Knowledgeable counselors draft and review real estate contracts
In a real estate transaction, contracts are legally binding agreements made between the buyer and the seller. These agreements specify the terms and conditions of the sale and address inspection details, financing terms, closing costs, warranties, and default terms. Real estate contracts typically feature these components:
- The contract must specify the buyer and seller or parties to the transaction.
- The contract must specify the real property, including both the street address and legal description.
- The contract must specify items included, if any, such as appliances or office equipment.
- The contract must specify the purchase price or a verifiable amount.
- The contract must specify the closing date when the title and funds will be exchanged.
- The contract must be signed by both parties (or an authorized representative for commercial transactions) to be binding, with each party being of legal age and of sound mind
Real estate is often the largest investment a person or business will ever make, so it’s essential you’re represented by a skilled attorney who can help ensure your transaction proceeds as smoothly as possible. We also draft and review landlord-tenant agreements for clients in Central Florida.
Accomplished litigators handle land use and zoning matters
Our attorneys are familiar with the relevant zoning and land use laws in Florida cities and counties. Whether you want to subdivide existing property or need help obtaining a variance to a zoning ordinance, we will advise you on local regulations and assist with all required permits so that you are free to use your land as you wish. Our firm also prepares and negotiates developer agreements and represents clients facing impact fees.
Skilled property advisers handle title disputes
For any property sale to proceed, clear ownership must first be established. A thorough title search is required to ensure the seller is the legal owner and that there are no encumbrances such as liens, judgments or mortgage claims that could derail the transaction. Our firm represents both individuals and businesses in title disputes in Central Florida, including those involving boundary conflicts between owners of adjoining properties.
