What are your fees for title and closing services?
Title insurance is state regulated and is based on the purchase price. But settlement fees can range from $350 to $750 or more depending on the size and complexity of the transaction. Other closing costs include taxes on the deed, which are calculated based on the purchase price, recording fees, and, if applicable, real estate commissions and unpaid taxes.
What kind of real estate legal services do you provide?
We review your purchase and sale contract, any loan documents, and negotiations, if necessary, and close the transaction using our own title company. We can also help you with landlord/tenant issues, HOA issues, and lien or title problems.
How can you help me with estate planning for my family?
We will sit down and discuss your goals and develop an estate plan, which would include a will, a living trust, if necessary, durable powers of attorney, a health care surrogate designation, and a living will. Let’s talk.
Can you help me protect my business during a divorce?
Yes. Divorce can be difficult for business owners, as the business may be considered marital property and subject to division in the divorce. Especially if you don’t have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, it’s important to consult with us to develop a strategy to protect your business during the divorce process.
How can I ensure that my business is in compliance with all relevant laws and regulations?
We have a thorough auditing process (a check-up)to ensure your small business complies with all relevant laws and regulations, including the Fair Labor Standards Act (minimum wages and overtime pay), the discrimination statutes, the Family Medical Leave Act, and more. Contact us to begin your check-up.
How can you help me resolve a dispute with my home insurance company?
First, we will help you understand your legal rights and options. We will review your insurance policy and determine if your claim is covered under the policy terms as it is written. If it’s covered, we will help you negotiate compensation. If your claim is denied or offers an inadequate settlement, we will help you seek damages.
Can you help me resolve a landlord-tenant dispute?
Yes, we resolve these disputes all the time. If you are a tenant, we can defend your rights and help you enforce the landlord’s obligations under your lease. If you are the landlord, we can help you enforce your rights to inspect, rent, and, if necessary, evict and regain possession.
What kind of legal documents do I need to start a small business?
To start a small business in Florida, you will need Articles of Incorporation or Articles of Organization (if you choose to start an LLC), a Federal Tax ID number, an Operating Agreement or Bylaws, contracts, and, depending on your business, licenses and trademark or copyright registrations. We help small business owners with all of these items, so call us to get your new business started.
