Real Estate Transactions Do Not Always Go Smoothly
Davidson County has experienced steady population growth over the past decade, and according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the population in Antioch and surrounding areas will continue to grow for the foreseeable future. As populations grow, real estate transactions and other real estate-matters may become a fact of life—disputes will inevitably arise.
You may find yourself involved in a real estate-related dispute if you:
- Sold or are selling a property
- Bought or are buying a property
- Are a renter
- Are a landlord renting a property
- Are building a home or have built a home or other property
Depending on your status in relation to the property at the heart of your real estate negotiations, then you may be involved (or become involved) in a dispute with:
- A tenant
- Your landlord
- A person who sold you a property, or agreed to sell you a property
- A person you sold the property to, or agreed to buy your property
- Somebody you co-signed a lease with
- A neighbor
- A contractor
- A real estate agent
- A local or state government
The services that you may ask of a lawyer will likely depend on the specific type of litigation or potential litigation—that you are facing.

What You Can Expect a Lawyer to Do
A lawyer may be familiar with real estate law governing Antioch or another part of Tennessee where your real estate litigation originates.
If you choose to accept assistance from a lawyer as you attempt to resolve your real estate-related dispute, then you may expect your lawyer to:
- Conduct research into the fundamental elements of your dispute, both from a legal perspective and as it pertains to the specific details of your dispute
- Collect any available evidence that could impact the outcome of your litigation (which may include contracts, purchase orders, leases, or any other paperwork pertaining to the dispute at hand)
- File any paperwork on your behalf that may be necessary to resolve your real estate dispute, such as permit applications or legal motions
- Speak with you to understand what your ideal goal is for the outcome of your litigation
- Speak with the attorney or attorneys for the defendant(s) named in your lawsuit to see if a resolution—such as a financial settlement or an agreement to rectify wrongdoings such as shoddy construction—is possible.
- If it is necessary, argue your legal case at a trial
- Explain to a jury or judge why you are in the right, and why the legal outcome you hope for is just
- Defend your rights
The outcome you hope for will likely depend on the nature of the real estate problem with which you are dealing. A positive outcome for you could include:
- Monetary awards
- An agreement by somebody to take some action, such as vacating a property or completing an unfulfilled construction project
- The lifting of constraints that are currently preventing you from taking some action, such as renovating your home
- A decision as to the status of an agreement—such as a proposed sale of a property—that is in your favor
Whatever your stated goal, a lawyer can work on your behalf to achieve it.
