Some of the most common services we provide as real estate lawyers in Tampa are in the following areas:
Commercial and Retail Closings
We have experience in many commercial transactions, including hotels, mobile home parks, shopping centers, apartments, and offices. The process of closing on a commercial property can be complex, but having an experienced real estate attorney on your side can take a lot of the stress and uncertainty out of the process while ensuring that your interests are being represented and protected. We have also closed hundreds of residential real estate transactions, including single-family homes, condominiums, and townhomes on behalf of individuals and financial institutions.
Real Estate Finance
Our legal team can also represent clients in real estate finance cases, where counseling may be necessary as part of a real estate investment transaction. This is where our experts excel in helping clients with structuring their financing, perfecting their security interests, and maximizing their returns as part of a real estate investment. Let us help you with navigating the complexities of real estate finance while negotiating on your behalf every step of the way.
As part of our real estate finance expertise, we can also assist with common situations, such as loan workouts and restructuring.
Title Insurance and Claims
Our firm’s experienced attorneys serve as authorized agents for Westcor Land Title Insurance Company, Attorney’s Title Fund Services, and Old Republic Title, and have the ability to insure title to almost any real estate transaction.
Sometimes unexpected title issues with real estate can lead to roadblocks or delays in a transaction. With assistance from our real estate lawyers, you can get the expertise you need when it comes to investigating the issue, and finding a resolution. In some cases, that may mean pursuing a title insurance claim with the title insurer. Ultimately, our goal is to help you achieve a resolution of the title issue so that you can close your transaction with confidence.
Foreclosures and Real Estate Lawyer Tampa
Mortgage foreclosures and real estate litigation are a large part of what we do as real estate lawyers in Tampa. Whether commercial or residential, we know the ins and outs of foreclosures and litigation here in Florida. For over 40 years, our real estate lawyers have successfully handled thousands of mortgage foreclosures throughout the state of Florida, and we have the systems in place to handle such cases efficiently and in a cost-effective manner.
If you’re thinking about entering into a lease on a commercial or residential property, it’s a good idea to have an experienced real estate lawyer on your side. Our legal team will be able to review or draft your proposed lease agreement and alert you to any potential issues that may affect you and/or your business down the road. Ultimately, we will work to represent you and help you strike a lease agreement on favorable terms.
In commercial and residential real estate, landlord/tenant disputes sometimes happen. When these disagreements occur, it’s important to have an experienced real estate lawyer in your corner. Our real estate lawyers understand the nuances of tenant/landlord lease agreements and will always work to resolve the dispute outside of the courtroom when possible. However, when an agreement cannot be reached without litigation, we work hard to represent your interests to achieve the best result under the circumstances.
When parties encounter financial difficulties, bankruptcy may be filed as a last resort. Our bankruptcy partner Nicole Noel is highly experienced in assisting creditors through the bankruptcy process. Her services include negotiating workouts and restructuring obligations, navigating the complex statutory proceedings under the various chapters of the Bankruptcy Code, obtaining relief from the automatic bankruptcy stay, defending preferential transfer proceedings, and pursuing fraudulent claims.
Community Association Law
Homeowners and condominium associations have strict by-laws in place that can lead to legal conflict between members and governing boards. Our real estate partners Ron Trybus and David Bakalar have many years of experience in assisting clients related to association disputes. Whether the dispute relates to alleged violations of the covenants and restrictions governing the association, or if the dispute relates to payment of outstanding assessments or fines, our real estate lawyer Tampa can assist in resolving those disputes through negotiation, mediation, or in court.
