Real Estate Transactions and Development / Eminent Domain and Condemnation
We efficiently and effectively handle small and large land transactions from the negotiation of contract terms and conditions, drafting of the contract documents, coordinate due diligence efforts, and close transactions to the satisfaction of all participants. We have represented financiers and can assist with the financing arm of the transaction, including complex alternative financing agreements, such as off-balance sheet purchases and land banking arrangements. The lawyers at QPWB also serve as approved title agents for the largest title underwriting companies in Florida and can provide guidance and counsel relating to title of real property and provide both buyers and lenders title insurance upon closing.
In tough economic times we are also called upon to help with workouts, bankruptcies, foreclosures and restructuring of troubled assets and projects. We have experience on both sides of the table and can assist both the lender and borrower to reach a fair and amicable solution.
In projects ranging from single-use commercial buildings to residential/commercial developments of regional impact, QPWB lawyers assist developers, property owners and investors with developing and entitling residential and commercial projects. We help developers, home builders and contractors negotiate design-build contracts, equipment leases, and sub-contractor agreements. Our lawyers assist with the application and processing permits for approvals relating to on-site stormwater, endangered species, and archeological deposits.
Our lawyers have also represented local governments, as well as property owners, business owners, lessees and mortgagees in eminent domain and condemnation proceedings. We can help evaluate and value pre-suit intentions and help navigate through the process so that our client’s rights are preserved and a fair award is made.
