If you can no longer afford your home and are hoping to avoid foreclosure, a short sale may be the answer. Short sales are more complicated than a traditional real estate transaction so it’s important to have an experienced attorney representing your interests. At Dell Salter, P.A., we have handled hundreds of short sale negotiations and closings.
We will work with you, your realtor, and your lender to get the short sale approved and negotiate your obligations following the sale.
Real Estate Development and Associations
At Dell Salter, P.A., we also represent real estate developers in their acquisition of property and development of associations and restrictive covenants. After the development has been completed, our firm represents boards of directors for homeowners and condominium associations. We assist clients with the following matters:
- Analysis and Review of Restrictive Covenants
- Advice on Covenant Violations
- Preparation of Declaration of Covenants Documents
- Condominium Association Start-Ups
- Drafting of Association Bylaws, Rules and Regulations
- Association Articles of Incorporation
Our attorneys work statewide with clients who want to convert rental properties into condominiums. We assist with state and county filings, guiding you through the process with the assurance that comes from experience.
We understand that rental property is one of your most important investments and it’s important that you protect that investment and your legal rights. It is imperative that you have a lease agreement drafted that will protect your legal rights and the value of your property.
Many landlords don’t realize they have poor leases until a problem arises. Does your lease address who will be responsible in the event of an insect infestation? What happens if your tenant moves out and leaves property and then tries to make a claim against you? Do you have proper protections to ensure you’ll be able to collect against a deadbeat tenant? We can review your existing documents, discuss your situation and customize any residential or business lease to fit your needs.
