Real estate is an essential part of the Florida economy. Whether you are a large developer or simply buying a home, you need real estate counsel. The Orlando Law Group’s attorneys handle virtually all aspects of real estate. We represent individuals by reviewing their leases as well as contracts. We also represent developers, contractors, lenders, and owners of commercial properties.
Why Hire a Florida Real Estate Attorney?
To start, why should you hire a real estate attorney? There are countless reasons why one might want to hire an attorney, but here are a few of the most common. First, hiring an attorney to handle your real estate matter will ultimately save you time and money. A real estate attorney will safeguard you, your clients and their investment by thoroughly reviewing all legal documentation, handling negotiations keeping you and your clients informed throughout the process and asking the questions you may not know to ask. Hiring a real estate attorney can also give you clarity and peace of mind throughout the transaction. Hiring an attorney to review all agreements and contracts and assist in negotiations will ensure the maximum level of transparency and comfort for your clients and can also grant you the peace of mind that your transaction is legally sound and has been reviewed thoroughly by a professional.
A real estate attorney also has valuable experience and knowledge from working in the field that simply cannot be recreated. Our attorneys have the institutional knowledge of working daily in the industry and have their fingers on the pulse of the local and state laws. Especially for those of you with unique real estate situations, it’s important to have the legal support to mitigate any risks that could delay, if not jeopardize, your real estate purchase. Lastly, hiring a real estate attorney can also expedite the process of your transaction significantly. Hiring a Florida real estate attorney not only serves to protect each party’s interests but also expedites the entire process and helps to streamline the contract negotiation, the closing process, securing title insurance and communicating with lenders.
The Importance of Prevention in Real Estate Law and for Real Estate Agents
Often, we turn to lawyers as a last resort – after the contract has been signed, or when a dispute is already out of control. However, good legal advice is one of the greatest preventative measures a lawyer can provide. Not only can it save you money in the long run, but it can also save you from unpleasant difficulties later.
At The Orlando Law Group, you can be sure that your attorney possesses both a sharp, experienced legal mind, and a friendly smile that will welcome and comfort you. What’s more, we are serious about preventative legal tactics, working to solve issues for our clients before they blow up into legal messes. Simply put, we are here for you, and we have your back at all times!
A successful Florida residential real estate transaction is more than mere document preparation. Buyers and sellers alike may encounter any number of hiccups including, but most definitely not limited to, disclosures, financing, findings as a result of property inspections, dealing with property owner association requirements and title insurance.
As a real estate agent, it is wise to have a go-to Florida real estate attorney to ensure that you and your clients are protected and are properly informed when making pertinent decisions. While conducting a residential real estate transaction in Florida, only an attorney can provide legal guidance and advice that is truly in your best interest.
Legal Connections in Real Estate – Why Hire a Full-Service Firm?
- Diverse Clientele: Our firm provides legal assistance to a wide variety of clients with different needs and preferences, meaning our team is well-equipped to handle the specificities of your situation.
- Multiple Perspectives: If your attorney needs an objective perspective from a different legal professional, they can get that from within the firm. You can’t get that kind of flexibility from a boutique lawyer, who would have to hire another attorney for a second opinion.
- One-Stop-Shop: At The Orlando Law Group, we work as a team in all endeavors. With each attorney having experience in a multitude of fields, we can provide a comprehensive solution for our clients.
- Flexibility and Creativity: As a full-service firm, each member of our team has a diverse skillset and base of knowledge. With these assets, we are able to navigate through each case with flexibility and provide creative solutions for our clients.
- Adaptability: Like many industries, the legal world is subject to change and improvement over time. New laws are created, and we are responsible for understanding the fine details on how they affect our clients. What makes us successful is our ability to learn these new laws and understand how they apply to current and future clients.
A legal challenge can easily stretch across multiple practice areas. Real Estate Law, for example, can stretch into business law, family law, and estate planning quite easily. As a full-service firm, we are well-equipped to tackle any legal challenge involving real estate, regardless of how many other disciplines the challenge involves. We offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of the Florida real estate community, whether it be for residential or commercial real estate. Here are a few examples of some connections real estate law can have with other areas of law:
- Family Law: A divorce or separation can often involve complex real estate transactions or the division of assets, including property.
- Probate Law: When a person passes away, you may find yourself in a situation where the deceased person owns a piece of property and the heirs of that person want to sell it, but probate must be administrated prior to this occurring.
- Business Law: Business law can easily relate to real estate law when commercial property transactions are involved, or a business is buying or selling a property.
- Civil Litigation: In some situations, disputes cannot be fully solved through negotiation and may require complex civil litigation to address.
