Property disputes account for more than 35% of civil litigation cases in India. Most of these cases involve disputes between family members, civil partners or business affiliates. Property disputes include everything from disputes over land and building to claims on vehicles, equipment or any other type of assets. If the contending parties are related, the claimants have the option to resolve the matter through family settlement. This is an agreement between family members where all the members sign up voluntarily to settle the property. It is a good way to resolve the case and avoid protracted court battles.
