Residential and Commercial Closings
After a purchase and sale contract is signed between a buyer and seller, the buyers lender (if there is financing) or the buyer's real estate agent (if this is a cash transaction) will request for title to begin the process. Upon receipt of the title order request, our office will conduct a title search of the public records in Florida to determine if any mortgages, easements, judgments, or liens affect title to the subject property.
We then examine the documents and prepare a title commitment to the buyer and/or lender in preparation for closing. After any and all title issues have been cleared and the parties are ready to close the transaction, our office will proceed to prepare a deed, bill of sale, affidavit, and a closing statement. Thereafter, we will distribute the proceeds in accordance to the closing statement, record the deed and mortgage, and prepare the title policies.
Landlord and Tenant Law
Landlord-tenant law regulates the relationships between renters and property owners, and imposes duties on certain parties. Florida's landlord-tenant law varies in residential and commercial leases. Our office is knowledgeable and experienced in both areas. We can help resolve disputes with a simple letter, or through litigation if that proves unsuccessful.
We can also assist you with lease drafting and negotiations, evictions and security deposit claims. Only a licensed attorney can handle the entire eviction process for you, including all necessary court filings and attendance at court hearings/motions should the matter become contested.
