Understanding Residential Real Estate

The real estate market is complex, with various types of property and land, along with numerous necessary transactions and potential disputes. The four primary types of real estate are:

  1. Commercial real estate
  2. Industrial real estate
  3. Land
  4. Residential real estate

Residential real estate addresses property used for residential purposes. It is one of the broader areas of real estate. Residential real estate attorneys handle unique complications when transactions or disputes take place. Specifically, residential real estate lawyers in Florida can help with any legal matter involving a:

  • Single-family home, 
  • Condo, 
  • Cooperative, 
  • Duplex, 
  • Townhome, 
  • Tiny house, 
  • Vacation home, or 
  • Multi-family residence with fewer than five individual units. 

If you have any questions about a residential real estate transaction, you should contact the Emmanuel Sheppard & Condon Pensacola residential real estate lawyers as soon as possible.

When and Why You May Need Pensacola Residential Real Estate Lawyers

There is a misconception that individuals and families contact Pensacola residential real estate attorneys only when buying or selling their home. A substantial portion of the practice at Emmanuel Sheppard & Condon involves home purchases. These transactions are undoubtedly significant for most and an essential part of residential real estate law.

However, there are many other circumstances where you need a residential real estate attorney. Our residential real estate lawyers represent parties involved in Florida transactions and disputes related to residential real estate and: 

  • Homeowner associations (HOA),
  • Zoning issues, 
  • Variance,
  • Land Use and Environmental Matters
  • Permits,
  • Mortgages (foreclosures, fraud, etc.),
  • Transfer of deeds and titles with several buyers and sellers,
  • Verification and Evaluation of title, Quiet Title Actions, and other title concerns,
  • Liens,
  • Covenants, 
  • Florida purchases while the party resides out of the state or country, and
  • Simple home sales and acquisitions.

Our Pensacola residential real estate attorneys know the real estate laws that will impact these scenarios and will negotiate on your behalf. In doing so, they will ensure transactions are completed legally and will work to settle disputes in their clients’ best interests. 

Non-Legal Professionals Cannot Do the Job of a Residential Real Estate Attorney

In residential real estate, there are various professionals involved in any given dispute or transaction. However, none can do the job of an experienced, licensed Pensacola residential real estate attorney. In your current real estate dispute/real estate transaction, you may be involved with many professionals, including but not limited to:

  • Title company representatives; 
  • Legal clerks and other municipal employees;
  • Bankers and other lenders;
  • Real estate agents;
  • Surveyors;
  • Contractors;
  • Home Inspectors;
  • HOA representatives; and
  • Appraisers.

Each of these groups serves very specific purposes. However, most are not licensed to practice law and cannot ever give legal advice. It’s also important to understand that their jobs may not be to specifically advocate for your residential real estate interests.

Sometimes people engaged in residential real estate disputes believe that someone who has been in a similar situation has sufficient knowledge to guide them. Your situation is unique and requires its own legal analysis by a residential real estate lawyer.
