Breach of contract lawsuits and litigation are the most common business disputes for a business or property owner. Whether the lawsuit arises from a partnership agreement, a purchase and sale agreement, a lease or other business contract, a dispute will often revolve around a written or oral agreement and the breach of that agreement by one of the parties to the agreement. The lawyers at Wagenseller Law Firm have handled all types of breach of contract disputes throughout Los Angeles and Southern California.
Typically the remedy for a breach of contract action is money and that is what a court judgment will typically award. However, because real estate is considered to be unique, a real estate lawsuit relating to who owns (or should own) a piece of property should also include a claim for specific performance.
This claim, which goes hand in hand with a breach of contract claim, asks that the court force the other party to perform their end of the bargain. For example, if a party enters into a contract to sell a warehouse but then later fails to live up to that contract, the buyer can ask the court to compel the seller to actually sell the building to buyer (rather than just award money damages). Make sure that you deal with an attorney who has experience in real estate and breach of contract litigation when a real estate transaction is at issue.
