NELSON HESSE, LLP's real estate department provides our clients with the advice and counsel necessary to navigate the complexities, customs, and peculiarities of real property purchase and sale. For most people, the purchase of real estate, whether residential, commercial, or industrial property, represents the single largest monetary investment of their lives. Therefore, choosing a lawyer to represent your interests becomes the most important decision in protecting that investment. With such large sums at stake, and increasingly sophisticated documentation required to bring transactions to closing, clients are well served to have legal representation in place before the first document is drafted, and certainly before a contract is signed. A good real estate attorney will ensure that you are treated honestly and kept informed about the various disclosures intended to protect you in the transaction.
The costs and expenses associated with real estate transactions are substantially similar for law firms and title companies. Both law firms and title companies provide title insurance policies. Title companies, however, are limited to providing core title services and the issuance of title insurance, and cannot give legal advice. The attorneys at NELSON HESSE provide additional service beyond the shuffle of papers and production of a title insurance policy. Every closing held at NELSON HESSE is handled by an attorney at the closing table. When the cost is virtually the same, it is penny wise and pound foolish to spend many thousands of dollars without the benefit of competent counsel.
The attorneys at NELSON HESSE, LLP can help you negotiate and prepare purchase and sale contracts, provide closing services that include title examination, resolve title issues and defects, review and prepare of financial documents, and produce a title insurance policy to protect the client’s investment. The participation of counsel -- from start to finish, to guide our clients through the process of buying, selling, or refinancing real estate -- highlights these services.
While located in downtown Sarasota, the attorneys at NELSON HESSE, LLP practice real estate law throughout the State of Florida. Most closing transactions involve properties located in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties. NELSON HESSE, LLP enjoys referrals from prominent real estate brokers, financial institutions, and mortgage brokers throughout the greater Sarasota and Bradenton areas, and works hard to maintain those flourishing working relationships.
NELSON HESSE, LLP also represents landlords and tenants in negotiating and preparing leases and in prosecuting and defending eviction and foreclosure matters. We can provide you with property management advice for your commercial and industrial property development and leasing, including review and preparation of leases and property management agreements. NELSON HESSE, LLP also practices in construction related matters, including representation in commercial and residential development, contract negotiation and drafting, and residential and commercial construction lending and financing.
