Reliable Real Estate Representation
The dedicated team of attorneys at The Weaver Law Firm are ready to get to work on your real estate issues. Our practice focuses on litigation.
We resolve disputes between buyers and real estate agents or brokers, including disputes over agent agreements. We resolve boundary line disputes. We are experienced in resolving a variety of real estate disputes. We overcome challenges. That is what we do.
Representation In All Types Of Real Estate Litigation
We represent real estate agents opposite clients and the Texas Real Estate Commission. Our work also includes the representation of individuals against real estate agents and real estate management companies for breach of fiduciary duty. We have brought verified claims and applications to courts for orders directing payment of judgment from the Real Estate Recovery Trust Account in accordance with Subchapter M, Chapter 1101 of the Texas Occupations Code.
We also handle easements, including utility easements. In real estate transactions, there are often situations in which sellers and developers are sued for allegedly selling real estate property without disclosing easements – even though the purchaser obtained their own survey reports. We work to prevent and resolve these types of disputes.
We also handle situations in which individuals believe that they have oil and gas royalty interests in real property by inheritance but are uncertain as to the extent. Our researchers can conduct title searches and examinations to determine who has the royalty interest.
Our Texas real estate lawyer’s experience in landlord-tenant matters includes representing both landlords and commercial tenants negotiate leases. We assist commercial landlords in situations dealing with tenant breaches or tenant’s failure to pay rent. We help commercial and residential landlords in tenant lockouts and evictions. We help landlords understand their responsibilities as required by the Texas Property Code. Oftentimes, landlords engage in wrongful lockouts of tenants and wrongfully withhold rental deposits. We help them follow the procedures required by the Texas Property Code.
Our real estate law firm also represents clients with zoning, restrictions and land use planning concerns such as seeking amendments or variances to deed restrictions. For example, we can assist clients who want to change the use limitation on residential lots to a commercial lot. We assist clients whose goal is to have their property exempt from certain constraints contained in the restrictions, which limit the use and nature of the real property.

Frequently Asked Real Estate Questions
Real estate investments are highly important. In fact, your real estate purchase doesn’t have to be an investment at all; it can be your home. Regardless, the property comes with complexity, complexity leads to questions, and we want to help you understand a bit more about your situation by giving you answers to these common questions:
What are easements?
Easements mean that there is a part of your property that others can use. Often easements are granted under the law to access the property, such as a person needing to build a driveway over a part of your property to reach theirs. Other times, easements are for commercial use. Easements can cause a great deal of tension between neighbors.
What happens if I need to re-zone my property?
If you need to change the zoning on your property, you will have to closely review the laws of your municipality to find the forms. Filing a variance – the technical term for changing your zone – is a complex process. It may require a hearing in court.
How do I secure commercial financing?
Commercial financing is one of the most complex pieces of purchasing property. Often commercial real estate is extremely expensive, and this may require greater investment from one or more financial institutions. We can help you craft the financing agreements to acquire your targeted property.
How will environmental regulation impact my property?
Local and federal laws all have an impact on your ability to use and enjoy your property. Whether it is a residential use or commercial one, you must be aware of any legal issues. You have many rights, but you must respect the environmental state of things.
