Florida Real Estate Lawyers: Representation When It Matters Most

Real estate transactions are contract negotiations between individuals or businesses for buying, selling, and leasing of property. These transactions can be simple or complex. The role of a real estate attorney is to prepare and review real estate contracts and documents to ensure they comply with legal requirements. In addition, they should ensure that all parties fully understand their rights and responsibilities. Real estate lawyers identify potential issues and advise clients on their options. Understanding and negotiating real estate contracts are necessary to protect all parties involved.

Trusted Advisors with Innovative Solutions

Florida is a competitive and growing real estate market. It is essential to have sound legal representation for the acquisition and sale of properties and to resolve any disputes that may arise. At Mapp & Parker, P.A., our attorneys are competent, experienced professionals in residential and commercial real estate law. We represent clients in property purchases and sales, partition actions, evictions, and other breaches of contract matters. We understand that real estate transactions can be stressful for the parties involved, and we are here to fight for your best interests.

Partition Actions

A partition action is a legal proceeding in which co-owners of property seek to divide the property and sell it or divide its usage and profits. This process is necessary when co-owners no longer wish to continue owning property together or when there is a dispute over how the property should be used or managed.

Examples where a partition action may be necessary include when co-owners disagree on whether to sell the property or when one co-owner wants to develop the property while the others wish to continue using it for agricultural purposes. Another example may be when co-owners cannot agree on necessary repairs or improvements to the property or when one co-owner is not paying their share of property expenses. 

Evictions

 In Florida, an eviction is appropriate in cases where a tenant is not fulfilling their obligations under the lease agreement, such as failure to pay rent or violating the lease terms. The process for eviction in Florida includes serving the tenant with a notice to vacate, filing a complaint in court, and obtaining a judgment for possession of the property. It is essential to have an attorney review and handle the eviction process to ensure that it is done correctly and in accordance with Florida laws.

Other Examples When Legal Counsel is Needed:

  • Legal claims are made against your property
  • Zoning and boundary issues
  • Leasing residential or commercial property
  • Easement issues
  • Unethical real estate agents
  • Restrictions or covenants that affect the sale or lease of a property
  • Adverse possession
  • Landlord-tenant disputes
  • Title searches and surveys
  • Unit owner and condominium association disputes
  • The purchase or sale of a residence or business in probate, foreclosure, or short sale
