Ownership Disputes

Ownership disputes, an umbrella term that covers a wide variety of issues occurring on or around your property, can be incredibly frustrating and contentious. Some of the most common issues at the heart of ownership disputes are things like property lines and fence placement. These might seem like relatively minor frustrations, but they can quickly spiral into life-disrupting bouts of stress. Gaines LLC understands that these issues can be confusing and overwhelming. That’s why we work hard to end them quickly and painlessly.

Condemnation Litigation and Eminent Domain

Condemnation is the word used to reference the state, federal, or local government taking ownership of private property. The owner doesn’t have to approve of either the sale of said property nor the purchase price, and the private property can be seized even without the owner’s consent. This is part of the reason why condemnation, also known as eminent domain, is such a hotly debated issue. Gaines LLC can help uphold your rights.
