Common Sources of Commercial Litigation in Fort Collins, Colorado

Commercial Leases: In Fort Collins, Colorado, the vast majority of small businesses need some physical location from which to operate. Most of the time, business owners rent this space from a third party, and have a written agreement laying out these rental terms. This contract is called a "commercial lease." These contracts are occasionally breached by one, or both, of the parties involved. When this occurs, commercial litigation is generally the result.

Sales of Real Estate: When buying a house or a plot of land in Fort Collins, Colorado, there are numerous things that can go wrong, which can lead to commercial litigation. Whether there is a defect in the seller's title, a physical defect on the property that the seller did not disclose, or the buyer fails to make timely payment, a conflict, which might lead to commercial litigation, is possible.

Sale of Goods: Buying and selling personal property is far more typical than buying and selling real estate in Fort Collins, Colorado. Consequently, it's also more common for commercial litigation to arise out of disagreements concerning the sale or purchase of goods, as opposed to land. Some common problems that can come up in the sale of goods are a seller's failure to deliver the right product on time, or the buyer failing to pay the price that they agreed on. Most of the time, reasonable, professional people can settle these disagreements amongst themselves. However, in fairly rare cases, they have to resort to commercial litigation when a negotiated settlement is unrealistic.

Business Loans: In Fort Collins, Colorado, it's typical for new businesses to require a loan from a bank to get started. This can, sometimes, lead to disputes between the borrower and lender. For instance, the borrower might habitually fail to make payments on time. This will lead to the lender trying to collect, and possibly resorting to commercial litigation.

Breach of Contract: When a Fort Collins, Colorado business agrees to provide something of value (a product or service) in exchange for something else of value (typically money), a contract is formed. A contract, put simply, is any agreement that the law will enforce. Contracts can be very simple, or incredibly intricate. In either case, if one party fails to perform under the terms of the contract, commercial litigation is one way to resolve the ensuing conflict.
