Common Types of Property Disputes in Arkansas

Property Disputes & Transactions Header Image

Boundary Line Disputes

Boundary line disputes occur when neighboring property owners disagree about the exact location of their property line. These disputes can arise for a variety of reasons, such as conflicting property surveys or a failure to accurately mark the property boundary. There might also be boundaries that have been incorrectly drawn or fenced in that need to be remedied. Resolving boundary line disputes requires a thorough understanding of property law and the ability to negotiate with the opposing party to reach a mutually agreeable solution.

Ownership Disputes

Ownership disputes occur when there is a disagreement over who has legal ownership of a property. These disputes can arise when there is a defect in the title, such as a lien or a prior claim to the property, or when there is a dispute over an inheritance. Proving ownership in these cases can be complex and require extensive documentation and legal expertise. Typically, petitions to quiet title are filed when settlement negotiations are not successful.

Breach of Contract Disputes

Breach of contract disputes can arise in any type of property transaction, such as buying or selling property or leasing property. These disputes occur when one party fails to fulfill their obligations under the contract, such as failing to pay rent or failing to deliver the property as agreed. Resolving these disputes can require legal action.

Eminent Domain Disputes

Eminent domain is the right of the government to take private property for public use. While property owners are entitled to just compensation for the taking of their property, disputes can arise over the amount of compensation offered by the government. In these cases, it is essential to have an attorney who understands the legal requirements for eminent domain and can negotiate with the government to ensure fair compensation for the property owner.
