421 (2005); G & M Homes II v. Pearson, 263 Va. 107 (2002); Sully Station II Community Ass’n v.

Graham Virginia Quarries, Inc., 204 Va. 414 (1963); Leonard v. Boswell, 197 Va. 713 (1956).

Previous results are no guarantee of a specific outcome in your case because the outcome of each case and legal issue depends on a variety of factors, circumstances, and applicable law.

However, our extensive experience in real estate litigation will help you construct a strategy that best addresses your dispute.  Our lawyers are ready, willing and able to help.  You may contact any of them to discuss your issue in confidence.
