We Tackle Challenges and Advance Your Objectives​

There are four primary real estate disputes which we handle. 
  • We represent commercial real estate owners in tenant evictions, contractor disputes, disputes between adjoining property owners, and more.
  • There are disputes involving residences. Closings that fall apart, evictions, contractor mistakes, and title issues.
  • We represent owners in matters with their condominium and homeowners’ associations.
  • We represent real estate investors. With investors, all of the matters listed above may be involved, in addition to quiet title actions, re-foreclosures, surplus applications, and tax assessment appeals.

If property is held in the name of a fictitious entity (corporation, partnership, limited liability company), then Florida law requires you to be represented by counsel in virtually all court proceedings. It is ideal and in your best interest to engage us early. Litigation, including a Lis Pendens, and litigation costs affect cash flow and flexibility. Association cases most often can be resolved without a lawsuit being filed by either side. We rarely file on behalf of association members based upon our communication skills and our advice. 

 

Mr. Liss, being an association law author for LEXIS-NEXIS® and president of an HOA, has unique insights into how resolve matters within an association without litigation. Again, retaining an attorney at the outset is the safest way to stay out of court. If you believe that you are facing a dispute regarding your real estate then call us for a consultation and let us help.
