Real Estate Contract Drafting and Negotiation

The Law Firm of Leighton J. Hyde, P.A. offers assistance in preparing contracts for the purchase and sale of residential and commercial real estate, contract review, negotiation, and the drafting of clauses specific to a transaction.

Many real estate agents in Florida use the FAR/BAR contract when writing offers to purchase residential real estate for their clients. Sometimes a buyer or seller will negotiate a unique term or event that is not covered by the FAR/BAR contract. We can assist in drafting these clauses so that your clients’ interests are protected and limit the liability to you, the real estate agent. If your client or the other party would like to negotiate some unique terms into the sales contract, call us today for a free consultation. Often for a minimal expense, your buyer or seller can protect their interests in the transaction.

Additionally, we represent buyers and sellers during the purchase and sale of residential and commercial real estate. This includes the review, negotiation and/or drafting of contracts. Although Florida does not mandate attorney involvement in real estate transactions, many states do and your clients may be accustomed to hiring an attorney to represent their interests.

Sometimes contract disputes are unavoidable. Contract disputes may arise over financing contingencies, repair requirements, the condition of title, contract deadlines, or other clauses found in a real estate sales contract. The Law Office of Leighton J. Hyde represents both purchasers and sellers of real estate in contract disputes. If your client is involved in a real estate sales contract dispute, you and your client may call us for a free consultation. We will review the contract and analyze a course of action for your particular situation.

Leighton reviewed and revised a new construction residential contract for my buyers. After receiving Leighton’s recommendations, my buyers were confident in signing the contract and are now looking forward to the building process. I really appreciated his professionalism! In addition to his professionalism, Leighton brings the experience as both an attorney and realtor. I highly recommend Leighton to all of my buyers and fellow realtors.
