After the Sale- I can’t get Possession, No Access

After you acquire your Certificate of Title or Tax Deed from the Clerk of Court, you may find that the prior owners or prior tenants refuse to give you possession of your new property. Contact us quickly so that we can assess your case and determine what motion for possession is adequate for your case. It is important that you do not waive your rights to possession of the property by entering into any oral or written agreements with those individuals who are refusing to leave. Always call an real estate attorney before agreeing to anything with occupants. Watch my video on tenants in foreclosed properties.

You may buy foreclosed property and later discover that it was landlocked, or you buy with the knowledge that your parcel is landlocked. The most common easement filings are implied easements, which arise from common prior ownership, and easement by way of necessity, where there is no prior common ownership but where the Florida Statutes have created special occasions where easements are necessary, and the courts will grant access through one of the neighboring parcels. Contact us so that we can assist you in determining and establishing your access rights.
