Grant Kehres: Your Florida Attorney
Don’t know how you should take title?
Signed a contract and have a problem?
Title Company dropping the ball?
Legal issue and no representation?
Not sure of your rights?
A title company does not represent you. It only represents the paperwork; consequently, it cannot advise or answer any legal questions you may have. That would be the unauthorized practice of law. Some title companies are lawyer owned, but even in those situations, there remains a conflict of interest between representing you and representing the title underwriter’s interests. A title company can only process the transaction and is not permitted to give you any advice.
In contrast to a title company, only a lawyer can answer all of your questions. Only a lawyer is dedicated to representing your best interests. Most noteworthy, Florida Bar Board Certified Real Estate Lawyer* is allowed under Florida law to be called a “real estate law specialist.”
What does is cost? Usually the same or even less than a title company. We offer title company services, specialized real estate law advice, and unquestioned loyalty to only you for the same or less cost than a title company. Do you need a lawyer? What do you think?
• Board Certification is the highest level of evaluation by The Florida Bar of competency and experience within an area of law, while maintaining professionalism and ethical practices. For more information about Florida Bar Board Certification, visit The Florida Bar website
