This includes the capacity to hold interests in real property, permissible interests in real property, relations between owners, relations between owners and the community, landlord and tenant relations, the transfer of interests in real property, and real property financing, including deeds and mortgages. Real estate transactions, such as purchases, sales, and leases, are governed by a wide body of federal and state law, and the requirements established by state law often differ from state to state.
Florida residential real estate includes many types of housing. These categories include: Attached / multi-unit dwellings, Apartment, Multi-family house, Terraced house, Condominium, Semi-detached dwellings, Duplex, Single-family detached home, Portable dwellings, Mobile homes, Houseboats, and others.We also deal with legal issues pertaining or arising from transactions with Homeowner Associations. A Home Owners’ Association (HOA) is a legal entity that governs a subdivision, condominium or town home development, or planned community. HOA membership is mandatory for all property owners within the development. The HOA is run by a board, which is bound by the HOA bylaws, and board positions are filled by election or appointment. The HOA collects a fee assessment from all owners to maintain common areas, address legal and safety issues, and enforce restrictions that are applicable to that particular residential area. Often homeowners having financial difficulty will fall behind in their payments to their HOA and are often taken by surprise by the legal and financial ramifications that occur. We urge you to act immediately on these matters.

Buying and selling your house is the largest financial event of your life. How can you protect your investment? Most people understand the need for homeowners or hazard insurance to protect against fire or theft. However, defects in the title of your home may pose an even greater risk to your investment. Your home ownership may be threatened.
Title Insurance is your only protection against loss or damage from any claims of ownership against the title to your property. There are basically two types of title insurance policies – the Owner’s policy and the Lender’s policy. The Owner’s policy protects the buyers equity in the property up to the purchase price. The Lender’s policy protects the lender’s interest in the property.
Every home and sale is unique and, occasionally, things go wrong. With Gibraltar Title & Escrow by your side, there is a team of lawyers, closing professionals, and experienced staff to ensure that we resolve issues before they become problems.
