If you are an individual, executive or business owner that is facing real estate litigation, finding an experienced attorney to represent your case is crucial. Real estate is an expensive asset to have, and success or failure in real estate litigation can be the making or breaking point for individuals involved.
At McDougall LawFirm, LLC, our attorneys understand how important real estate matters are to our clients. We will work with our clients to comprehend the legal issues involved in their case. Our Hilton Head real estate litigation attorneys have been representing clients in a wide range of litigation matters, including:
Condemnation: The standards, as well as the interpretation of those standards, can be highly debatable.
Eminent domain: Lawsuits are common when a municipal entity takes land from individuals for public use.
Predatory real estate lending: In recent years, financial institutions have increased their use of irresponsible and predatory lending, and on the other hand, false allegations of predatory lending have been on the rise.
Mortgage fraud: Scam artists come up with new ways to cheat the system every day, and mortgage fraud is becoming increasingly popular.
Contract disputes: Real estate transactions are among the most complex and substantial contracts that people enter, in the commercial and residential contexts. Contracts are often poorly written, misunderstood and disputed.
McDougall LawFirm, LLC will represent landowners in condemnation and eminent domain proceedings. If a governmental entity or a utility company claims your property, whether you're a business or an individual, you are entitled to payment for the property that's being taken. One of the most difficult aspects of eminent domain is determining the value of the property being discussed. More often than not, the governmental entity or utility company will provide an offer of compensation for the property based on a biased appraisal that's working against the landowner.
Our attorneys at McDougall LawFirm, LLC can assist clients in having their property appraised at an unbiased rate. In many cases, the difference between the client's appraisal rate and the governmental entity or utility company's rate can be substantial. We have access to experienced appraisers who can provide insight and data into the fair value of your property. At McDougall LawFirm, LLC, most cases involving real estate litigation are taken on a contingency fee basis*, with no upfront costs to you.
Both the United States and South Carolina Constitutions mention that citizens can own land, and if a governmental entity or utility company takes your property, you're entitled to fair compensation for the value of the property. The attorneys at McDougall LawFirm, LLC can assist clients in determining and understanding the value of their property.
If a governmental entity or utility company makes an attempt to condemn a client's property in an eminent domain legal matter, clients are still entitled to the fair value of their property being condemned. When the governmental entity offers an appraised value for your property, there is a chance that it will be lower than the actual fair value of the property. To learn more about how you can receive a fair appraisal of your property in a real estate litigation matter, contact our attorneys at McDougall LawFirm, LLC.

Occasionally, the fees and costs of the legal action may be recovered from the governmental agency or utility company involved. The initial consultation with our law firm is free.
