Real Estate Dispute

Dispute resolution regarding real estate is one of the practice areas on which City-Yuwa Partners places most emphasis in its litigation/dispute resolution group.

Following the collapse of the bubble economy in Japan, City-Yuwa played a leading role in the major controversy of whether a claim for increase/reduction of rent under Article 32 of the Land Lease and House Lease Act is permitted under a sublease agreement, which involved not only the real estate industry, but also legal scholars specializing in real estate laws. Representing major real estate companies, City-Yuwa contributed to the establishment of judicial precedents with regard to such controversy.

Real estate disputes are a profound practice area which not only covers a wide range of issues, but also often requires a different solution for each dispute. The worrisome aspect of real estate disputes is that one mistake may cause the amount in dispute to become extremely high. Among real estate disputes, a dispute in the amount of a few hundred million yen is not unusual. Lawyers involved in real estate disputes are required to approach such disputes with extreme care. City-Yuwa always seeks the best solution, and its lawyers with extensive experience make the utmost effort to resolve such cases.

City-Yuwa represents not only realtors but also many other companies involved in real estate disputes. Lawyers at City-Yuwa with extensive experience provide clients with assistance not only in the areas concerning the sale of real estate, leaseholds, building leases and construction of buildings, but also in resolving disputes concerning a wide range of real estate issues.
