The real estate domain was, and still is, one of the most significant domains in the Legal and Judicial System, yet it is also full of disputes and legal conflicts. The main reason for this situation is that in addition to the “big money” common to this domain, there are also complex and weighty considerations regarding the interpretation of clauses in the real estate contacts – rental leases or property sales contracts. Additionally, complex questions arise as to the behavior and conduct of the parties in a negotiation process towards entering into agreements and denial of written and signed contracts, for various reasons.
On other occasions, disagreements occur regarding the existence or breach of realty contracts. Specifically as to the amount, dates and methods of various payments within a contract, or in regards to issues dealing with the existence (or breach) of other conditions, as they may be stipulated in these agreements. These issues are regularly submitted to the Courts pending their decisions and verdicts.
Cases that deal with possession and use are submitted to the Magistrates Courts, while cases dealing with the ownership of land and real estate are submitted to the District Courts. Financial suits in the real estate domain are generally submitted to the appropriate Court, depending on the value of requested remedies. If the requested remedy is up to NIS 2.5 million, the suit is submitted to the District Court.
