REAL ESTATE LAW
Alaska Construction Defect Attorneys
If you are involved in a dispute over the sale of real estate, you want an experienced attorney to protect your rights. There are laws in Alaska that place absolute duties on sellers to disclose known defects. Whether you are the buyer or the seller in a disputed transaction, you want a lawyer who knows and understands the law, and who has helped others in situations like yours.
At the Law Office of Dattan Scott Dattan, we have represented individuals and businesses in Alaska since 1984. We take a straightforward and thorough approach, fully investigating all aspects of your claim, and telling you what you need to hear, even if it’s not what you want to hear. We will carefully explain the law and the process, as well as your options and chances of success, so that you can make good decisions that protect your interests.
Our Real Estate Practice
We focus our real estate practice on disputes that arise out of real estate transactions. We represent sellers and buyers, handling cases involving allegations of:
- Breach of contract
- Failure to provide proper disclosures under state or federal law
Breach of contract disputes can arise over lease and rental agreements. Rental agreements must contain certain provisions, and when a landlord misrepresents certain claims made about the property, a dispute may arise. Rental property disputes can also arise out of subleasing, damage deposits, and discrimination.
Regardless of the type of dispute, our real estate attorneys understand the ins and outs of residential property disputes and can handle any complex matter.
Proper disclosure on residential or commercial property must always occur during a purchase and sale. However, disputes sometimes arise when the physical conditions of the property have either been misrepresented or omitted. Claims typically arise from environmental factors, insulation factors, and building/zoning permits or regulations. Claims can also arise when a building inspector finds certain structural issues in a building. A contract must be clearly drafted and detailed with the building’s condition in accurate and clear terms.
Disclosure is also linked to misrepresentation. Misrepresentation occurs when a landlord or a seller knowingly provides false information about a building or the state of the building. As a landlord often has a fiduciary duty to a renter, there are remedies available to tenants who have been misled. Contact one of our Anchorage real estate attorneys to fight for your rights.
We represent landlords and tenants in lease disputes, taking care of issues related to eviction proceedings, as well as damage to property or the return of a security deposit. We will also help you negotiate the terms of a lease.
Our attorneys also protect the rights of parties involved in boundary disputes.
We advise buyers and sellers of residential and commercial property, helping them resolve issues at any stage of a real estate deal, from the negotiation of terms to the closing. We will review all documents necessary to finalize your transaction, from deeds or financing instruments to the closing statement.
