Our Mission

Real Estate

Our Real Estate Attorneys aim to offer clients a one-stop, comprehensive approach to Real Estate Transactions, handling multiple areas of law. Real Estate Law can be confusing.  Whether it’s the language in the fine print, or the back and forth during the negotiation process, every real estate transaction and every real property dispute has issues that can benefit or harm the parties involved. At Abecassis & Associates, P.A., we recognize each of our clients’ unique situations and needs, and we complete real estate transactions and we resolve real property disputes to our clients’ best advantage.  Our professional and thorough legal representation allows our clients to navigate real property law with experience, knowledge, and confidence.

Transactions: We represent clients in all aspects of residential Real Estate Transactions, including purchase, sale and lease agreements; negotiating, drafting and reviewing contracts and leases; examining title and resolving title issues; drafting and reviewing of closing documents; and representing clients at closing
Our firm handles Commercial Real Estate Transactions as well. We help buyers, sellers, investors, tenants and landlords in matters that include zoning and land use, environmental inspections, compliance, tax matters, representation at closings, and contract and lease negotiation, drafting and review.
We provide our clients with counsel regarding title insurance, as well as thorough title examination services to check for issues involving liens, judgments, encumbrances, boundary lines, easements and other potential title issues.
We represent lenders on a wide range of matters, including compliance with RESPA and other lender regulations, drafting and reviewing loan and mortgage documents, and the issuance of title insurance policies and endorsements. We also represent investors and private/hard money lenders for transactional funding, extended transactional funding and hard money closings.
After you have received a certificate of title and become the owner of a foreclosed property, you still have some work to do in order to protect your property from further damage or waste, perform repairs and maintenance and if you want to list the property for sale or rent. We represent clients to obtain a Writ of Possession after a foreclosure sale in Florida.
In Florida, Brokers are faced with more and more disputes with sellers, buyers and co-brokers over commissions. An understanding of the law and how to take steps to protect your rights to commissions are essential.  It is generally preferable to have an executed written brokerage agreement.  That agreement should set forth the commission, the entity that is responsible for the payment of the commission, when that commission is earned; define procuring cause and how disputes should be adjudicated. We can help you draft these types of agreements and can also represent you should litigation arise.
The granting of a deficiency judgment in mortgage foreclosure is the rule rather than the exception. We can help you fight the post-foreclosure deficiency judgment.
We can assist you with negotiating the terms of your lease to ensure that your interests are properly protected. With respect to both the eviction process and the rights and duties of the parties to the lease, we can help resolve your Landlord/Tenant dispute.
When it comes to investing in real estate, we assist buyers with some of the more complex matters of real estate law to ensure a smooth transition.
