What do our West Palm Beach Florida Real Estate Attorneys do?

Palm Beach County Real Estate AttorneysIn general, our West Palm Beach Real Estate Lawyers advise our clients on a wide range of legal aspects related to real estate and real estate transactions. Typically, this includes the ownership, use, development, investment and financing of real property throughout the State of Florida. Also, our West Palm Beach Real Estate Attorneys aggressively litigate for our clients when disputes arise. 

Commercial Real Estate- This type of real estate is for business or investment use. For our commercial real estate clients, our real estate lawyers work with and represent both businesses and developers in buying, selling, leasing, and developing commercial real property througtout the State of Florida. Our attorneys work closely with banks, hard money lenders and private money lenders, and investors to finance commercial real estate transactions and litigate commercial foreclosures, and other Florida commercial real estate related litigation. Additionally, our office assists our commercial real estate clients with commercial lease preparation and review and commercial evictions for possession and damages.

Residential Real Estate- This type of real estate is property for individual housing. For our residential real estate clients, our real estate attorneys represent buyers and sellers, review and prepare real estate contracts and documents relating to the purchase and sale of homes, including but not limited to title, closing and mortgage documents, and leases. Our attorneys also assist with prosecuting evictions, mobile home park law, and unlawful detainers for possession on behalf of landlords and property owners as well as assisting our real estate clients with escrow deposit disputes, breach of contract, securing loan financing, vigorously representing homeowners against Florida homeowners' associations and Florida condominium associations, and Foreclosure Defense.

Residential Foreclosure Process in Florida In Florida, the foreclosure process begins when the homeowner defaults on one or more terms of their Note and Mortgage (“Loan Documents”).  The most common default is the homeowner failing to make the required mortgage payments due, but a default may also result by the homeowner failing to maintain proper insurance, pay taxes due, or transferring the property without paying off their mortgage in full.  Once there is a default, the foreclosure process begins.

  • Notice of Default Letter – In most circumstances, the homeowner will be served with a Notice of Default Letter from the Bank explaining to the homeowner that they have defaulted on their Loan Documents. Typically, mortgages include an Acceleration clause which allows the Bank to require the homeowner to pay-off the entire balance of their loan if they are in default. Traditionally, the homeowner will be given 30 days to “cure” the alleged default by either bringing their loan up to date or paying off their loan per the Acceleration clause in the mortgage. 

  • The Lawsuit – If the default is not cured within the 30 days, the Bank, through their legal counsel, will initiate formal legal proceedings in court, by filing a foreclosure complaint against the homeowner to foreclose on the property. Next, the homeowner is served with the foreclosure lawsuit and once served, the homeowner has 20 days to respond to the foreclosure lawsuit. If the homeowner fails to respond, the Bank will press the case forward by obtaining a default and subsequent default final judgment of foreclosure. If the homeowner does respond to the foreclosure complaint and actively defends the foreclosure lawsuit, the foreclosure case, if not settled in the interim, will ultimately be disposed of through either a motion for summary final judgment or a foreclosure trial.

  • Judgment & Sale– If the Bank is the prevailing party and is successful in obtaining a Final Judgment of Foreclosure against the homeowner, a sale date will be set. This means that the property will be sold at a public auction. The highest bidder at the auction, (the Bank or a third-party), will be the new owner of the property and a certificate of title indicating same will be issued ten (10) calendar days thereafter. The new owner of the property cannot take possession of an occupied property without a writ of possession. If the property is vacant, the new owner may legally take possession of the property after the certificate of title is issued. If the property is still occupied, a writ of possession may be issued through court action and served by the Sheriff’s Office. The writ of possession requires all remaining occupants to vacate the property within 24 hours of being served.

With foreclosure actions on the rise in Palm Beach County and throughtout South Florida in 2019, homeowners need to be prepared and armed. In the event that you are served with a foreclosure lawsuit, we recommend that you immediately seek competent and qualified West Palm Beach FL Foreclosure Defense Attorneys who are both aggressive and experienced in defending foreclosures.

Please see our 2019 Florida Foreclosure Flow Chart which is a Foreclosure Timeline that generally explains the legal process for a homeowner that is seeking to retain a home in foreclosure.

Landlord Tenant & Evictions Lawyers- When it comes to Landlord Tenant and Evictions, it is recommended that you arm yourself with competent legal counsel that is experienced and knowledgeable with both Florida Statutes Chapter 83 (Florida's Eviction Statute) and the Florida Court System. One wrong move can cost you more time and money in a situation that is already costing you time and money.
