Real Estate Experience to Complement Your Estate Plan

When people seek estate planning services, they may not be thinking of how their home or other real estate plays into that plan.  But that’s ok, we do.  By combining our estate planning knowledge with our many years of handling commercial and residential real estate transactions of all sizes and complexities, we will help you look at the big picture, not just one piece of the puzzle.

If you are considering buying or selling residential or commercial real estate, you may believe that you can handle the business or home closing by yourself or that you can rely on your agent or a title company to ensure that all documentation is correct and protects your interests. However, real estate transactions involve extensive paperwork, including numerous contracts. We believe it is always in your best interest to be represented by counsel when you buy or sell real estate in order to safeguard your rights.

We work with clients at all stages of the purchase or sale of residential and commercial real estate, including the negotiation of contract terms; preparation of documents; the review of title; and all aspects involved in the closing. Though many of our clients are local residents, we also work with many foreign and non-resident purchasers of Florida residential and commercial property, including developers. We have advised many individuals and businesses from outside of the state of Florida who have purchased waterfront property, real estate in golf course communities and open acreage in the state.

Since no two homes are alike and no two buyers and sellers are alike, there’s no such thing as “standard and customary,” Bartley Law will help you through the entire process.  And through our estate planning practice, we can show you how your real estate transaction would fit into your overall estate planning roadmap.
