Handling The Full Range Of Real Estate Matters For Our South Florida Clients

The purchase of a home, a condominium or commercial real estate represents a significant investment for all parties involved. At the Law Office of Kimberly A. Abrams & Associates, P.A., in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we focus entirely on transactional real estate law.

Since 2000, we have provided buyers, sellers, borrowers and lenders/investors with legal advice and representation in matters ranging from for sale by owner (FSBO) transactions, sale/purchase and refinance closings, title insurance, title/lien searches and the drafting of real estate documents. Additionally we offer our clients legal advice and representation in the area of loss mitigation/foreclosure prevention, which includes loan modifications, short sales, and deeds in lieu of foreclosure.

Residential and commercial real estate closings: From the drafting of the contract, the ordering of inspections, examination of title and lien search reports, and coordinating with lenders in anticipation of closing to the actual closing and the writing of the title insurance, we handle all aspects of a real estate transaction — even those that occur after hours, off-site or by mail. We represent buyers, borrowers and sellers.

If you are purchasing, selling or refinancing a home, investment property, rental property or commercial property, we can facilitate the closing, serve as your legal counsel or both.

For sale by owner (FSBO) transactions: Selling your house without a real estate agent has advantages and disadvantages. Even though you may be saving the cost of a commission with an FSBO sale, you still need an experienced legal professional to guide you through the more complex aspects of your real estate transaction so that your interests are fully protected.

Drafting real estate documents: We draft or review purchase and sale agreements, residential and commercial lease agreements, quit claim deeds, warranty deeds, financing documents, 1031 exchanges and any and all other related real estate contracts and documents. From the creation of those vital documents to the final closing, you can benefit from our extensive experience.

Underwriting services: In addition to transactional matters and closing issues, we provide title insurance underwriting services through Old Republic National Title Insurance Company. Old Republic National Title is one of the oldest and largest national title insurance underwriters and it consistently earns honors as one of the highest rated title insurers in the United States by Standard & Poor’s, Duff & Phelps, Moody’s, A.M. Best, LACE Financial Corporation and Demotech, Inc..

Title work: We pride ourselves on our attention to detail when it comes to title work. Our experienced underwriters perform thorough searches to expose any outstanding liens or problems related to the chain of title so that you are assured of receiving clear title.

Loan modifications: Our office can advise and/or represent you in applying for and obtaining a loan modification. If you are having difficulty in meeting your financial obligations to your lender, you may qualify to have your monthly payment significantly reduced.
