Real Estate Services

  • Drafting/Reviewing Earnest Money Contracts: The initial step in property transactions involves a contract accompanied by an earnest money deposit, signaling the buyer's commitment. Our role includes drafting or reviewing these contracts to ensure they reflect fair terms and protect your interests. A proper contract should specify the amount of earnest money, conditions under which it may be forfeited, and other aspects that safeguard your stake in the transaction.
  • Loan and Closing Documents: These documents finalize the terms and conditions of property sales. We meticulously review loan agreements, closing disclosures, and other related documents, ensuring they are legally compliant and made in good faith. Our expertise helps you understand the long-term financial implications, including mortgage terms, interest rates, and repayment obligations.
  • Deeds and Easements: Our team can assist in drafting clear and legally binding deeds, transferring property ownership, and establishing easements that grant rights to use portions of property. As these documents are critical for preventing future disputes, getting them right the first time should be a top priority.
  • Title Disputes: We handle suits to remove clouds on title and quiet title actions, resolving disputes regarding property ownership. These legal actions clear ambiguities or claims against a property's title and give you peace of mind regarding the status of your property ownership.
  • Lease Agreements and Disputes: Our services encompass both residential and commercial lease agreements. We draft, review, and negotiate lease terms while keeping them fair and compliant with Florida laws. In disputes, we provide robust representation, whether it involves lease violations, rent issues, or property maintenance concerns, aiming for resolutions that protect your rights, interests, and investments.
  • Evictions: In cases where eviction is necessary, we guide clients through each step of the eviction process – everything from drafting and serving eviction notices, representing clients in court, and handling post-judgment proceedings. Our approach is to resolve these matters efficiently and allow you to continue using your property how you see fit.

Key Real Estate Terms Explained

While our attorneys will work with you every step of the way, it is still important to stay ahead of the curve and educate yourself on some of the terms you will hear when dealing with property disputes and negotiations.

  • Escrow: In real estate transactions, escrow refers to a neutral third party that takes control of funds and assets, holding onto them until specific conditions are met. During a property sale, escrow ensures that the buyer's deposit and the seller's property are secure while all the transactional details are finalized. Through escrow holdings, both parties can move forward with greater confidence, as no funds or property change hands until all terms of the agreement are met and the transaction is ready to close.
  • Lien: Liens are typically financial legal claims levied against a property, usually due to a debt or missed obligation. The most common reason for liens is unpaid debts, like mortgages, contractor fees, or taxes. Before a property owner can legally sell a property, they must rectify any current liens, as they hinder a clear title transfer to a new owner.
  • Encumbrance: An encumbrance can be thought of as a broader term that encompasses liens as well as other types of restrictions on a property. Mortgages, leases, easements, or restrictions on property use all qualify as encumbrances despite not all being related to finances or unpaid debts.
  • Due Diligence: Due diligence in real estate involves a comprehensive property appraisal before finalizing a transaction. Legal title reviews, property inspections, and environmental assessments are all common before a sale in order for a buyer to have complete confidence in their purchase and protect themselves from unexpected expenses in the future.

Why Legal Assistance Is So Critical for Florida Real Estate Transactions

Attorneys – regardless of the type of law they practice – will typically recommend hiring an attorney for everything beyond the most basic situations relevant to their area of expertise. However, real estate is a whole other beast, and when this much money is on the line, you should not go forward with any transaction until you fully understand the deal through the assistance of an attorney. In addition to the large monetary amounts, real estate transactions necessitate legal assistance for the following reasons:

  • Complex Laws and Regulations: Real estate deals are rarely simple, and the expertise of an experienced attorney is crucial in avoiding pitfalls that can result in costly delays, fines, or litigation. Legal assistance provides peace of mind that all aspects of a real estate transaction, from zoning laws to land use restrictions, are properly addressed.
  • Contract Drafting and Review: Real estate transactions involve intricate contracts that require precise language and thorough understanding. Legal professionals draft, review, and negotiate these contracts daily, allowing them to gain vast amounts of experience and apply this knowledge to your contracts as well. Ideally, attorneys should make sure that contracts are fair, clear, and legally binding, addressing potential issues like property boundaries, easements, and contingencies.
  • Handling Disputes and Litigation: Real estate disputes can arise over anything -property lines, defects, breaches of contract, you name it. Working with an attorney through negotiation, mediation, or litigation is often your best option for a quick and easy resolution to all unexpected disputes. An attorney can represent your interests effectively, advocating for your rights and seeking resolutions that align with your objectives.
