Confirming and Enforcing An Arbitration Award

Recently, Schorr Law obtained an arbitration award in favor of its clients in connection with a residential real estate dispute. Today’s blog post is about what a prevailing party should do following issuance of an arbitration award so that the arbitration award can be enforced like a judgment.

Schorr Law Obtains Quiet Title and $100,000+ Judgment Against National Bank

This past fall Schorr Law was successful in obtaining a quiet title to a property in Ventura County.  Schorr Law sued on behalf of its client to remove a lien on a Ventura County property that its client contended was invalid.  Our real estate attorneys were successful removing the lien and also obtaining a judgment against the bank for over $100,000 based on its maintenance of an invalid lien. Quieting title to real property is a common remedy our real estate attorneys use to remove liens from real property that are invalid.  These liens must be removed because whether or not the liens are valid in the eyes of the law is not always the most important factor.  Instead, making sure that liens do not show up
