Gainesville Office – Local Representation Backed by a Statewide Firm

In July 2007 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. We are knowledgeable in 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, having qualified legal representatives is a huge plus. Our real estate team is well-versed in all areas of 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 an integral part of our real estate practice. There are many pitfalls in what may be presented as a “standard form lease” and competent representation by an experienced attorney well-versed in leasing matters is essential to big and small clients alike.

Real Estate Is More Than Buying and Selling

In addition to buying and selling properties, real estate development requires a good base knowledge of zoning requirements, local government, environmental impact, and more.

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.

Leasing, licensing, permitting, and all of the fine details of real estate transactions can be overwhelming. Working with a Gainesville real estate lawyer will give you peace of mind and the knowledge that everything will be handled professionally.

From Zoning to Homeowners Associations

You can call upon us to provide guidance or services in matters related to homeowners associations, environmental laws and regulations, and Small Business Administration (SBA) loans. Our Central Florida law firm is your source for all real estate legal services from planning and representation to land development and closings.

Our attorneys are even able to offer real estate brokerage services. As your Gainesville real estate lawyer, we can provide you with innovative legal services such as:

  • Licensure assistance
  • Fiduciary duty advice
  • Escrow dispute advice

Commercial Real Estate Ventures Made Easy

Residential real estate is complex and commercial ventures are even more so. When you are preparing to complete the closing process it makes sense to have a commercial real estate attorney with you. Some of the things they can assist with include:

  • Drafting and reviewing contracts to ensure your interests, including revisions and negotiations
  • Working through the necessary steps of due diligence
  • Verifying financial contracts
  • Conducting a title search and ensuring that all title and survey matters are handled satisfactorily
  • Acting as a closing agent and title agent to protect your legal rights during the entire transaction

Whatever your needs are in a commercial real estate transaction, our Gainesville real estate team can help.

Developing Real Estate in Gainesville

Sometimes you can’t find just the right building for your business or home so you decide to build. Our real estate team can help with the entire process from beginning to grand opening. Some of the areas we assist with include:

  • Development agreements including permits and land-use designations
  • Site selection, acquisition, permitting, and preparation
  • Construction, completion, and operation

Our attorneys work with local officials to make sure that everything from assessment to zoning is covered for you.

Residential Property Management

If you work with residential property management, having a Gainesville real estate attorney on your team will make every transaction smooth. Whether you are buying a property to rent out or already own one or more, an attorney can help in many areas, including:

  • Title research for existing liens or property defects
  • Preparing documents
  • Assistance with necessary payments including commissions and taxes
  • Closing on sales
  • Contracting and lease generation

Suppose you own a property and paid a contractor to rehab it for you and they skipped town with your down payment. An attorney on your team can help. Suppose you had a tenant that completely demolished your property before moving. Although homeowners’ insurance should cover the damages, a lawyer may help the insurance company approve claims faster when they stall.

For Sale by Owner Transactions

Whether you are buying or selling, For Sale By Owner (FSBO) transactions can be confusing for many people. Residential real estate transactions require many details, including:

  • Contract reviews
  • Contract composition
  • Closing

Whether you just need advice or support, or for a Gainesville real estate lawyer to handle the entire process, we can help.  Make sure that your FSBO transaction is completed in accordance with all applicable laws and that your contracts are solid. Whether you are buying or selling, having a Gainesville real estate lawyer on your team is a solid addition.

Why You Need a Gainesville Real Estate Lawyer

Florida real estate law can be complex and is often difficult to understand. Our real estate team has spent years studying it. As a prospective homeowner, a home seller, or a busy business owner, you don’t need to dive deep into the specifics of real estate law. Instead, a skilled and experienced Gainesville real estate attorney can help 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 is that you can incur hefty fines and expenses. You might also wind up paying much more in taxes than you should!

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.
