Bad House Cases
Are you in a buyer/seller dispute that involves problems with the home or property that was sold? If so, The Law Offices of Mark C. Watson can help you.

Another important service that we offer to real estate brokers and agents is advice to keep you out of court. Many realtors discuss problems with transactions as a sale proceeds. Doing so is much less costly than a court proceeding and will reduce the risk of having complaints filed against you with the Department of Real Estate. Engaging The Law Offices of Mark C.

If you have requested an extension for a foreclosure sale and have not received one or are getting no reply we can, in many cases, enjoin the sale. If the property was sold we can, in many cases, set aside the sale.
