Real Estate and Land Use Law

Real estate and land use law comprises a significant portion of our practice.  Our real estate attorneys have substantial experience  in all aspects of real property law including the purchase, sale, transfer, exchange, development, construction, ownership, operation, management, financing, mortgaging, leasing, title insurance, and the tax-free exchange of real property.  Two of our real estate attorneys have been certified by the Florida Bar with specialties in this area of law.  Our real estate attorneys frequently collaborate with our commercial and tax attorneys on these matters.

Our attorneys have played major roles in structuring, negotiating, documenting and closing some of the larger and more complex real estate projects and transactions in our service area including shopping centers, retail centers, office centers, hotels, resorts, golf courses, hospitals, health care facilities, warehouse properties, industrial properties, condominiums, timeshare properties, cooperatives, subdivisions, multi-use developments, and multi-family rental properties.

Our clients include developers, contractors, institutional and private lenders, condominium associations, and commercial and residential buyers and sellers.  Our legal services for these clients involve contract negotiation, financing, documentation, title examination, insurance and related matters, and closing procedures.

Our services also include the structure and establishment of real estate entities and organizations, mortgage foreclosure, workouts, short-sales, land-use planning and development, permitting, and zoning, variance, special exception, and other administrative matters and hearings.

Lynette Mancuso and John Colton focus a significant portion of their practices in this area.  Don Harrell handles various real estate matters usually related to commercial transactions.
