Reid and Riege litigators work with our corporate and real estate partners to handle numerous real property litigation matters, including zoning compliance cases, boundary line disputes, commercial foreclosure actions, real property tax appeals, and evictions. When disputes arise in purchase and sales agreements, we have brought actions to enforce the terms of such agreements, including actions for specific performance.
- Represented a national real estate firm that was owed more than $43 million by nursing home owners in four commercial foreclosure actions. Obtained judgments of strict foreclosure in favor of the client in actions brought in Connecticut Superior Court allowing the client to take title to the subject properties located in four towns.
- Argued a case of first impression to the Connecticut Supreme Court concerning the expansion of easements by necessity, clarifying decades of conflicting jurisprudence.
- Litigated a case involving a $4 million real property tax assessment, where, after multiple days of appraisal expert testimony, the court rendered a judgment accepting in full the client’s appraisal of the property value, saving the client over $100,000 in taxes over five years.
