Florida Property & Title Disputes
Property and title disputes
For any real estate buyer, assuring quality of title is of paramount importance. Buyers must be sure to protect themselves from title defects by conducting proper title research, negotiating the procurement of title insurance and ensuring their deeds contain protective warranties. The Panama City and Panama City Beach real estate attorneys of Burke Blue understand the importance of a clean and marketable title. That is why our firm offers legal counsel and representation through every phase of a real estate transaction — from acquisition to closing.
Every parcel of property has a history and issues to resolve when that property changes hands. Such issues might include property line discrepancies, old easements, competing deeds, covenants or other reservations. These title defects can call ownership into question and allow others to lay claim to all or part of a parcel of real estate. A buyer who purchases real estate with a defective title may ultimately incur even more expenses just to protect the property. Our Panama City and Panama City Beach real estate lawyers can help real estate buyers protect themselves and ensure they actually receive the rights and property for which they bargained.
Resolving land disputes for nearly 40 years
Even with a completed transaction, property owners can still face a variety of disputes. These can include disagreements over boundaries, land use, scope of easements and covenants. When such disputes arise, having legal counsel from the experienced real estate lawyers at Burke Blue can be the difference between a swift resolution and a protracted legal dispute.
The rights of an owner of real property are not absolute and unfortunately property owners may find themselves in a dispute with surrounding property owners, former owners, easement holders and the government. These disputes can severely impair the use and profitability of property if they are not resolved promptly. At Burke Blue, our real estate lawyers in Panama City, FL, as well as Panama City Beach have been helping resolve these types of disputes for nearly 40 years. We understand that property is a big investment and we focus on protecting and preserving that investment for our clients.
