Sarasota, Florida Real Estate Transactions, Estate Planning, and Commercial Litigation

Residential and Commercial Real Property Transactions across Southwest Florida

If you are considering buying or selling residential or commercial real estate, you may believe that you can handle the business or home closing by yourself or that you can rely on your agent or a title company to ensure that all documentation is correct and protects your interests. Because real estate transactions involve extensive paperwork, including numerous contracts, you want to have an experienced attorney to safeguard your rights.

At the law offices of Gibson, Kohl & Wolff, P.L., we handle all matters related to the purchase or sale of commercial real estate in Sarasota and the surrounding communities. Because of our size, we are able to take a highly personalized approach when representing each of our clients. We return all our e-mails and phone calls promptly and work hard to keep you continually advised of the status of your case. Contact our offices to learn how we may assist you.

Our Clients

Though many of our clients are local residents, we also work with many foreign and non-resident purchasers of Florida residential and commercial property, including developers. We have advised many individuals and businesses from outside of the state of Florida who have purchased waterfront property, real estate in golf course communities, and open acreage in the state.

We know from experience that there are many benefits to living and working in Florida. While the beaches and recreational opportunities are second to none, there are also tax benefits to being a Florida resident. Florida has no state personal income tax and no intangibles tax on stocks and bonds. You also enjoy an unlimited homestead protection from creditors and pay no inheritance tax when your estate passes to your heirs.

Our Services

We work with clients at all stages of the purchase or sale of residential and commercial real estate, from the negotiation of terms to the preparation of documents, from the review of title to the closing. We review and prepare all documents necessary to successfully close a real estate transaction, including purchase agreements, deeds, mortgages, notes and financing instruments, restrictive covenants and easements.

A recent trend in property sales is for real estate companies to have their own in-house title companies. In these instances, the buyer is not represented by anyone at the closing unless they hire an attorney. Because all real estate transactions involve a number of contracts and extensive documentation, it is always in your best interests to be represented by counsel when you buy or sell real estate.
