How your Real Estate Lawyer in Margate can Represent You
- Representing Buyers and Sellers
A. Buyer Representation. When purchasing a property, a Buyer should be represented by a Real Estate Lawyer. The advantage of Hiring a Real Estate Lawyer is that we establish direct contact with the Title Company. In addition, a Real Estate Lawyer inspects the lien search, title commitment, and closing documents that the Buyer signs.
B. Seller Representation. A Real Estate Lawyer helps the Seller clear any liens prior to closing. As a result, the Seller can deliver clear title. In other words, title will be free of any liens. In addition, a Real Estate Lawyer prepares the documents that the Seller signs at closing.
2. Foreclosure Defense (Residential and Commercial)
A. Foreclosure Defense. A Bank files a Foreclosure Lawsuit if a Homeowner has not paid their mortgage. As a result, the Homeowner has 20 days to respond to the Lawsuit. Accordingly, a Real Estate Attorney will represent you and protect your rights against a Bank. In addition, a Real Estate Lawyer will try to help you keep your property or sell your property.
B. Loss Mitigation. A Real Estate Lawyer helps Homeowners try to qualify for a Loan Modification. If the Homeowner qualifies, they will receive a new mortgage.
C. Short Sales. A short sale occurs in Florida when a Homeowner owes more on their mortgage than their property is worth. After the property is listed for sale, the Homeowner receives an offer. After receiving an offer, the Homeowner submits it to the Bank. If the offer is approved, the Foreclosure is dismissed.
A Seller must convey Marketable Title when selling their home. In other words, the property must be free and clear of any liens. Often times, more than one individual claims ownership in a property. As a result, a Quiet Title Action occurs. If you are successful in your Quiet Title Action, you will be given sole ownership of the property.
4. Representation of Landlords and Tenants
A. Landlords. A Real Estate Lawyer files Evictions against Tenants that do not pay rent. In addition, we help Landlords keep the Security Deposit and send notices to Tenants. Therefore, if you are a Landlord in Margate, contact our office today.
B. Tenants. A Real Estate Lawyer represents Tenants against Evictions. While Florida Law generally favors Landlords, our office can help Tenants stay in the property. In addition, we help Tenants recover their Security Deposit.
In Broward County, some properties are owned by more than one person. Unfortunately, disputes occur between the owners regarding the property or if the property should be sold. By filing a Partition Action, the Court determines if the property should be sold or divided among the owners. As a result, the case will be resolved.
A Real Estate Lawyer can help you with an Unlawful Detainer. An Unlawful Detainer is filed by a Homeowner to remove a person that lives in their home. In addition, this person does not pay rent and does not have a lease.
A Real Estate Contract requires a Buyer to meet certain deadlines. If the Buyer does not meet these deadlines, the Seller is not required to return the Escrow Deposit to the Buyer. As a result, an Escrow Dispute occurs. If you are involved in an Escrow Dispute, contact our office today.
