Hiring one attorney is tough enough, financially and otherwise, but hiring two attorneys, a Broward County Probate attorney and a Real Estate Lawyer, for a single matter – that’s downright painful! And yet, I am often contacted by clients whose attorneys have opened probate on their behalf, but have advised them to consult a separate real estate attorney to manage those transactions they are not competent to handle themselves (or vice versa).
You can spare yourself this predicament by ensuring that your lawyer is experienced in both practice areas, Broward Probate and real estate, even if you don’t think your case involves both. Why? The fields of probate and real estate law are necessarily intertwined – for example, where real estate is inherited under a Will or Florida’s intestacy statute or where you are buying real estate from a probate estate. If you fail to hire an experienced probate and real estate attorney in these situations, you could run into a number of difficulties, including but not limited to estate tax liabilities or chain of title issues, in the long run.
If you would like to discuss your case, please feel free to contact me, a Broward Real Estate Attorney and Probate Lawyer, by email, or call me at (954) 458-8655 and I will be happy to answer your questions. I offer a free initial consultation.
