Real Estate Litigation: Specific Performance

If you have a contract to buy real property and seller then refuses to sell, you may have the right to enforce the sale.

Specific Performance/Lis Pendens

Having a well-drafted contract is very important in real estate transactions.  If your contract is well drafted and the seller refuses to sell the property to you for a legitimate reason, you may be able to file an action against seller for specific performance and record a lis pendens against the property, preventing seller from selling the property to another buyer.

When property prices are rising, some sellers may try to cancel their contract if they receive a higher offer than yours.  If that ever happens, you may be able to file a lawsuit asking the court to force seller to sell the property to you.  You may also be able to record a lis pendens thereby preventing the property’s sale to a third party. 

Conversely, if a buyer refuses to honor his obligations under a purchase agreement, the seller may file a suit against the buyer, forcing him to buy the property.

We have handled countless specific performance actions, successfully forcing buyers or sellers to perform under the terms of their contract.
