Many Florida communities include homeowners associations. They are typically organized to govern maintenance, preservation and enhancement of subdivision properties. A homeowner in University Park has taken legal action regarding real estate disputes involving a proposed purchase of University Park Country Club.
There are various styles of homes and communities in Florida. Some homeowners have expansive properties where large amounts of acreage is spread between themselves and their neighbors. Others live property line to property line, and real estate disputes can erupt if homeowners disagree about fences, shrubs or other issues.
When Florida neighbors disagree about property lines or other issues, it often leads to rancorous disputes that are difficult to resolve. Real estate disputes can be quite complicated because the laws that govern such matters are often complex. If those directly involved are unable to achieve an amicable solution to a particular problem, they may seek the court's intervention to make a decision for them. That's apparently what happened in the case of Led Zeppelin rock star, Jimmy Page, and his next door neighbor, Robbie Williams.
Some Florida residents get along quite well with their neighbors. Others, however, are currently involved in real estate disputes, many of which include issues concerning nuisance and trespass laws. A person might say that his or her neighbor is a nuisance but that does not necessarily mean the situation fits the legal definition of the word.
Florida residents and others across the country are kicking off a brand new year, which for many, includes setting personal or business-related goals that they hope to achieve in the months ahead. Such goals often include a desire to buy or sell property or to launch a new business. It is unfortunate (but not uncommon) when such endeavors spark real estate disputes.
Jared Kushner's family have been entangled in some recent legal problems. The situation pertains to real estate disputes that Kushner Cos., who owns property in another state, has been engaged in with tenants who rent apartments in the building the company owns. Kushner Cos. is owned by the Kushner family. As many apartments in Florida are, these units are rent-regulated; however, Kushner Cos. says it was not aware of that when it calculated the rents.
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.
