South Florida Real Estate Attorneys Protect Clients’ Property Rights

Knowledgeable counselors with offices in West Palm Beach and Stuart

Real estate is the most important investment in most people’s lives, so related legal concerns must be handled with the utmost professionalism. At Vassallo, Bilotta & Davis, we have delivered strong counsel on a wide range of property matters since 1976. Our highly qualified attorneys have offices in West Palm Beach and Stuart where we help clients manage real estate transactions and disputes. Whether you seek advice on a contract, are having trouble with a rental property or need assistance with any other real estate matter, we have the legal and factual background to achieve your objectives.

Skillful advisers handle all types of transactions

We assist buyers and sellers in real estate purchases and sales. In order to transfer a property, a deed must be properly executed and a real estate closing is conducted. This proceeding can occur in our West Palm Beach or Stuart offices or by mail. Our firm handles each aspect of the process, which includes:

  • Contracts — Once a closing has occurred, it is usually too late to resolve potential contract problems. Our firm drafts clear, authoritative documents to minimize the possibility of confusion once the agreement has been completed. We also conduct thorough reviews of contracts prepared by other parties and serve as strong negotiators in residential and commercial transactions.
  • Title issues — Problems regarding the ownership of a particular parcel can destroy a deal or reduce the value of your property. As a title agent, we review the purchase and sale agreement, order the title commitment and survey, and issue the final policy. Title insurance is written through Attorneys’ Title Fund Services and Old Republic National Title Insurance Company. We have a detailed understanding of local properties and can make sure that you are protected against problems that relate to alleged title defects.
  • Deeds — We prepare legal, effective deeds suited to each client’s transaction. The first type of deed is a warranty deed, which protects the buyer by guaranteeing that the property is free and clear of any liens and is not subject to any claims by third parties. Alternatively, when a quitclaim deed is provided, the transferor is making no warranties that the property is free from any liens or encumbrances. These instruments are typically used in nontraditional purchases or transfers of real estate.

Aggressive advocates defend homeowners against foreclosures

If you face losing your home because you’ve missed mortgage payments, we can examine your situation to see if a solution exists. Lenders must abide by strict rules regarding foreclosure, and failure to obey these regulations might end the action against you. We provide strong advocacy for you and also work with financial institutions to enact mutually acceptable changes to your payment schedule or interest rate so that you can keep your house.

Accomplished attorneys deal effectively with landlord-tenant issues

Rental conflicts can harm both landlords and tenants. Our firm has detailed knowledge of the rules governing leases and will assert your rights during negotiations and in court if necessary. Whether the dispute relates to property conditions, unpaid rent or other potential lease violations, we will press for a prompt, positive resolution.
