Kinds of Residential Transaction Support in Florida

·         Transaction Broker

When you are looking for representation for you as the buyer or you as the seller in a real estate transaction, you should consider getting the support of a skilled residential law professional. There are various important factors that must be considered and steps that must be taken to make sure that you are protected from the common buyer or seller pitfalls. This can be really common for commercial real estate, but you might want this kind of representation and support for any residential transaction.

Your transaction broker will make sure that you are dealt with honestly and fairly and that all the funds are accounted for related to your deal. Your residential transaction will also need someone to make sure that the right facts are disclosed during the sale and that the value of the property is correctly established. The deal that you are working on will be presented to officers or other parties who are required to sign off on the sale, and you will not have to guess who should be involved in the transaction either.

When limited confidentiality is involved, or a disclosure that should be done is not being taken care of, your lawyer will work to make sure that you do not sign anything or pay for anything related to the deal until this information is properly conveyed and outlined in legal documentation. Financing, down payments, and all other parts of the financial process will be correctly taken care of when you have a legal professional working on your side for this kind of residential transaction.

·         Single Agent

The duties of a single agent representative are intended to help protect your interests when a more straightforward purchase or sales process is being engaged in. This is not much different than the process of working with a realtor for this kind of need, except that the legal professional representing your interests will have much more experience with the documentation and legal requirements for this kind of sale or purchase.

You will want to secure a single agent legal representative when you are looking to have a fair and honest deal that involves confidentiality and protection from incorrect documentation or other potentially important legal mistakes during the transaction. This legal representative will account for all the funds involved in the transaction and make sure that there is full and correct disclosure related to the transaction as well.

The legal representative acting as your single agent will also present offers and counteroffers correctly and in a timely manner. This person can also advise as to the various considerations that might need to be kept in mind related to each deal. It can be overwhelming to try and determine if the offer that you have received is the right one for your needs. When you have expert legal guidance on your side, the process of picking the right deal or offer is much easier

·         Non-Representative Broker

There are some limited instances when you might want to have a legal professional who has no brokerage relationship to your deal but who will help to make sure that the facts are disclosed and that you are given all the right information related to your deal. This person can also look over all the documentation related to the transaction and ensure that no important documents or processes are overlooked along the way.

As a buyer or seller, you might not be familiar enough with the process of residential transactions to completely go it alone. You can get the expert guidance that you need from a third party who will help you to complete your side of the deal with ease. This is the most common way in which legal representation is accessed by those who are involved in residential deals. Don’t be afraid to seek the kind of legal support that you need for your residential transactions, even if you just need third-party legal advice during the sale or the buying process.

What Is the Transaction Broker Relationship?

When a transaction broker is involved as a limited representative of the buyer or the seller, it is their duty to look after the process of the transaction, but they are not working as a single agent in most cases. The real estate licensee usually undertakes the other brokerage duties related to the sale. In some instances, your legal representative is licensed to take care of both needs and might handle the entirety of the brokerage process.

There are various ways to access the skill of a legal representative in residential transactions and various benefits for doing so. When there is concern over transparency or over the kind of documentation that must be completed in order to secure a sale, a legal representative is almost always essential to the buying or sales process. This is more common in commercial property purchases or sales, and it is quite common when a business property with an active business on it is changing hands.

Your legal representative can explain to you what the limits of their connection to the sales or buying process will be. You will be required to have a real estate professional in most cases to handle the remainder of the duties related to the transaction if your legal representative cannot undertake all of the various duties related to the sale.

The duties of the legal representative involved in any residential transaction will also need to be disclosed to both parties involved in the sale or the purchase. This makes clear what the boundaries of the relationship is between the legal representative and the transaction and makes it clear what is expected of the parties that are involved in the sale or the purchase process.

Law professionals can also offer negotiation support and assistance related to residential transactions. This can be of great benefit when a lot of money is involved in a deal or when a person who is engaged in a residential transaction is not comfortable with this part of the legal process. Making sure that you have the right support as you negotiate can be critical to the overall tone and nature of the deal that is secured. Commercial deals always require this kind of representation, but you might want to access this support for a residential transaction that is for a large dollar amount or that comes along with a lot of specific buying requirements. Legal services related to negotiation are often the best way to ensure that you get the right deal for your money and that your rights are protected at the same time.

What is a Limited Representation Agreement?

When a legal professional agrees to offer limited representation, this process includes a one-time review and comment style consultation. This means that the legal professional involved is not representing either side of the sale or purchase and are instead looking at the legal language and requirements that are included in the documents and the sale process itself. The legal professional can provide guidance and suggestions about ways to change or improve the sales or purchase process and documents but is not involved in the actual transactions that are being done surrounding the sale or the purchase itself.

There is a lot of liability for lawyers who take on this kind of job and then step past the boundaries of a limited representation agreement. Many law offices will not undertake this kind of arrangement related to residential transactions due to the nature of the limitations of its boundaries and the possibility of stepping past their limited involvement with the deal. You will need to work with a team of lawyers who are skilled in this kind of representation both for the protection of your own interests and to make sure that the involvement of a third-party legal professional does not invalidate the sale or purchase process.

Residential transactions can be quite complex and this is often why legal teams who are not real estate brokers or professionals in their daily practice are not interested in getting involved in residential transaction processes. Finding the right residential transaction lawyer can be difficult, and you do not want to work with a team that is not experienced and skilled in this part of the law.

One of the options that many people pursue instead of limited representation is legal document review or creation only. When lawyers offer this service, the team of professionals will draw up legal documents as requested related to a residential transaction, or they might review the documents that are already drafted for a sale to ensure that they are compliant with the law. This is a much more straightforward process and one that many legal professionals undertake for all kinds of different contract-based processes each year.

Clients utilizing these limited services will often be asked to sign an agreement that they are not utilizing the full range of services that are offered by the attorney team with regard to residential transactions. Limited services that are offered in this way protect the legal team from liability related to the residential transaction that has taken place. There are various reasons that clients might want to access limited services, and we can offer these tailored services with the agreement that we will not advise any further with regard to the transaction process.

At Lopez Law, we can handle your legal representation for any of these needs with ease. We know how to make sure that we are within the boundaries of our involvement with your case, and we will ensure that we do not overstep the boundaries when you ask for limited representation or document creation and review. You can count on us to offer you as much or as little support with your residential transactions as you need.

What Our Clients Say

A Godsend

Mr. Lopez was a Godsend and really helped me with my situation. Him and the entire firm were very diligent and helped speed the early stages of the process along due to a pressing situation. Throughout my experience working with the firm, they were always responsive and available any time I had a question or wanted to check on the state of affairs. Hopefully I won’t have to recommend Lopez Law Group to my friends or family, but if those unfortunate circumstances arise then there’s only one name I would trust. Thank you again for all your help!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...

Amazing Amazing Amazing!”

I called multiple attorneys to resolve my issue and none had much experience as much as this form. Anthony was amazing and made sure that as his client I was satisfied and understanding with his work. Very helpful and very patient and I was able to communicate with ease. I will definitely recommend this firm if you have a landlord/tenant issue or just an amazing attorney who listens to his clients needs.

Ashley Rondon

"Awesome!"

Thank you Geoff Pfeiffer, for your assistance when my HOA pushed back on my installation of the Solar Panels on my home. Your succinct and eloquent statements of my rights to them turned a “solar panels are not allowed on the front side of the roof, to a 100% approval with no changes needed. Thank you for helping me quickly resolved what was gearing up to be a fight with the HOA.

Zulma Cintron Smalls, EdD

“I Will Never Use Another Lawyer”

We couldn’t be more satisfied with Sean’s work and are so grateful we chose him to represent us. He works so diligently and tenaciously to get results, and somehow manages to combine being a consummate professional yet friendly and approachable. I was honestly terrified of receiving the final bill considering the hours upon hours he invested in our case (texts, calls, emails, meetings, etc.) after hearing nightmare lawyer stories from other people, but when I did I was shocked at how little he charged us. I never thought I’d say I wanted to pay somebody more than they charged, yet this time I did. I will never use another lawyer; we will use Sean for any and all representation we will ever need, and I urge others to do the same. Thank you, Sean!
