Commercial real estate
Our commercial real estate practice encompasses all types of transactions for sellers, buyers, tenants, developers, and construction companies.
Financing and loans: We work with numerous financial institutions on various stages of the loan process, including discussions with the client and borrower, drafting the commitment letters, researching collateral requirements, preparing loan documentation and closing the loan.
Titles and closings: We research and clear titles so that risk is minimized for buyers and sellers.
Sale-leasebacks: We help commercial real estate owners sell and then lease back their properties for the long-term as a tool for financing or paying back debts.
Ground leases: We help arrange ground leases for owners of property or people wishing to rent and develop land over the long term.
Construction administration: We have experience as both advisors and advocates in representing developers, owners, and general contractors. Our attorneys assist clients in promoting better oversight, control and decision-making for clients before, during and after the construction process. In addition, we offer clients practical and cost-effective solutions for dealing with the construction lien law of Florida.
1031 like-kind exchanges: We help sellers of commercial or investment property defer taxes by using the proceeds of sales for investments in “Like-Kind” property.
Assisting buyers and sellers of residential real estate
Buying a home is one of the largest purchases—and investments—that most people make. Likewise, when owners sell their home for personal or financial reasons, they understandably hope that the transaction will proceed as smoothly as possible.
At Lyons & Lyons, we assist homebuyers and homeowners by carefully reviewing sale contracts, title insurance documents, and mortgages before they are signed. If you are selling property, we can assist you by ensuring that you have minimized exposure to liability through proper disclosure of all relevant information pertaining to your property.
We also cooperate with title insurance companies in examination and resolution of all types of matters that affect title to real property so that purchasers feel confident and secure before closing.
