A land easement is a right to use a specific part of someone else’s property for a designated purpose. Conditions of an easement may be contained in the property deed or may be detailed in a separate document. Confusion and disagreement over easements is common and can cause bitter property disputes between neighbors. If you are caught in a dispute over an easement, you should seek legal counsel from an experienced land easement attorney like Attorney Jonathan S. Comitz to help you sort out your boundary dispute issues in a timely and competent manner.
In Northeastern Pennsylvania, there are a large number of rural communities, and border disputes between competing landowners and neighbors are relatively common. These disputes often involve land easements and cases involving easements are often more complex and drawn-out than one might expect. In this part of the state, property disputes involving easements and boundaries are further complicated by the Marcellus Shale Coalition and the Pennsylvania natural gas industry. Whether you have an easement running through your property or you have the rights to an easement on someone else’s property, you need to make sure that your easement rights are protected in your deed or chain of title (sequence of historical transfers of a property’s title). At Comitz Law Firm, LLC, we have extensive experience in border dispute litigation and enforcement of landowner rights. We network with some of the top surveyors and experts in the area to analyze the maps and chain of title so that we can properly establish landowner rights. We understand the ins and outs of real estate law and property disputes, and we are committed to enforcing your rights, regardless of whether your dispute is with a neighbor or an oil company.

Real Estate Disputes
If not handled properly, real estate disputes can be among the most lengthy and costly types of litigation. Whether the disputed property is residential or commercial, chances are you are losing money and have been forced to put some part of your business or personal life on hold until the dispute is resolved. We know that a real estate dispute can disrupt an otherwise successful business venture. A lease dispute can leave you without a place to do business, or a place to live. Regardless of the type of real estate dispute you are caught in, you need an experienced real estate attorney who will act quickly and aggressively on your behalf—an attorney like Jonathan S. Comitz.
At Comitz Law Firm, LLC, we know how draining a real estate dispute can be, both emotionally and financially. Our staff is well-versed in both state and local real estate law, and we have extensive experience litigating on behalf of both commercial and residential clients. Often, after a person has purchased a property, an issue may arise that was not disclosed by the seller and was somehow missed by the inspector. In cases like this there may be warranties that will allow the buyers to recoup money from the seller, the real estate agent who sold them the house, or the inspector who failed to identify the issue during inspection. It’s critical to act quickly when these issues arise, as Pennsylvania law dictates in most cases that you only have a year from the date of purchase to take legal action.
Attorney Jonathan S. Comitz has many years of experience litigating on behalf of buyers, sellers, inspection companies, and real estate companies. He is familiar with Pennsylvania property and real estate law, and he will fight tirelessly to protect your rights. Contact us today for a free consultation on your real estate dispute and let us put our expertise to work for you.
Recent Real Estate Dispute Settlement
In a recent case, Attorney Comitz represented a young couple who had just purchased their first house. The couple wanted a house with adjoining land for purposes related to the husband’s business. Their real estate agent recommended a property, and they decided it met their needs. After buying the house, however, a dispute arose between the couple and their neighbor, who informed them the adjoining land was his. The real estate agent had made a mistake when calculating what portions of the adjoining property were included with the house. Attorney Comitz filed an action and was successful in recovering a monetary settlement for the buyers. In situations like this, having an efficient and aggressive attorney who knows the ins and outs of real estate and property law can mean all the difference in the world.
