The Florida Everglades are a fragile ecosystem. Based on this fragility, the Department of Environmental Protection denied a landowner permission to conduct exploratory drilling there. That decision led to real estate disputes that are now headed for oral arguments under appeal.
There may Florida property owners facing legal problems at this time regarding boundary lines. Numerous boundary issues can prompt real estate disputes, especially if a situation arises where a land survey will not resolve the problem. To avoid such problems, however, it is always a good idea to order an updated land survey before erecting a fence or other structure near a neighboring property in order to determine an accurate boundary line.
Some people in Florida make profits by buying old homes, renovating them, then relisting them on the real estate market. A man in another state has been in the process of updating a home he purchased for $32,000 cash some time ago. Progress on the project has been delayed by unexpected real estate disputes, which the man says he does not quite understand.
Even after a Florida court hands down a ruling, it does not guarantee that litigation will end. In many situations, such as real estate disputes, if one or more of the parties involved believe a ruling to be unfair, an appeal can be filed. That is what happened following a recent breach of contract situation. An appeals court judge has now remanded a portion of the summary judgment that was issued in a lower court.
Florida residents can attest to the invaluable service local fight fighters provide to their communities. A fire department in another state is currently entangled in real estate disputes.

Florida property owners who are currently facing legal issues with brokers or insurers may want to follow this case.
When someone rents an apartment in Florida, he or she signs a contract that includes important information. Typical topics inherent in a rental lease include the dates the lease will remain active, the amount of rent and when payments will be made, as well as other issues, such as how many people may reside in a particular residence. Real estate disputes can arise, however, if the landlord and tenant disagree about an issue not covered in the lease.
NBA fans of old in Florida and beyond are typically quite familiar with John Stockton. While Stockton enjoyed a successful career as a point guard for the Jazz, he has encountered legal problems in other areas of his life, in particular in a situation where he and another man had purchased property. Real estate disputes arose when an investment company that apparently also had plans to buy the same property filed a lawsuit against Stockton and his co-buyer, Todd Brinkmeyer.
When Florida land buyers and real estate developers sign agreements, it sometimes takes years for the project or projects at hand to reach completion. As long as the agreements were validly entered into, all parties involved must continue to adhere to the terms of the contract as written, unless appropriate legal steps are taken to modify the contract. On the West Coast, an arbitration panel recently ruled on real estate disputes between a developer and an Indian tribe.
A rather contentious situation has arisen in another state that involves a widow and the church for which her now deceased husband had served as pastor.
