Fort Lauderdale Real Estate Attorneys

Real Estate Attorneys in Fort Lauderdale, Florida


Both residential and commercial real estate transactions can be complex. While it is possible to complete either type of transaction without the assistance of an attorney, this is not always in your best interest.

The most important thing you can do when you are involved in a real estate matter is to consult with an experienced Fort Lauderdale real estate attorney.

At Schecter Real Estate Law, we have decades of experience on our side.

We understand how challenging residential and commercial real estate matters can be, and we are committed to providing our clients with comprehensive legal representation and assistance in every stage of their real estate transaction.

Commercial Real Estate

Most small business owners need an affordable place to do business. Ideally, the property would be in a good location and properly zoned for business use.

Acquiring or selling commercial real estate can be challenging, especially without the guidance of an experienced commercial real estate lawyer.

If you are interested in purchasing or selling commercial property, it is critical that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible.

Purchasing Commercial Real Estate

Often, purchasing commercial real estate is a more involved process than that of residential real estate. There is more that needs to be evaluated, including:

  • zoning
  • development
  • potential disputes

If you are considering purchasing property for your business, an attorney can help you locate the right property.

By taking into account your unique needs as a business owner, your lawyer can help ensure that your best interests are being protected throughout every stage.

Leasing Commercial Real Estate

Often, renting property for your business is more beneficial than purchasing, especially if your business is just getting off the ground.

However, leasing commercial real estate is far more complex than leasing residential property. It’s important that you discuss your needs in detail with an experienced Fort Lauderdale commercial real estate lawyer.

At Schecter Real Estate Law, we will review your leasing contract to ensure the terms are in your favor, and we will provide you with the information you need to make important decisions about your business and its potential property.

Selling Commercial Real Estate

If you are a commercial real estate owner and are interested in selling your property, a South Florida real estate attorney can help you.

At Schecter Real Estate Law, we will help you prepare your property for sale and will help you locate potential buyers who will be interested in what your property offers.

We will work hard to make sure that the transaction is completed smoothly, and we will do everything we can to ensure that you get as much revenue as possible from the property sale.

Residential Real Estate

Schecter Real Estate Law has a team of experienced residential real estate lawyers who can help you sell your home or purchase a new home.

Buying a Home

Buying residential property is one of the biggest purchases that a person will make in their lifetime. It is critical that you work with an experienced residential real estate attorney in order to ensure that the transaction includes:

  • A home inspection contingency that allows you to walk away from the purchase if the home inspection reveals significant structural damage
  • Seller assist, if you so choose
  • Financing that meets your needs
  • Enough time before the closing date

By working with a seasoned lawyer, you can ensure that the terms of your sale contract protect your rights and best interests, and that the transaction is completed in your favor.

Selling a Home

It is just as important to have adequate legal guidance when selling residential real estate as it is when buying it.

When your attorney reviews your sale transaction, he or she will be looking to ensure that:

  • You are entitled to damages if the purchaser does not fulfill their part of the agreement
  • Your real estate contract includes certain written advisories that protect your rights and best interests
  • Your contract includes all pertinent information, such as:
    • the closing date
    • the purchase price
    • finance terms
    • and more

Although selling residential real estate can be done without the help of a lawyer, it could cost you significantly in the long run. Your lawyer will evaluate each aspect of the sales transaction to ensure it is completed in a way that is beneficial and cost-effective for you.
