🏡 Breach of Contract
Many real estate disputes arise from the inability or refusal of one party to the contract of sale or lease of the real property to abide by the terms of the contract. Failure to make a down payment, make negotiated improvements or disclose property defects may represent of breach of the real estate sale or lease contract.
🏡 Environmental Issues
The New Jersey Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA), N.J.S.A. 13:1K-6, et seq., mandates that sellers of defined industrial sites clean up any hazardous material on the property. This must be done before the sale or transfer of the property. Violations of the ISRA can lead to serious consequences for the offending property owner.
