Only licensed attorneys can provide legal advice. This is important in complex transactions involving probate, Trusts, LLCs or corporations. Other issues like homestead, easements, encroachments, homeowners’ and condominium association regulations and disputes, improper chains of title and buyer-seller disputes often require representation by an attorney. Additionally, it may save you money, as most closing costs including title insurance premiums, documentary stamps and recording costs are set by the State of Florida. Having the ability to address potential legal issues quickly can result in avoiding costly delays. Hiring an attorney before the contract is even signed can help eliminate or mitigate any unnecessary complications and expense further along in the transaction. Speak with any attorney when considering the purchase or sale of real estate.
