Experienced Real Estate Attorney
For anyone involved, a real estate dispute can be costly and time-consuming. Losing a claim – whether you are on the offensive or are defending against a legal claim – can be catastrophic for an individual or business. When a real estate dispute arises, it is critical to have an experienced real estate lawyer who can provide exceptional counsel and advocacy to protect your interests.
At Haft Law Group in West Palm Beach, we represent businesses, individuals, developers and various lending institutions in all types of Florida real estate disputes. Our lead attorney, Scott R. Haft, has more than a decade of experience handling complex real estate issues that require legal experience and knowledge of the real estate industry. Our background in adversarial proceedings includes trials before judges and juries as well as alternative dispute resolution forums such as nonbinding mediation and binding arbitration. While we have had success resolving disputes outside the courtroom, we are fully prepared to try any case in state or federal court.
We Can Handle Your Issue
Our firm focuses on the most complex real estate disputes and litigation matters, including:
- Construction claims, such as latent defect disputes, breach of contract and fraud
- Misrepresentation in purchase and sale contracts and lease agreements
- Recission of contract when a party enters into a real estate agreement due to coercion, duress or fraudulent misrepresentation of the facts
- Property insurance disputes, including fraudulent claims and bad faith denials of legitimate claims
- Property tax assessments
In Florida, it is important to recognize that Sellers of their home have a duty to disclose known latent defects. The Florida Supreme Court in Johnson v. Davis established this legal standard and Attorney Haft has taken these types of cases to trial.
In most cases, we are able to represent either party. We can represent the property owner or the construction company in a construction dispute, the lessor or lessee in a lease agreement, the insurance company or the insurance policyholder in an insurance claim, et cetera.
