Are you and your partner in the market for a house? While the prospect of owning a shared home with your boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, or partner can be an exciting one, disputes and litigation between these parties are common. In the most typical scenario, a break up is usually the trigger for the dispute, which sees both parties going to court over who owns the property and/or what should be done with it.
Ownership disputes over the titles of real property are not uncommon, and these types of legal conflicts can quickly spiral out of control. Disputes of this nature often involve claims from a “silent” owner who is not officially on a title, or claims centering on an owner who should not have been on the title to begin with.
Not every landlord-tenant relationship is meant to be. Sometimes evictions happen, and sometimes renters need to leave before their lease is up. Life happens, but before you move on, you should know your legal rights as a renter.
One of the most pivotal ideas that contributed the development of the United States was the inclusion of personal property rights into the constitution.

California’s Statute of Frauds requires three types of contract to be written. First, leases that last longer than a year. Second, commission agreements between real estate licensees and principles. Third, real estate sales contracts. Each of these contracts serves an important purpose. Namely, they protect both parties from negative repercussions. In extreme cases, though, the law will provide for either party to break these contracts without facing legal implications.
