Are you buying a home?
Trying to sell your property?
Don't understand your rights under a real estate contract? Concerned that the other side is trying to pull a fast one?
While a realtor can offer helpful services in some of these matters, there are many legal considerations that you just can't handle without an attorney on your team. Work with a legal professional who can help you meet your goals and ensure you're following all applicable regulations.
What is real estate law?
Real estate law governs how property ownership is obtained and transferred. These regulations and processes apply to the following common areas:
- Buying or selling a home
- Buying or selling a commercial property
- Investing in real estate
- Avoiding or managing a foreclosure
- Mortgages and loans
- Landlord and tenant relations
- Property boundaries
- Property taxes
- Legal uses of land
Florida has its own set of laws for real estate transactions on top of what's required on a local and federal level. Buying or selling a property may seem straightforward, but there are actually many moving parts you need to know about.
Whatever role you are playing in these matters, it's crucial that you understand the laws in your area of Florida. Otherwise, you could be facing penalties, fines, unfair contract terms, or a lengthy legal battle in court.
Why would you need a real estate attorney?
Hiring an attorney is a wise step in real estate transactions. While not always legally required in Florida, it is in many states. Working with a lawyer can help you gain new perspectives, fight for your best interests, and always stay in compliance with local laws.
Real estate lawyers act as your go-to resource for advice and guidance along the way, whatever your role may be in a real estate transaction.
