REAL ESTATE LAWYERS PRACTICE AREAS
REAL ESTATE CLOSINGS AND TITLE INSURANCE
When you hire an experienced Real Estate Lawyer to handle closing your commercial or residential real estate transaction you get benefits that are not available to those using non-attorney title companies. The largest benefit is that if there is a problem with the target property, a lawyer has the tools and knowledge to fix that problem and cure title defects. Non-attorney title companies are not going to be able to cure most title defects and you will have to retain an attorney to remedy the defect before returning to close your deal which often results in significant delays or even losing the deal. Many times an attorney will be able to cure the defect and close on the scheduled closing date. For typical title defects, our real estate lawyers do not charge an additional fee to cure title. We view this added service as fulfilling our promise to provide the best possible service to our clients.
COMMERCIAL LENDING AND SECURED TRANSACTIONS
Our office is experienced in representing commercial lenders or hard-money lenders secured by Commercial Real Estate. Our real estate lawyers assist lenders in completing due diligence, securing the loan with the first mortgage on commercial real property, and procuring a title insurance policy with limited exceptions. We also have the interpersonal skills necessary to explain the nature of each transaction to both the lender and the borrower. Our real estate lawyers understand that each transaction is unique and we approach each transaction with careful attention to detail to ensure that our clients receive the soundest legal representation.
DEVELOPER RELATED MATTERS
Our office represents real estate developers on a wide array of projects including:
Purchase and Sale Agreement
Drafting Condominium Documents
Other community-related issues
Our firm has assisted developers in some of the most successful projects on the West Coast of Florida. No matter how small or large the scope of the project may be, our real estate attorneys treat each project with meticulous care to ensure that our clients are protected.
NEGOTIATING REAL ESTATE CONTRACTS
Our real estate attorneys are experienced and skilled in assisting buyer and seller of commercial and residential real estate with their contract negotiations. We understand that each deal begins with the negotiation of the contract and we have the ability to explain the pros and cons of each integral detail of the contract. Whether clients are using standard FAR-BAR real estate contracts or we are drafting a tailor-made agreement each provision must be carefully considered in light of the nature of the transaction.
DRAFTING AND NEGOTIATING LEASES
Far too often, landlords and tenants mistakenly assume that the lease they have been provided is adequate. A leasehold interest in a property is a legal right to occupy and use real estate subject to the terms of the lease. Our experienced real estate lawyers can help negotiate and review leases for landlords and for tenants.
Lease terms may be long, and hard to understand. Therefore, it is important to consider all the challenges and problems that may occur in the distant future. A.K. Esquire is here to worry about this for you!
INVESTOR DUE DILIGENCE
Our real estate lawyers are experienced in assisting real estate developers to conduct due diligence on a prospective acquisition. Often times, investors need due diligence completed on short notice, perhaps because the target property is being sold at a public auction.
Investors should be extremely cautious when purchasing a property at auction and they need to review and understand what liens may be on the property, what mortgages are not satisfied, and what other encumbrances could surface in the future. Our real estate lawyers have the ability to pull a full title report on a target property and review the relevant history to understand what potential problems may exist. After we have investigated the target property, investors can purchase with peace of mind.
Florida Foreclosure law is extremely confusing and complex. Our experienced real estate lawyers can assist both lenders and borrowers with the foreclosure process to accomplish their individual objectives. From a borrower perspective, we will review every aspect of the loan to ensure that the lender has complied with all of its obligations. Our borrowers also receive the added benefit of staying in their home while we fight on your behalf. When representing lenders, we aggressively pursue the case to real the most expedient and efficient resolution possible.
Our real estate lawyers are incredibly knowledgeable about Florida landlord-tenant law and are experienced in assisting both landlords and tenants with achieving their legal objectives. Florida law is very unforgiving for tenants who do not pay their rent and our real estate attorneys will ensure that landlords are able to retake possession of their property quickly from a non-paying tenant.
