Why Is a Real Estate Attorney Important in a Vero Beach Transaction?

Unfortunately, buying or selling property and navigating other real estate transactions does not always go as planned. Having an attorney on your side who knows real estate and contract law can help.
If your disagreement or dispute does turn into litigation, you will likely want to work with a lawyer. Having an attorney on your side can help you pursue the best possible outcome in the case, including a ruling in your favor.

Our Real Estate Litigation Services in Vero Beach
At Lulich & Attorneys, our lawyers work to help our clients reach an out-of-court agreement to avoid litigation when that offers the best choice based on the circumstances. Our clients often prefer this, which may cost less, allow for better relationships moving forward, and lead to quicker conflict resolution.
However, we stand ready to litigate real estate disputes if necessary. Our trial attorneys do not back down from what we believe our clients deserve. If litigation represents the best option based on the facts of the case and we must ask an Indian River County judge to decide, we can take this step.
In addition to representing clients involved in real estate disputes, we also offer several services that could help prevent litigation. This includes:
Lulich & Attorneys is not only a law firm but also an attorney led title company. We effectively investigate any claims or liens on a property and ensure we can issue a clear title before any real estate transaction moves forward.
After the buyer and seller agree on a price and meet all contractual obligations, we handle the closing. We offer both digital and traditional closings. With a digital closing, the parties can sign from other parts of the country.
Lastly, we complete the transaction by recording all necessary paperwork with the Indian River County Clerk of Court at the county courthouse. This represents the final, necessary step to ensure the county records the sale properly.
Our law firm offers title insurance. We believe that every homebuyer or investor should protect their investment in any way possible. We believe title insurance can prove key to protecting your legal and financial interests.
When a homeowner sells their property to a buyer, they often agree to provide title insurance in the value of the purchase price. This policy pays out if you face a dispute over the title because someone else has a claim or lien on the property. For example, the seller could have failed to disclose they owed a significant sum in back taxes, and the title company did not identify this issue during their investigation.
If the new buyer loses the dispute over their property, their title insurance policy should cover the money they spend to buy the real estate.
Representing Buyers and Sellers
Our lawyers represent both buyers and sellers in Vero Beach real estate transactions. We can manage all parts of these transactions and work to ensure our client gets a fair price with no significant issues. We know where disputes commonly arise in real estate transactions and can often settle them before they begin.
While we can help anyone navigate this process, our services often prove particularly important to those who choose to sell or purchase a home without representation from an agent or broker. We provide knowledge of Florida real estate law far beyond what any agent or broker could. We could negotiate agreements that prevent disputes and litigation or stop disagreements before they even occur.
If you want answers to your questions, need to ensure the accuracy of your real estate transaction, or worry about complex circumstances, our team can help. We represent our clients’ best interests and can serve as their title company, advocate, and attorney.
Real Estate Disputes: Foreclosures and Evictions
Unfortunately, foreclosures and evictions can sometimes prove necessary. No matter which side of this dispute you are on, a real estate lawyer from Lulich & Attorneys could help. We represent homeowners, landlords, and lenders. Our attorneys offer compassion and a non-judgmental attitude. We know it sometimes can prove hard to make ends meet, including paying your mortgage or rent.
However, we also understand the business side and know you need the income from your investment to pay your bills. No one wants to foreclose on a home or evict a renter, but sometimes, this proves necessary.
Our attorneys know how to navigate the process of foreclosure or eviction under state law. We also understand the common ways we could reach an agreement and settle this dispute without resorting to an eviction or foreclosure. You could have other options that you may not know about.
Foreclosures in Vero Beach
We know how foreclosure proceedings work under Florida law. Lenders generally want their borrowers to pay their mortgages and keep their homes. To this end, Florida provides several options for homeowners to fight foreclosure and remain in their homes.
If you are a homeowner who cannot pay the amount due on your mortgage statement, we could negotiate new payment arrangements that consider your:
- New illness or injury
- Job loss
- Medical bills
- Other financial concerns
On the other hand, it may be time for a mortgage holder to move forward with foreclosure if the homeowner does not respond to their attempts to reach an agreement or there are other issues with the account. Our Vero beach foreclosure lawyers know the laws and how to file these actions. We can help you with what to file, when, and where.
Evictions in Vero Beach
Evictions can be somewhat easier than foreclosures, but they can also prove a complex action that requires knowledge of applicable laws. Both state and local laws include stipulations the landlord must follow to evict a tenant.
Some valid reasons for eviction might include:
- Failing to pay rent
- Destroying the property
- Failing to follow rules
- Disturbing neighbors
A landlord must file eviction proceedings when evicting a commercial or residential tenant. We handle the necessary paperwork for property owners.
- Commercial properties
- Residential properties
We also represent leaseholders and renters accused of violating the terms of their lease who face eviction proceedings. In these cases, we fight evictions or pursue better outcomes for our clients, such as fighting for a security deposit.
An eviction can be very costly for the tenant. Not only do they need to find another place to live or run their business, but they need to cover the cost of moving expenses and other necessary costs. In addition, finding another landlord willing to rent to you following an eviction can prove challenging. When possible, avoid an eviction. Our attorneys could help.
