The construction boom is evident all over South Florida. You can’t drive around any community without seeing For Sale or For Rent signs posted. Miami Beach, Brickell, Wynwood, and Doral are all exploding with construction and growth. For all the construction and development, there were legal transactions, whether it was the sale or lease of land or the purchase or lease of buildings or homes.
While most people think real estate law only applies to buying and selling property, there are many other aspects of real estate law, such as handling deeds, titles, purchase financing, zoning, taxes, and estate planning are all part of real estate law.
Home and Property Ownership
Whether you’re buying or selling your home, it’s reassuring to have an attorney who knows the ins and outs of the law. An attorney can help you negotiate mortgage and equity loans; understand mortgage borrowers’ rights, and help you avoid predatory lending nightmares.
If you own a home or piece of property, having an expert guide you through the legality of properly insuring your property, determining property tax rates, and tax exemptions and deductions is invaluable.
Condos and Timeshares
Nizahon-Wright Law can help guide you with condominium, which is different than buying a single- family house. When purchasing a condominium, there is the financial condition of the property, whether or not there are pending lawsuits, bylaws, and restrictions, and much more to take into consideration.
If you’re thinking about buying a timeshare, there are other factors to consider such as: investment potential, the actual total costs, and foreign property laws (for those timeshares and vacation clubs who maintain properties in other countries). Remember, international properties are not protected under U.S. law.
If you’re facing foreclosure, our firm can help you navigate the foreclosure process, avoid foreclosures scams, and may be able to help you avoid foreclosure.
If you are a landlord, having a well-drafted rental or lease agreement may avoid unnecessary litigation in the future. Proper legal guidance can help prevent tenant issues that arise, such as when a tenant sub-leases the property. Our attorneys can also address what actions can be taken if a tenant breaks the lease, or how to terminate a lease.
If you are a tenant, you have rights as well. Our experienced attorneys can help you in your landlord- tenant dispute, help you with evictions, and help you with illegal retaliatory eviction because you merely stood up for your rights.
We know that hiring an attorney can be a difficult enough decision to make. The attorneys at Nizahon-Wright Law Firm have the experience to guide you through your next real estate transaction.
