Gainesville Office – Local, Innovative, and Comprehensive Legal Representation With the Backing of a Statewide Firm

In July 2007, Attorney Adam Towers opened the Gainesville, Florida, office of Bogin, Munns & Munns.

“Many Gainesville residents are familiar with Bogin, Munns & Munns because of their advertising, but they don’t realize that most of the team members in our Gainesville office are longtime local residents who are heavily invested in the community,” says Attorney Adam Towers.

The Gainesville office works with hundreds of clients each year on business and real estate matters, litigation, probate, and estate planning, personal injury, and many other areas of the law. Our goal is to provide efficient local legal service with the additional expertise and resources of a statewide firm.

We are located less than a mile south of the intersection of NW 39th Avenue and NW 43rd Street.  Take the I-75 exit for NW 39th Avenue from the north or West Newberry Road from the south.

Real Estate Lawyers Specializing in Commercial and Residential Issues

Real estate is an essential part of the Florida economy. Whether you are a large developer or simply buying a home, you want qualified legal representatives well-versed in real estate law.

The Bogin, Munns & Munns real estate attorneys in Gainesville handle virtually all aspects of real estate law. We represent a wide variety of real estate companies, including developers, builders, contractors, lenders, and title insurance companies. We also represent owners of shopping centers, hotels, office buildings, and citrus and agricultural lands. In addition to commercial real estate transactions, we handle contracts and closings for home buyers and sellers.

Representation of landlords and tenants of all commercial uses is integral to our real estate practice.

Our attorneys also represent clients in land use and water approval processes, including:

  • Comprehensive plan amendments
  • Zoning
  • Plat approvals
  • Developments of Regional Impact
  • Sector Plans
  • Annexations
  • Matters involving local or state governments

Why You Want a Gainesville Real Estate Lawyer

Florida real estate law is complex and often difficult to understand if you haven’t spent years studying it. As a prospective homeowner, a home seller, or a busy business owner, you don’t have the time to dive deep into the specifics of real estate law. Instead, you want a skilled and experienced Gainesville real estate attorney who knows how to represent your interests.

Foreclosure defense, assistance with loan modification, drafting landlord-tenant agreements, and a host of other legal services are much easier when you have knowledgeable legal counsel on your side. The danger of moving forward with real estate transactions without an attorney includes hefty fines and expenses. You might also wind up paying much more in taxes than you should!

Hiring the Gainesville, Florida, real estate lawyers at Bogin, Munns & Munns can save you time, energy, and money by ensuring that your contracts are sound and you make good business decisions.

Commonly Asked Questions About Real Estate Law

Even after thoroughly reviewing your legal options, you still might have questions about the real estate litigation process. Some questions that we frequently get from prospective clients include: 

Do I Have to File a Lawsuit to Settle My Case?

Whether you have to file a lawsuit depends on your situation. Bogin, Munns & Munns can often settle real estate disputes through negotiations. This involves filling out the correct paperwork, managing any disputes, and applying state law to your case. 

If we can’t negotiate an agreement, we may consider filing a lawsuit to secure what you need. You don’t have to worry about this, however. Our trial attorneys call the courtroom their “home away from home.” You can expect them to handle everything your lawsuit requires. 

Can You Help Me With Rental or Leasing Agreements?

Absolutely. If you’re hoping to rent or lease property to another party, we can draw up a contract that clearly outlines: 

  • When payment is due 
  • What happens when payments are missed
  • The duration of the lease 
  • What occupants cannot do on the premises
  • Whether the building allows animals 

A clearly outlined rental or leasing agreement will prevent problems from arising in the future. 

Can a Lawyer from Our Team Help With Foreclosure?

If you own property, and it’s going to be foreclosed on, you don’t have to start packing your bags just yet. There are plenty of options for avoiding eviction or losing your property. 

For instance, filing for certain chapters of bankruptcy puts a “stay” on some of your financial obligations, giving you more time to gather the necessary funds. Alternatively, loan modification could also grant you additional options. 

What Are Our Real Estate Practice Areas?

We help people in Orlando with cases involving: 

  • Residential property. This refers to houses, condos, townhomes, and apartments. 
  • Commercial property. This generally refers to office space or retail stores. 
  • Industrial property. This refers to properties with factories, warehouses, and manufacturing plants. 

We also help people with “raw land,” or property that hasn’t yet been developed. We also help those managing agricultural lands. 

Can I Be Evicted?

Whether you can be lawfully evicted depends on the details of your lease agreement. Generally, the property owner can evict anyone who violates the terms of the lease. For instance, if you unlawfully subleased property to another individual, and this is prohibited in your lease agreement, this could be grounds for eviction. 

Our law firm can examine the reasons for your eviction and take action accordingly. We will protect your legal rights.

Frequently Asked Questions

A living will is a legal written document expressing the author’s wishes in particular medical situations, such as a critical injury and/or terminal illness.  Living wills may be used to instruct medical professionals with regard to the usage of various life-support methods.  These methods are meant to sustain (or possibly extend) the life of the person, but will not improve the health of the person on their own.

A living will lets a person clearly state their wishes in regard to being kept alive by machines such as ventilators and heart-lung machines, and to make the decision if they want intravenous devices used to feed them (“tube feeding”). Living wills only apply in situations where using such treatments as life-support machinery may keep a person alive for a short while, and not using the treatments would result in the person’s death.  A living will would not impact treatment in medical situations not involving life-threatening conditions (such as a routine medical procedure).

The decision as to whether a person is in a situation where they would need life-support methods is made by the medical professionals in charge of the person’s care.

An important benefit of a revocable trust is the ability to remove assets and terminate the trust at any time without any penalties. With an irrevocable trust, even if a person names themselves the trustee with access to the assets, they will not have the ability to regain ownership of the assets. All assets will be owned by the trust.

Of course! If you have suffered injuries due to another party’s negligence, you are entitled to compensation regardless of the stage of your recovery. The compensation may be limited to economic damages only depending on the nature of the case.
