Asheville Real Estate Lawyers
Details are important in real estate transactions. Cutting down old shade trees may lead to questions of the exact location of a boundary line and survey pins. Interpretations of a definition contained in a homeowners association (HOA) bylaw may differ and result in a lawsuit against the association for failure to enforce. The date a construction defect was uncovered may limit available remedies.
In any of these scenarios, a major investment is at stake and the outcome may impact the sale or purchase of a property. Founded in 1953, Patla, Straus, Robinson & Moore, P.A. has a long record of handling real property transactions and of resolving property disputes in the Asheville area.
