Real Estate Litigation

Jacksonville, Florida is the largest city by area in the contiguous United States. Known for its 22 miles of beaches, extensive park system, world-class fishing, historic neighborhoods, bustling arts scene, creative coastal cuisine, delicious craft beer, and vibrant nightlife, it comes as no surprise that so many people choose to live, work and invest in Jacksonville, and as a result, find themselves buying residential and commercial real estate there. However, the purchase and sale of real estate can sometimes be a complicated matter in which buyers and sellers alike are best served by hiring an attorney to guide them through the process.

Navigating the Jacksonville real estate market can be an exciting and rewarding experience. It can also be stressful and overwhelming. From listing to closing, unexpected issues that can “kill the deal” will sometimes arise. Consequently, the parties involved in the real estate transaction will often have attorneys representing their legal and financial interests. It is important to have a real estate attorney provide these same protections for you.

Whether you’re a property owner, home buyer, home seller, or investor, there are a myriad of potential problems that can arise in connection with purchasing and owning real estate, including undesired easements; unknown covenants, restrictions, and rules; boundary disputes, title disputes, liens, unpaid taxes and other title problems. As an investor, you may confront tenant problems, that if not handled properly, can result in substantial financial loss. As a Jacksonville real estate lawyer, I work to prevent these and other common real estate concerns from becoming major problems.
