The real estate market is one that is constantly in flux – housing prices change, land value skyrockets or plummets, and there are many things to check off the to-do list before a deal is closed. With the help of a real estate attorney in St. Petersburg, you can rest assured knowing that you are covering all of your bases. These transactions can be complicated, but having an attorney there to assist with closings, contract preparation, arranging for title searches, and more ensures that you have someone looking out for your best interests during the process. During difficult-to-navigate deals, you need to have someone with experience who you can trust by your side.

The Benefits of Hiring a Real Estate Attorney

When you hire a real estate attorney, you are choosing to have a licensed and experienced professional working with you who has encountered and helped resolve issues in many different scenarios. To prevent any snags from arising during the process, you need someone who is educated in legal matters directly related to the process of buying and selling property to advocate for you. With their help, you can avoid pitfalls such as incorrectly filed paperwork, oversights in contracts, and more.

Most clients in St. Petersburg who are considering hiring a real estate attorney do so to make sure that they have everything covered. Missing a step, even if it is a small one, can cause delays. Many clients also appreciate the additional benefit of having a professional to handle or assist with paperwork; after all, when it comes to the exchange of property, there are many documents and agreements that need to be reviewed and signed. With legal transactions, you will want to make sure that you fully understand everything you are signing and agreeing to, and your lawyer can go over all of the forms and paperwork with you. At Growney, McKeown, and Barber, P.A., we can assist our real estate clients with contracts, agreements, closings, titles, and more.

Landlord/Tenant Law

Being a landlord can sometimes be problematic, especially when you have a tenant that ignores the terms of their lease. Our firm counsels landlords on dealing with tenants by constructing proper leases and helping to make sure that transactions are completed in accordance with Florida law. A lawyer can also sit down and discuss landlord liability and assist with creating documents such as leases and disclosure agreements. Our firm can also assist in evicting tenants who violate their lease.
