Working Beside You To Solve Your Legal Problems

A Florida Real Estate Attorney Committed To Your Success

Having an experienced real estate lawyer by your side is crucial. Issues can arise suddenly and unpredictably, which can lead to heated arguments between parties, costly delays, contract disputes, and all-around headaches for the parties involved. At the Seminole law firm of Corey Szalai Law, PLLC, I focus on helping ease these headaches by helping its clients navigate these uncertain situations and guide them toward resolution.

I help lenders and investors, contractors, purchasers, sellers, title agents and other clients tackle these issues head-on and with a solution-oriented approach so that these issues can be resolved as quickly as possible. Real estate and property are some of the biggest investments you will make, so having a knowledgeable attorney by your side is important to help protect these investments and defend your rights. I provide services in the following areas for clients throughout the Tampa Bay area.

Quiet Title Litigation

Quiet title litigation is a legal process that is used to resolve disputes or uncertainties regarding the ownership or title of a property. It is a lawsuit filed to establish a clear and marketable title to a property and to “quiet” or resolve any competing claims or clouds on the title.

Quiet title litigation can be a complex legal process, and it is advisable to consult with an experienced real estate lawyer such as myself who can provide guidance and representation throughout the proceedings.

Partition Of Real Property

In the context of real estate law, a partition refers to a legal process used to divide or separate co-owned property among the co-owners. Think of this like a forced sale of the property when each co-owner cannot agree. It is often employed when there is a dispute or disagreement among co-owners regarding the use, management, or distribution of a jointly owned property.

A partition can be sought for various types of co-owned properties, including real estate, such as land or buildings. It is commonly used when multiple individuals, such as family members or business partners, jointly own a property and wish to sever their ownership interests by selling them. I have helped many property owners defend their interests in a property through partition actions. To learn more about my services and how I can help, call 727-308-4300. I represent individuals in Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg areas with my office in Seminole.

Contract Drafting Services

I draft all types of Florida contracts relating to real estate, including:

  • Promissory notes
  • Mortgages
  • Purchase and sale agreements
  • Creating new entities for transactions (i.e. setting up LLCs, Corporations, and Partnerships)
  • Security agreements
  • Leases (residential and commercial)
  • Deed in lieu of foreclosure
  • Agreements to vacate

I handle these contracts with a diligent and detail-oriented approach to avoid confusion or litigation down the road. I can also represent you if you’re facing a real estate contract dispute.

Deed Drafting

I draft all kinds of deeds, including special warranty deeds, general warranty deeds, quitclaim deeds and lady bird deeds.

Escrow Disputes

An escrow dispute refers to a disagreement or conflict that arises between parties involved in an escrow transaction. Escrow is a process commonly used in real estate transactions and other financial transactions to protect the interests of both the buyer and seller. It involves a neutral third party, known as the escrow agent, holding funds, documents, or other assets until specific conditions are met.

It’s important for all parties involved in an escrow transaction to understand their rights and obligations and to consult with an experienced lawyer such as myself in escrow matters to navigate any disputes that may arise.

Landlord/Tenant Issues

Whether you are a landlord or tenant and need help drafting or interpreting your rights under a lease agreement, I can help. Whether there is a tenant who broke a lease, a landlord who has not fulfilled their legally required obligations, an eviction that is needed to be filed or defended, or property damage claims, it is important to have an experienced attorney by your side.
