Property Issues We Typically Do Not Handle

Owners’ Counsel of America and OCA lawyers strive to help as many property owners as possible. However, there are a number of property-related issues that we typically do not handle. Within this category are the following matters:

  • General Real Estate Matters
  • Property Disputes Between Private Landowners
  • Landlord and Tenant Disputes
  • Short Term Rental Disputes
  • Housing Disputes and Evictions
  • Foreclosure and Real Estate Liens
  • Public Nuisance Cases
  • Seizures of Property Due to Building and Land Use Code Violations (Click here however for a useful article on this issue)
  • Zoning and Land Use Code Violations

If you are dealing with any of the above legal matters, an experienced and knowledgeable real estate or land use lawyer in your community should be able to advise and assist you. If you cannot afford to hire legal counsel, you may wish to contact the Attorney Bar Association in your state, county or city or a Legal Aid organization in your community.
