Title Dispute Representation Lawyer for Gainesville, FL
A key step in the real estate process in Florida is ensuring the seller has clear, marketable title that is free and clear of any title defects or liens. If the owner does not have clear title, your investment in the property could be at risk because of another party claiming a superior interest in the property. Title disputes and real estate disputes occur more often than many people realize. However, experienced real estate lawyers can usually resolve the problem through negotiation and mediation instead of filing a quiet title action or other real estate litigation.
The real estate lawyers at our Gainesville real estate firm are talented negotiators in addition to highly-skilled and experienced trial litigators. If we cannot solve your title dispute through mediation and negotiation, we are prepared to file a lawsuit to resolve the issue in court.

Real estate laws in Florida cover all aspects of the commercial and residential real estate process. From contracts to leases and title defects to real estate closings, there are applicable statutes and case law to guide an attorney as he is working to resolve a title dispute.
Our Gainesville title dispute attorneys understand these laws, and we continually research new laws and new cases to ensure we have knowledge of the most current factors and laws that relate to your title dispute.
