Common Litigation Issues in San Antonio Commercial Property Disputes

Many issues that may lead to commercial lease disputes, like rent increases or disagreements over maintenance responsibilities, can be handled without a third party involved. San Antonio business owners and their landlords or leasing agencies can often resolve these issues with each other through meaningful discussion. However, when discussions cease to be amicable or fail to achieve their intended outcome, it can be necessary to hire a lawyer to begin litigation.

The Texas Judicial Branch’s Annual Statistical Report found an almost one-third decrease in landlord/tenant cases from 2019 to 2021, which was affected by many pandemic-related factors. There were eviction restrictions and several rental assistance programs that can be attributed to the decline. Despite this, lease disputes still made up 30% of new civil cases in Texas in 2021.

With fewer protections for tenants, Texans can expect to see the number of property disputes continue in a post-pandemic world. Commercial lessees without in-house representation should know that the most experienced property dispute lawyers in Texas can be found at Carabin Shaw. We’ve been helping Texans work out complex and contentious property issues for decades.

Texas Commercial Property Dispute Remedies

Litigation isn’t the only path to resolving commercial property disputes; mediation and arbitration are also possible ways forward. Arbitration may be required in the commercial lease agreement, so tenants should review all relevant documents with an experienced commercial property lawyer before proceeding.

Depending on the situation, different remedies are available in commercial real estate disputes. For landlords, this might be in the form of a lease termination, eviction, or lawsuit for damages that can’t be covered with a tenant’s security deposit.

For tenants, possible remedies might look like a lawsuit for damages, a reformation of the lease contract, a tenant cancellation of the lease (called rescission), or constructive eviction, which defends a tenant’s non-payment of their rent.
