Negotiating Real Estate Contracts

A real estate contract is a legally binding document between two or more parties. Whether you are looking to buy, sell or lease residential or commercial property, you should always seek out the services of an experienced real estate lawyer in South Florida to draft or negotiate a contract to suits your particular needs.

It is common to find buyers, sellers, tenants and landlords (in both residential and commercial context) seeking legal guidance about a contract issue that could have been prevented if an experienced real estate lawyer had been consulted. Legal advice is invaluable in negotiating the best possible contract to purchase, sell or lease real estate. It ensures a carefully drafted agreement that will assist all parties in the transaction. It also reduces the potential for problems, disagreements and potential lawsuits in the years that follow.

A normal misconception people often make is the belief that there are “standard” real estate contracts in Florida. An enforceable and comprehensive agreement is never a “one-size-fits-all” formula. Every contract needs to be based on your specific terms and requirements. The best way to negotiate a contract is by hiring an experienced real estate lawyer before entering into the transaction.

It is not uncommon for a real estate transaction to encounter some hiccups prior to closing. Your first course of action is to consult with a real estate attorney to discuss and analyze your options. Litigation should not be the first action, instead, your attorney may be able to find options which benefit all parties and avoid a lawsuit.
