The acquisition, possession, and transfer of real property is at once one of the most lucrative and one of the most litigated areas of business in the State of Florida. On both the commercial and residential level, various disputes arise regarding real property. Van Ness Law Firm represents clients involved in real property disputes, including negotiating settlements and/or litigating the following through trial:

  • Cases concerning adverse possession of property
  • Cases concerning boundary disputes and easements
  • Quiet title actions
  • Cases concerning breaches of mortgages
  • Brokerage disputes
  • Cases concerning the “procuring cause” of a sale
  • Real estate errors and omissions
  • Disputes involving liens


Van Ness Law Firm works first to identify the problem impacting the client and the real property and proceeds to offer creative solutions and strategy. Although some property disputes may require a soft touch, others involve complex, multi-party litigation in state or federal court.

With respect to this practice, we represent individual land owners, businesses, brokerages, and title insurance companies.
