TAX DEEDS AND QUIET TITLES IN FLORIDA

TAX DEEDS AND QUIET TITLES

After your Tax Deed purchase, you will want to profit from your investment as quickly as possible. That is why its very important to contact us to start the Quiet Title action on your Tax Deed as soon as it is issued.

Title insurance underwriters will rarely issue title insurance coverage for property acquired via Tax Deed without a quiet title action, and you should be wary of companies purporting to "insure" or "certify" property without a quiet title.

Whether you want to sell your Tax Deed investment or refinance property acquired via Tax Deed, a quiet title is a must and can prevent painful future litigation.

QUICK SEARCHES - KNOW BEFORE YOU BID AT TAX DEED SALES AND FORECLOSURE SALES

For a flat fee, our attorneys conduct a quick 24 hour pre-sale review of the sale you want to bid at. We can let you know of possible challenges and title errors you'll need corrected before your title is insurable.

FORECLOSURE SALES - CHALLENGES

Foreclosure Sales Image

You're the successful bidder at foreclosure, but now you must wait 10 days before you can get your certificate of title. What could possibly happen?

The bank got paid off the afternoon before the sale but no one cancelled it. Unknown third parties file objections to the sale. The judgment listed the neighbor's property address.

Whatever happened, our real estate attorneys have years of experience representing bidders at foreclosures when something goes wrong.

Contact us the moment you learn that someone has challenged your purchase or that you've made a mistake in your bid.

AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE - WRITS OF POSSESSION

You've received your Certificate of Title from the Clerk but, the "tenant" or debtor remains in possession and refuses to let you into your property.

As soon as possession is challenged, you must contact us so that we can get a Writ of Possession issued in your favor. Do not make the mistake of filing a separate eviction action, contact us .

AFTER THE FORECLOSURE SALE - ERROR IN THE LEGAL, MISSED LIENS

In a perfect world, the Certificate of Title you get at a foreclosure sale is ready to insure.

In reality, your Certificate of Title may have an error in the legal description, or the lender/homeowner's association missed naming an inferior lienholder in the action.

Contact us as soon as you learn that there is an error which can prevent you from selling the property, refinancing it, or getting title insurance.

We have nearly a decade of experience in reforeclosures, corrections of scriveners errors, and similar post-foreclosure ordeals.
