From easements to view protection, from large-scale developments to enforcing a covenant, land use and real estate issues are often extremely complicated areas of law that affect our daily lives. At Fauver, Large, Archbald & Spray, we incorporate the firm’s proactive philosophy into representing our clients in these often difficult issues. We have represented numerous clients in areas of land use and real estate including:

  • Easement disputes
  • View Disputes
  • Lot line adjustments
  • Enforcement of CC&Rs
  • Enforcement of Purchase and Sale Agreements
  • Disputes of Public Right of Ways
  • Eminent Domain Cases
  • Partition Actions
  • Zoning Issues

Our approach is somewhat different from other firms, however, because we are mindful that, while there are legal aspects to these issues, they are often very emotional, as well. We are mindful that most of these issues disturb the quiet and peace that our clients have come to expect in their very homes. We work with our clients to achieve their objectives through coalitions and agreement, whenever possible. Our philosophy is to use litigation sparingly, and to achieve our clients’ objectives through non-judicial methods, such as mediation, arbitration, or even informal discussions.

Of course, there are times when consensus and agreement are not possible. In those cases, we have a team skilled in litigation, prepared to employ the services of the court system to enforce the rights of our clients. This often happens in area of commercial unlawful detainer, where we have successfully achieved possession of our clients’ premises.
