Areas of Real Estate Law in Which We Provide Service
At The Law Offices of Travis R. Walker, PA, we handle real estate matters that span a full spectrum of practices. What starts as a real estate transaction can end up in litigation or lead to a partition action; our attorneys have the breadth of experience to help you understand the potential effects that a decision today could have tomorrow and best position yourself for success.
Real Estate Litigation
Our attorneys have represented plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of litigation matters related to real property. These matters include partitions, commercial foreclosure, breach of contract, and quiet title actions.
Sometimes litigation can be avoided, but other times, litigation is a necessary step on the path to firmly establish legal rights concerning a property. One key to successful real estate litigation is to choose a real estate lawyer in Stuart, FL who has an extensive understanding of the laws and principles underlying the case.
Partition is the legal division of property between owners, and it can be a necessary procedure when co-owners do not agree on how to proceed with a property.
Partition cases often involve family members, significant others or business partners who purchase and own a property together. We assist property owners who are dealing with a co-owner who is attempting to do something with the property such as selling the property out from under them or trying to prevent a sale when one should occur.
You have a right to bring an action or defend against your co-owner(s) who are attempting to sell the property. You may be able to get any mortgages and liens paid off or require the terms of the agreement to be complied with. The law provides that you are entitled to a portion of your attorney’s fees being reimbursed to you.
While it is optimal if you are on the title/deed of the property, we regularly represent clients who are not in title or on the deed. We would appreciate the opportunity to guide you through this process.
Our firm has represented both associations and unit owners with regards to a variety of issues including, but not limited to: assessments, easements, and governing issues in the Treasure Coast and Palm Beaches.
Florida features more than 1.5 million condominium units, which are subject to condo-specific laws and regulations. They are also the setting for more general legal disputes that can raise condo-specific questions.
Condominium associations are governed by Florida statute. We have also represented clients in disputes involving document interpretation, disputes with board members, injuries occurring on common elements, pet restrictions, fair housing act issues, selective enforcement, leasing, guest approval disputes, and property manager harassment. Speak with an experienced Martin County real estate attorney for an evaluation of the issues you are facing as an association or a unit owner. Our legal team can help you understand your legal rights and options regardless of which side of the dispute you find yourself on.
Land Use and Zoning
Our firm has extensive experience with land use and zoning including comprehensive plans, zoning changes, variances, special exceptions, Planned Unit Developments (PUD), Development of Regional Impacts (DRI), annexations, developer’s agreements, and many other land use and zoning issues. Additionally, we have developed extensive relationships with key players across the Treasure Coast which allows us to advocate effectively on behalf of our clients.
Even when a property is private, its use and development is impacted by a growing body of regulations. Navigating the regulatory process is a critical step to getting projects of any size off the ground and it requires a delicate balance of cooperation with local officials while firmly advocating for the client’s rights.
Real Estate Transactions
Our firm has represented buyers and sellers of residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural, and other types of properties. We assist with the negotiation and due diligence required to ensure a smooth and successful transaction.
Choosing a skilled real property attorney is an important step in protecting your interests. If a complex transaction is not structured thoughtfully, it could expose the buyer or seller to financial loss and unexpected legal obligations. Our law firm is here to make sure that your best interests are looked after.
Our attorneys have represented both associations and property owners with regards to a variety of issues including assessments, easements, and governing issues. We understand the laws and regulations that guide Florida homeowners’ associations. We are available to help you determine whether the association’s or a resident’s actions comply with governing documents and to decide on the best course of action.
Though homeowner’s associations exist to promote rules and guidelines that foster harmony among neighbors, associations can and do become embroiled in legal disputes. When HOA board members or association residents consult a lawyer before or during a disagreement, many situations can be resolved before they grow into a significant conflict and even litigation.
