Partition Actions: Dividing Property Between Domestic Partners

While partition actions may be necessary in a variety of situations, most of the cases we see arise during the dissolution of a domestic partnership/ We represent clients seeking to obtain their fair share in a mutually owned property.

Resolving Disputes Between Landlords and Tenants

As an important part of our real estate law practice, the Delaware firm of Woloshin, Lynch & Associates has extensive experience representing commercial and residential landlords and tenants in a broad range of disputes, including:

  • Representing landlords regarding nonpayment
  • Representing tenants regarding unfair rent increases
  • Representing tenants regarding failure to repair or harassment
  • Representing Commercial landlords and tenants in contact disputes

One of the biggest mistakes a landlord or tenant can make is to resort to self help in resolving a dispute. The law may be on your side in the underlying matter but it can be easy to undermine your case by pursuing retaliatory actions if you feel you have been wronged or taken advantage of. You may find yourself having lost the chance to achieve a satisfactory result through proper channels. Contact us today for sound legal guidance in a free consultation.

Litigation May Not Always Be the Answer

The addition to these landlord-tenant disputes is not always a lawsuit. For example, if a dispute arises over a landlord’ right to enter a tenant’s apartment, a quick and cost effective approach may be to sit down and discuss the issue. At Woloshin, Lynch & Associates, we understand the importance of maintaining a cordial landlord-tenant relationship whenever possible.

When a dispute cannot be resolved through discussion or negotiation, it may become necessary to file a lawsuit. Keeping accurate and detailed documentation can be a key to winning your case. Our lawyers can guide you through the process of obtaining relevant evidence that may prove crucial to the success of your claim.

Before taking any action regarding a landlord-tenant dispute, it is important to discuss your rights and realistic legal options with an experienced attorney. Contact our offices in Wilmington or Middletown today to schedule an informative consultation at no cost.
