The Litigation Process

During real estate litigation proceedings, the dispute is handled in the court system and is decided by a judge or jury. A typical real estate lawsuit will end with a damages award being issued from one party to another.

However, it is possible to settle at any point during litigation. If all involved parties agree, a judge may sign off on the agreement before the dispute reaches a trial.
