  1. Foreclosure Defense Representation

A.  Foreclosure Defense. Our office has successfully defended Homeowners in Foreclosure.  Our goal is to provide an aggressive defense against the Bank.  In addition, we help Homeowners keep their property.

B. Loss Mitigation. A Real Estate Lawyer helps Homeowners apply for a loan modification. If the modification is approved, the Homeowner receives a new mortgage.

C. Short Sales. A Real Estate Lawyer facilitates the Short Sale Process. For example, we negotiate on behalf of the Homeowner with the Bank. Above all, we try to protect the Homeowner from a Deficiency Judgment. A Deficiency Judgment is the difference between the amount the Homeowner owes from the amount the property sells for at the Foreclosure Sale.  Therefore, if you owe more than your house is worth, contact our office at (954) 990-7552.

    2.  Representing Buyers and Sellers

A. Buyer Representation.  A Real Estate Lawyer should always represent a Buyer. Representation includes reviewing the title commitment, lien search, and closing documents.  In addition, we make sure that the Buyer complies with all deadlines.

B. Seller Representation.   A Real Estate Lawyer should always represent a Seller.  If the Title Company finds liens, a Real Estate Lawyer helps negotiate and remove the liens.  As a result, the property is sold with clear title.

     3.   Representation of Landlords and Tenants

A. Landlords. A Real Estate Lawyer should have experience with Evictions. This includes Evictions for non-payment of rent and violations of the lease. In addition, a Real Estate Attorney should complete the Eviction without delays.
B. Tenants. Most Real Estate Attorneys do not represent Tenants.  This is because the laws favor Landlords.  However, Tenants do have rights.  Therefore, upon being served, a Real Estate Lawyer should file an Answer or a Motion to Determine Rent.

       4.     Partition Action

Some properties have more than one owner.  As a result, disputes arise.   For example, one owner wants to sell the property while the other owner wants to rent it.  When this occurs,  a Florida Partition Action is filed.  Thereafter, the Court determines if the property should be sold.  On the other hand, the Court may order that the property is distributed among each owner.

       5.    Representing Buyers and Sellers in Escrow Disputes

Buyers often breach Real Estate Contracts. As a result, the Seller may refuse to sign a release of the Deposit.  When this happens, an Escrow Dispute occurs.   Therefore, whether you are a Buyer or Seller, a Real Estate Lawyer can represent you during an Escrow Dispute.

       6.     Deerfield Beach FL Unlawful Detainer Representation

An Unlawful Detainer is filed to remove a person that does not pay rent or have a lease.  Unlike an Eviction, an Unlawful Detainer does not require giving notice.

        7.     Quiet Title Action

A Quiet title Action is filed to clear liens or judgments.  In addition, it determines the true owner of the property.  For example, a person that becomes the owner of a property at a Tax Deed Sale may find others that have an interest in the property.  As a result, a Court decides if they are the rightful owner.

        8.    For Sale By Owner (FSBO) in Deerfield Beach

Some Homeowners sell their homes without a Realtor. Instead they hire a Real Estate Lawyer.  The advantage of a Real Estate Lawyer is that you have a qualified legal professional guiding you.  In addition, a Real Estate Lawyer reviews the title commitment, lien search, and prepares all closing documents.
