Legal assistance for Florida real estate transactions

One of the largest purchases that a Floridian will make in his or her life is for real estate. These transactions can be intimidating, frustrating, worrisome and confusing. To avoid the litany of issues that inevitably arise during a real estate transaction - or at least mitigate them - it is vital to have legal assistance from an experienced real estate attorney.

Couple might lose $458K after botched real estate transaction

Florida real estate can be a lucrative investment whether it is to be in business for oneself or just to own a property and reside there. However, there are often traps that many people fall into and can be avoided if they are protected by a legal professional experienced in real estate law. Regardless of the type of real estate transaction it is, there is always the potential for unforeseen problems. Such was the case for a couple who purchased a property and later found out that there were unknown issues with the previous property owner and the sale.

Navigating the complexities of real estate law

Everyone in Florida who is involved in a real estate transaction in any capacity must make certain that all the laws are adhered to and proper procedures are followed. This is true for anyone whether it is a home purchase, a commercial property, a vacation property or any other venture into real estate. Since purchasing a property is one of the biggest financial commitments that can be made, making a mistake can have far-reaching consequences that can last a lifetime and negatively influence every area of a person's life.

How can I legally transfer my property to someone else?

It may seem like it is easy to transfer ownership of your home or office to someone else. However, the field of business law has specific requirements that you need to follow in order to transfer property legally. The act of transferring property in Florida to someone new is called conveyance. Your attorney will need to draft and record the appropriate deeds before the transfer becomes official.

Foreclosure rates in Florida on the decline

When a family falls behind on their mortgage payment, they fear that they may lose their home through foreclosure. Unfortunately, foreclosure has become a reality for many Florida families. In the 12 months leading up to November 2016, Florida had the highest number of completed foreclosures in the U.S. with just fewer than 49,000, or 12 percent of the U.S. total. Real estate law attorneys can suggest alternatives to foreclosure, but that is not always an option.

Purchasing property can impact the lives of Florida residents

One of the biggest purchases a person will make in life is a new property. Whether it be your first home or a new office for your latest business venture, leasing or buying property requires an in-depth knowledge of complicated real estate law as well as the process involved.

Avoid these mistakes when buying a short-sale home

A short-sale in Florida occurs when a lender permits the homeowner to sell their home for less than the amount they owe. Short-sales are typically reserved for those struggling financially who need a way to avoid foreclosure. Many people rush to buy a short-sale or foreclosure home, thinking that they are getting the deal of a lifetime. However, those in real estate law know that this is not necessarily the case. Many short-sale homes require extensive renovations, which can cost buyers an arm and a leg.
