Escrow Disputes

Purchase agreements and other various real property transactions involving the sale or lease of real property are customarily handled through escrow in the State of California. Normally, the escrow is a stakes holder for the different actions to be completed by the parties. For instance, someone will have to prepare documents and deeds and someone on the other side of the transaction will have to submit money and / or title insurance. This is so that when all of the actions required by both parties to be performed are completed, the escrow officer can complete the transaction. We have experience in both drafting and preparing escrow instructions. Read More


Insurance Disputes

Many times we have situations where a real property owner or homeowner have problems with insurance companies in connection with what is and what is not covered in regards to some event or tragedy that has occurred. The Ensberg Law Group are capable of reviewing the insurance contracts and policies and determining whether coverage does or does not exist. Normally, an insurance policy has two aspects to it in connection with litigation. The first aspect is the requirement that the insurance company must provide legal defense for its insured concerning any litigation for which the insured is sued. The second aspect is the obligation to provide indemnities, which means to pay for any loss that occurs as a result of a covered event under the policy. We have the ability to review, protect, and carry out both aspects. Read More


Lender / Mortgage Loan Disputes

We are familiar with and handle litigation arising out of such relationships to accomplish the best results for our clients. Our lawyers know how to communicate with lenders, and we represent lenders to achieve a fair and just resolution of any dispute that arises in connection with a mortgage and / or lending context.

Construction Disputes

Ensberg Law Group has handled numerous cases involving construction disputes in connection with both commercial and residential real property. We are familiar with the contractors’ licensing laws and requirements in the State of California, as well as the local land use planning requirements involving the permitting process to help small business owners and homeowners achieve their reasonable expectations in connection with construction taking place on property owned by them. We are familiar with both the regulatory and litigation process involving such construction disputes and how to process the same, most effectively for our clients. Read More


Partition

When various people own a single piece of real property and one of them no longer wishes to be an owner, the resolution of that dispute is a court-ordered sale of the subject property called partition. We are experienced in the resolution of partition issues and disputes. Read More


Quiet Title

This area of our practice relates to real property, both commercial and residential, and involves claims of ownership disputes to which various individuals have claims. The experienced Real Estate Lawyers at Ensberg Law Group have successfully pursued and carried out such real property actions to quiet title, such as confirming title or advancing the position of our clients in connection with their ownership claim to real property through the court process. Read More


Specific Performance / Lis Pendens

Specific Performance relates to a contractual remedy where a buyer wishes to complete the purchase of real property (commercial or residential), and the selling party does not wish to move forward with the transaction. Because real property is considered to be unique, the court will exercise (upon request) its equitable powers to order the sale and completion of the transaction by way of a remedy called specific performance. In connection with that, we will prepare and record a notice of pendency of action, or lis pendens, which is recorded in the office of the county recorder where the action is pending and the property is located. Read More


Contract Disputes

Over the years, we have handled contract disputes involving every type of commercial activity and / or agreements between businesses and individuals and between individuals involving various matters. We have drafted such contracts so as to avoid contractual disputes. However, when a dispute does take place, Ensberg Law Group is capable of handling the issue by identifying the proper items of resolution and achieving a good result. Read More


Fraud / Non-Disclosure

In California transactions involving real property, buyers and sellers have reasonable expectations as to the condition and nature of property to be purchased and / or sold. The seller is required to disclose all aspects of the property of which he or she is reasonably aware; failure to do so may constitute actual constructive fraud. In business transactions, fraud occurs when someone with knowledge and intent specifically misrepresents the nature or action he or she wishes to take to the detriment, damage, and harm of the other party. With fraud and non-disclosure issues involving business transactions, we are familiar with these claims and issues, and can help our clients navigate their way through the real estate process so as to avoid potential fraud and / or non-disclosure claims. Read More


Title Disputes

Title disputes have to do with conflicting ownership claims by individuals or companies involving real property. Title disputes often involve title insurance companies. Ensberg Law Group has experience in litigating and achieving results consistent with our clients’ objectives to quiet title, meaning we confirm their title and real property, whether it is commercial or residential real property. Read More


Homeowners Association Disputes

HOA disputes have to do with people who live in private community settings where there is a homeowners association. Normally, such disputes involve claims by the homeowner that the homeowners association is not adequately carrying out its obligation under the controlling covenants, conditions and restrictions that are recorded and bind all real property within the association. We have also represented HOAs in connection with claims against individual homeowners alleging that the property owner is not conducting themselves in the maintenance and possession of their property in a manner consistent with the contractual obligations under the controlling documents.

5 star ratingI found Stephen Ensberg office on yelp when searching for a lawyer who specialized in business.  He helped me to interpret a buyout offer for my shares of a business.  I thought I was pretty smart as a business professional and had seen plenty of legal paperwork in my line of business but this particular agreement seemed like it was written in a different language.  Mr. Ensberg was able to explain it to me in words I could understand and he also found it to be very one sided and not in my best interest to sign.  He wrote me a letter to present to my business partners and we are currently working on a new agreement.  Without his recommendation I could have gotten myself into problems down the line.  He answered all of my questions personally via email and over the phone which I really appreciated.  I hope to not need his services in the future but if I do I'll be heading straight to his office!

5 star ratingI found myself in a less than ideal situation with the management company of my apartment building. I did not know my rights as a tenant let alone what to do in this circumstance. I was completely lost. Larsen Ensberg was recommended to me and I cannot say more positive things about my experience with him. From my first conversation with him my anxiety regarding the entire situation was put to ease. He was extremely thorough, always responded quickly and explained any questions I had in great detail. Because of his attentiveness and knowledge in this area of the law I went from feeling afraid to empowered. So grateful I was pointed in this direction. Thank you so much Larsen & Law Office's of Stephen Ensberg!
