Purchasing a new home, launching a business or going in a timeshare rental property on your favorite Florida beach may be at the top of your list for goals to achieve this year. While each of these is a different kind of transaction, they all involve creating and signing contracts, which can be simple and straightforward or complex and confusing to understand. In either case, it’s always a good idea to have an experienced attorney review your proposed contract so as to avoid real estate disputes down the line.
It is indeed possible to execute and sign a contract without legal representation. However, going it alone leaves you at great risk for all sorts of legal problems, especially if it’s the first time you’ve ever signed a real estate agreement. Many major obstacles can be easily avoided if the person who reviews the contract before signing is familiar with state law and understands the key components to successful negotiation.
Buying, selling, building or investing in real estate opens the door to financial success but can also lead to serious economic loss if important issues are mistakenly overlooked or the parties signing an agreement do not fully understand its contents. Even when lack of clarity is not an issue, many people run into trouble when one or more parties involved in a contract fail to adhere to its terms. Such situations often lead to litigation.
Real estate disputes can take days, weeks or even months to resolve. Those involved stand a better chance of achieving a swift and satisfactory solution if they rely on experienced legal support. The attorneys at Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, P.A. are committed to helping those purchasing, selling or building property in Florida.
