Offering Transactional and Litigation Real Estate Legal Services
“Real estate law.” Three words that cover a lot of territory, if you will excuse the pun. Lawyers tend to view real estate law in “transactional” and “litigation” terms. “Transactional” real estate law involves the negotiation and preparation of contracts involving real estate. “Litigation” real estate law, as you have probably guessed, involves lawsuits over real estate contracts.
The lawyers at Deeb Law Group have years of experience in both the transactional and litigation aspects of real estate law, and we are pleased to offer our services to you.
Preventing Lawsuits Tomorrow By Hiring A Lawyer Today
Business supply stores, computer software packages, innumerable Internet sites, and industry form banks offer you a dizzying array of fill-in-the-blank contracts and legal forms. Even the Florida Bar and Florida Association of Realtors have joined forces and produced what is commonly known as the “FAR-BAR” contract for use in residential real estate transactions. With all this available, why complicate things by hiring a lawyer? The answer is found in the countless lawsuits filed every year that result from the ill-advised use of contracts that were not tailored, or even reviewed, by a lawyer before the parties affixed their signatures and thereby irrevocably committed themselves to a contractual undertaking they did not truly understand. If someone puts a do-it-yourself appendectomy kit on the market, would you trust yourself to take out your own appendix? If so, a lawyer is the least of what you need. If, however, you are among the overwhelming majority of people who would prefer to let someone with experience and expertise perform the operation, then give careful consideration to why you would consider doing a contract yourself.
Representing Buyers and Sellers, and Commercial Landlords
We at Deeb Law Group have negotiated countless residential and commercial real estate contracts and drafted those contracts for both buyer and seller. We have also prepared innumerable commercial leases for both landlord and tenant. Each contract is tailored to your individual needs, helping to ensure that you will not face that gut-wrenching revelation that the $25 contract you downloaded off the Internet cost you $25,000 because of a clause you failed to notice or understand. The expense of involving us at the front end of a transaction is always significantly less than involving us only after an irreversible course of litigation has been charted for you by a contract you should never have used or signed.
Of course, our first opportunity to help a client very often comes because they used a contract they should not have used. Be assured, we can help even then. We have represented buyers, sellers, landlords, and tenants in cases from the simple eviction or earnest money deposit recovery to extremely complicated cases involving fraud, contract interpretation, and performance issues. We are pleased to do so for you.
