Real estate disputes: Amicable negotiation, a key to success

| Mar 11, 2020 | Real Estate Disputes |

Many business owners, as well as private property owners in Florida run into trouble when a party with whom they’ve signed a contract doesn’t adhere to the terms. Whether you are a seller, a buyer, a landlord or tenant, it can be difficult and highly stressful to resolve real estate disputes when they arise. To avoid such problems, it pays to carefully review a prospective agreement before signing anything.

It’s also helpful to ask someone who is well-versed in Florida real estate law to take a look at a contract to check for any potential problem issues or to make recommendations for revisions to clarify terms or better protect your interests. Once you add your signature to a valid contract, you and all other signatories are legally bound to adhere to its terms. If you’re unsure about a certain phrase, deadline, fee or other legal issue, it’s best to refrain from signing until clarification is provided.

Disputes between landlords and tenants can be particularly challenging to resolve. Did a landlord wrongly evict you from your residence? Are you being overcharged in monthly rent because of hidden fees? Perhaps, the shoe is on the other foot and you are the landlord who has been trying to collect unpaid rent from a tenant who has stopped answering your phone calls.

When faced with real estate disputes, whether those involving a lease agreement, boundary lines or other issue related to this area of law, you’re better off turning to an experienced real estate attorney for support than trying to handle a legal problem on your own.
