Along with its sunshine, beaches, and Disneyworld, Florida is best known across the globe for its real estate—and for good reason. The state has one of the largest, most diverse, and most dynamic property markets in the United States, if not the world. That is due in no small part to all the other things that Florida is famous for: whether you are looking for a tropical oasis, an exciting big city, or a quiet place to start a family or retire, Florida has something for everyone.
There is no shortage of diverse properties and locations to consider—from beachfront condos to sprawling estates, urban mixed-used developments to suburban single-family homes, there is something to suit every taste, lifestyle, or opportunity. As one of the nation’s largest and most diversified economies, entrepreneurs and investors can find plenty of options for launching or expanding their business, or for developing a promising income stream.
However, to make the most out of such a dynamic and complex market, you will need a lot more than funds, ambition, and a Realtor: You need the trusted and experienced legal services of the real estate attorneys at Jurado & Associates, P.A. Our South Florida-based firm has intimate knowledge of both the real estate market and the
Why a Real Estate Attorney Matters
Even the simplest and most seemingly straightforward property transaction can be fraught with potential risks, both legal and monetary. Like so many other areas in life, there are several major legal implications when it comes to real estate. Buyers and sellers alike have several obligations they must meet under Florida law, in addition to their duties and responsibilities in the contract.
Speaking of contracts: Many people rely on ready-made forms and template for their transactions, which may be ill-suited for the particularities of a given transaction. Without an experienced set of legal eyes to draft or review a contract for errors and disadvantageous terms, you can end up on the hook for something you had not anticipated.
Then there are the unpredictable elements that can crop up in any transaction: Delays that require amending the closing date of the contract. Disputes over certain obligations that can postpone or even derail the closing. Problems discovered in the title history of the property or in the physical property itself.
And while Florida is very real estate-friendly, there are still local, state, and federal laws that may need to be squared away before you close. Virtually every transaction requires a wide range of complex paperwork you may never have heard from, from the closing statement and warranty deed to lesser known but vital legal documents like an affidavit of seller or nonidentity affidavit.
