Common Sources of Commercial Litigation in Levittown, New York

Commercial Leases: In Levittown, New York, 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: If you're buying a house, office space, or a plot of land in Levittown, New York, you're probably aware of the fact that something can go wrong at any stage of the process. Whether the seller's title is defective (they don't actually have the ownership interest that they claim to be conveying to you), or there's a physical defect on the property that wasn't disclosed, commercial litigation might be the only option to resolve the disagreements that such problems are likely to create.

Sale of Goods: It's far more common for individuals to buy personal property, rather than real estate, in Levittown, New York. And, like any transaction, the sale of goods can lead to civil litigation if one of the parties feels that the other did not perform under the agreed-upon terms. For instance, if a buyer fails to pay the agreed price for the goods, or the seller delivers a late, defective, or incomplete order, there is going to be a dispute. In some cases, these disagreements lead to commercial litigation.

Business Loans: Frequently, when a business gets started in Levittown, New York, it has to take out a loan from a financial institution. If the business fails to make timely payments on the loan, it's possible that litigation will result.

Breach of Contract: When a business or individual in Levittown, New York promises another entity to provide a product or service in exchange for something of value (almost always, but not necessarily, money), they have entered a legally-binding agreement called a "contract." Both parties are now obligated to perform their commitments, as laid out in the agreement, and if one party fails to do so, the other can use commercial litigation to seek redress for any losses suffered as a result of this breach.
