Assisting In The Sale And Purchase Of Commercial And Residential Property

Purchasing residential or commercial property is a big financial decision in any person’s life. For most, it represents the most money ever spent on one thing. This can be a complicated process, so it’s important to have sound legal advice when you’re taking this major step. At Lyons, Beaudry & Harrison, P.A., our Sarasota County real estate attorney helps you through all stages of the process, making sure that you get a fair deal and advantageous terms. You can rely on our legal team and our attorney’s decades of experience in this area of the law.

For residential transactions, we are typically compensated by the title insurance company when we handle a closing. For this reason, we can typically handle all aspects of a closing at the same cost as a title insurance company.

Representation Of Commercial And Residential Sellers And Purchasers

Residential and commercial real estate buyers have many of the same needs. You need to negotiate and sign loans, clear titles and negotiate with the seller to reach agreeable terms. Working with a skilled Sarasota attorney means that all your documents are properly reviewed, ensuring that you get what you need out of this important process.

Our firm assists with many areas of a real estate purchase, including:

  • Sales contract: We help draft and review the sales contract to ensure that you get terms that work for you.
  • Lending documents: Most people need to borrow money to buy property. A lawyer should review your lending documents and ensure that the terms are favorable. This is especially important in commercial real estate, where purchases can be in the millions of dollars.
  • Title insurance: We can issue title insurance at promulgated (approved) rates established by the state of Florida.
  • Real estate closings: We can handle all aspects of the transaction and work with you from the approval of the sales contract through the closing of the transaction.
  • Land use, zoning and permitting: You may have found the perfect place for your business, but you now realize that it is not zoned or permitted properly. In these cases, you must ensure that you comply with state and local laws.

Representing Your Interests In Real Estate Litigation

The ownership of real property is a substantial investment. When you own it, you want to protect it. When you buy it, you want to make sure that you made a good investment. When you sell it, you do not want the buyer to make future claims against you.

Unfortunately, property disputes arise all the time. Many of these disputes involve the buyer and seller of real property relating to the failure to disclose facts that materially affect the value of the property in the purchase and sale of the real estate, the interpretation of the real estate contract, deposits and the specific enforcement of the real estate contract. Other disputes involve third parties or neighbors, including boundary disputes, easements, adverse possession, prescriptive rights, construction, mechanic and other liens, ownership and other title-related issues. Currently, the most prevalent real estate dispute relates to mortgage foreclosures and mortgage foreclosure defense.

At Lyons, Beaudry & Harrison, P.A., our real estate litigation attorney has decades of experience in all aspects of real estate disputes and the skill and knowledge necessary to provide the most effective representation of your interests in this area of the law.
