Whether it is commercial or residential, real estate is a complex area of the law. If you are selling or purchasing property, you need an attorney who has the experience and knowledge to handle the transactions.
Real experience in Florida real estate
Daytona Beach attorney, Jerry B. Wells, PL has assisted clients in real estate dealings for fourty-one (41) years. He has written over a billion dollars in title insurance representing clients in residential and commericial closings. Mr. Wells currently represents clients in complex real estate matters such as:
Commercial real estate
Commercial real estate can take many forms, including—
- Purchasing a large tract of land to develop a subdivision
- Purchasing an office building to remodel
- Purchasing a small tract of land to build a strip center
One of Jerry Wells, PL's most active areas is representing sellers of motels. The motels on the beach are purchased in groups of twos and threes to be demolished to allow the development of condominium towers.
In addition to representing buyers and sellers of land and business, Jerry Wells also represents buyers and sellers of automobile dealerships. He has handled eight of these transactions in the past few years.
Jerry Wells, PL's largest recent commercial transaction was the sale of First Bank of Jacksonville, Florida. He negotiated the price of the sale for the seller and represented the majority stockholder through each phase of the transaction through closing.
Residential real estate
Attorney Jerry B. Wells has written over one billion dollars of title insurance through "The Fund."
Most of these residential contracts are on The Florida Bar/Board of Realtors contract form. This form divides up the expenses and duties of a residential closing in a generally fair way between buyers and sellers, allowing the residential buyer the opportunity to examine the house and property in many different ways:
- The buyer can have all appliances and equipment checked to see if they operate correctly. If an appliance does not work, the contract dictates who is responsible for repairing it.
- The buyer can also write in any unusual inspection the buyer wishes to perform.
- The contract provides for most every common inspection a buyer would want to perform. These inspections are performed at the buyer's expense.
Real estate litigation in Florida
Adding to the complexity of real estate law, questions about land ownerships and property transactions often involve other areas of law such as:
- Mortgage foreclosure
- Construction liens
- Fraud and misrepresentation
- Real property disputes in probate court
These are not issues you can handle on your own or put in the hands of an inexperienced lawyer. To achieve the best possible outcome, you need the best possible representation. That is what Jerry B. Wells, Attorney and Counselor at Law provides.
