Foreclosure Representation

When a borrower has become what the lender deems as habitually delinquent in their mortgage payments, the lender may legally seek to foreclose on the home or property.

The lender begins this process by be petitioning the court in a judicial foreclosure proceeding where the court will issue a it’s ruling and final judgment of a foreclosure legal claim.

The mortgage documents are filed to evidence the underlying debt and terms of repayment, which is set forth in the note.

A complaint is filed in county court along with what is known as a lis pendens, which is a recorded document that provides public notice that the property is being foreclosed upon. After the court has ruled in favor of the lender, the property may then be sold as part of a publicly noticed sale or auction.

The foreclosure process generally takes approximately 150-180 days to effectuate an uncontested foreclosure, depending upon the court schedule. This process may often be delayed if the borrower chooses to contest the foreclosure action, seeks delays and adjournments of hearings, or files for bankruptcy.

The defendant, or borrower, has a specific period of time to respond to a foreclosure complaint (notice)which has been fired with the court. Typically this is 28 to 30 days. Failure to respond in the prescribed period of time may result in a foreclosure approval by default, in favor of the lender.

When the foreclosure is against a business property, it can be devastating for the for companies currently conducting business at the property location. We can represent your legal rights and interests in the foreclosure legal issues. When the property resident is the owner of the property, we may be able to assist you in negotiating an agreement with the lender to restructure the payment structure or develop an acceptable payment plan to get caught up. If the operating tenant is not the owner of the property, there may be legal standing to keep the property operational to continue to conduct business through the current leasing agreement.

Land Use and Zoning

Depending upon your intentions regarding a piece of property, land use and zoning matters for property owners, commercial developers, and individuals will have to be addressed with the local city and/or county government.

Land use and zoning laws were established to ensure specify how and where commercial and residential property areas are utilized in the growth of geographic locations.

These land use and zoning laws not only establish the unique boundaries between residential, commercial business, and industrial areas, but also may include restrictions for minimum distances from structures such as schools, churches, government facilities, or other residential or commercial entitles.

Understanding how land use and zoning laws apply to property or land you are interested in is extremely important in any real estate decision that you make. Failure to do so may be costly or hinder your ability to achieve your business goals relating to the property or land in question.

We can often help work out developer agreements with planning and zoning boards, regional boards, County commissions, and the local Department of Community Affairs in the Polk County and Central Florida area.

Real Estate Sales Transactions

Navigating the process of the real estate sales process can be quite complex. It involves much more than simply touring the facilities and offering a bid for the purchase of the property. There are both federal and state laws which apply to real estate, with many of the state real estate laws changing from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.

State and Federal Real Estate Laws include real estate transaction procedures, zoning,  restrictions, and other issues which may affect the sale of property or land. Also specifically covered by these laws are the following:

  • Ownership of Land, Property, and Building Structures
  • Financing
  • Leasing
  • Title Issues
  • Construction
  • Tax Issues; and
  • Environmental Laws

Whether you are purchasing, leasing, or selling a Property, protecting your legal rights and options must be one of the first things to consider. In any real estate transaction, both parties goal is to get the best deal for themselves. If just one issue in the real estate sales process is not given it’s due attention, it may have the potential of being costly for the buyer, seller, or both parties involved.

Title Issues and Deed Transfers

A deed is a document which stipulates the owner of a particular real estate property. The property may be a building structure and/or piece of land. A deed specifies the names of the previous and current owners, and a legal description of the property.

When the property is being sold, willed, given to another party other than the current owner, the deed is being legally transferred from current owner to a new owner. Real Estate Property cannot be legally transferred without having something in writing, which in most cases is a deed.

In order to pass the title of a property, a deed with a proper description of the land must be executed and delivered. According to the American Land Title Association, 26 percent of title searches reveal an issue that must be corrected before purchasing the property. If these issues go uncorrected, they can pose big problems for investors when they eventually come to light.
Common Title issues include, but are not limited to:

  • Liens: State, local, and federal tax liens are some of the most common title issues we handled. However, there are a number of liens that can significantly affect the ability to transfer a title including mechanic’s liens and judgment liens.
  • Missing Parcels: It is not uncommon for a title to be missing a parcel of land. This can happen as a result of the subdivision of a property. Our attorneys understand how to establish a chain of tile and present the information to the court so if necessary, the deeds can be reformed.
  • Missing Ownership Interests: When land is transferred between multiple parties, such as during the probate of an estate or a business with multiple partners, ownership interests can become convoluted. This often results in titles that have unresolved ownership interests. We have set up a set of procedures that typically allows us to resolve missing ownership issues within the time frame of a normal closing.

The most common types of deed transfers are:

  • Quitclaim deed transfers: Quitclaim deeds transfer or “quit” any interest in real property. The grantor may not be in title at all, so the grantee cannot assume that the grantor has any real interest to convey. However, if the grantor were, say, married to the owner of the property, signing and recording a quitclaim deed in favor of the spouse would transfer any interest the grantor may have in the property to the spouse.
  • Grant deed transfers: A deed to real estate containing an implied promise that the person transferring the property actually has good title and that the property is not encumbered in any way, except as described in the deed. This is the most commonly used type of deed.
  • Warranty deed transfers: A warranty deed transfers ownership and explicitly promises the buyer that the transferor has good title to the property, meaning it is free of liens or claims of ownership. The transferor guarantees that he or she will compensate the buyer if that turns out to be wrong. The warranty deed may make other promises as well, to address particular problems with the transaction.
