Case Studies:

  • Our client was sold a home with various latent defects throughout the premises, particularly in his basement. His agent did not properly counsel him and the proper paperwork was not given to him prior to the sale as required by the Real Estate Brokerage Act. We have launched a lawsuit against the vendor and both agents involved and the case is presently pending before the Court.
  • Our client is the co-owner of a triplex with his former spouse. The other co-owner refuses to recognize the right of title to the property of my client. He wishes to sell the property and receive his portion of the value which is contested by the other side. The present case is set for trial in the Superior Court.
  • Our client is a commercial landlord whose tenant is refusing to respect his lease, repeatedly paying late and littering the premises with dangerous materials. We served the tenant a letter of demand and a notice of cancellation to vacate the premises.
  • Our clients decided to purchase a duplex for investment purposes with a third co-owner. We drafted a co-ownership agreement to protect our client’s rights in the eventuality that a dispute arises between the parties. The agreement clearly outlines each party’s obligations going forward which is necessary for any partnership.
  • Me Eidelmann was co-counsel on a ten day trial involving a commercial immovable worth over three million dollars. Our client whom was the plaintiff was seeking damages and the eviction of a problematic tenant.
  • Our client was recently denied access to a condominium unit because she was the owner of a service dog, also known as a therapy dog. We intervened on her behalf serving the condo syndicate multiple letters of demand. Ultimately they were forced to admit that their conduct was illegal and our client will be moving into the premises.
