Real Estate

SERVING PALM BEACH, BROWARD & MIAMI-DADE COUNTY

Overview

No two properties are identical, so it stands to reason that no two real estate transactions will be the same. Many people believe that an attorney is an unnecessary expense when buying or selling real estate. The truth is, a lot of things have the potential to go wrong: liens, easements, restrictions, covenants, boundary disputes, title defects, building code violations – just to name a few.  Neither a real estate agent nor a title company has the knowledge or the motivation to identify these potential problems and counsel you accordingly. In these unprecedented times, with short sales, mortgage foreclosures and bank failures, every step of any real estate transaction has the potential for disaster. Considering all the risks, consulting a real estate attorney who knows the intricacies of real property law and is looking out for your best interests is one of the smartest investments you can make in yourself, your business and your family.

We offer a full-service real estate practice, including:

  • Residential
  • Commercial
  • Title Insurance
  • Buyers and Sellers
  • Lenders and Borrowers
  • Refinances
  • Short Sales
  • Mortgage Foreclosure Defense and Prosecution
  • Property Tax Valuation and Exemption Disputes
  • Quiet Title Actions

We are proud agents for Attorneys Title Fund Services (Old Republic National Title Insurance Company) and First American Title Insurance Company, two of Florida's leading title insurance underwriters.

We are a member of ALTA, the American Land Title Association, which is the national trade association of the title insurance industry.

The Minerley Fein Difference

At every step of your transaction, you will have the personal attention, judgment and experience of a real estate attorney, to ensure that your interests are protected.  We are not a title company, and you will not be "handed off” to a real estate paralegal.  From before the contract is signed and continuing after the closing is completed, you will have the watchful eye of a real estate lawyer protecting you from both the seen and unseen perils of any transaction.  Attorneys Andrew (“Drew") Fein and Gail Hamaty-Bird represent buyers & sellers and lenders & borrowers, in all phases of residential and commercial real estate transactions.
