Fort Walton Beach And Destin Real Estate Lawyers Serving The Florida Panhandle

If it involves real estate, we handle it.

At Fleet, Smith & Freeman, our Fort Walton Beach firm provides full-service legal representation during real estate transactions and property disputes. Our real estate attorneys have more than 60 combined years of experience helping individuals and businesses throughout the Florida Panhandle buy and sell property and resolve disputes involving real estate.

Facilitating The Purchase And Sale Of Florida Real Estate

Transactions involving real estate are some of the largest financial commitments individuals and businesses engage in. There are many moving pieces during the purchase or sale of property. Failure to adequately investigate every aspect of a real estate transaction can leave buyers and sellers with huge financial loss.

At Fleet, Smith & Freeman, we thoroughly evaluate every aspect of our clients’ proposed real estate transactions before the contract is signed. Our lawyers investigate title to ensure it is clear and work to discharge any mortgages or encumbrances on the property. We review and draft financing agreements and profit-sharing contracts and ownership interests to make sure our clients fully understand their rights and responsibilities under proposed contracts.

Our attorneys also assist commercial developers. Before purchasing land, zoning regulations must be understood, restrictions addressed and any necessary variances obtained.

Confident Handling Of Real Estate Closings

Our firm is in a unique position when it comes to handling real estate closings. Since we have an attorney on staff who can review all of the documents, you can get both your real estate closing and the in-house counsel you need. We have a licensed title agent and licensed real estate attorney who work collaboratively to complete this work for our clients.

If we complete a title search and discover an issue that needs to be cleared, (for example, if someone has passed away and still has his or her name on a title), we can do all of the probate work here, too, as well as issue the new title.

We pride ourselves on offering these services so you do not have to go to multiple places. We can handle it all for:

  • 1031 exchanges
  • Buyers
  • Sellers
  • Commercial real estate
