The closing process begins with the signing of a contract. An experienced real estate lawyer can draft the contract for you to be sure that it protects you. Many times the contract is drafted by a real estate agent. In that case, you should be try to have the contract reviewed by Florida real estate attorney, Nick Kanelidis. Changes that are made before the contract is signed may save you a lot of time and money later.

Title Insurance

Title insurance is important, as it protects you against loss from defects in your title. In all closings that we do, title insurance is issued to the buyer. If you are getting a mortgage, the lender will require a title insurance policy to insure that there are no other mortgages or liens that come ahead of the lender. Since the lender requires such lender's title insurance, it makes even more sense for the buyer to obtain owner's title insurance, since the second policy does not cost much more. Mr. Kanelidis understands title insurance and real estate law in Florida. He is the co-owner of a title company, Blue Marlin Title Insurance Corporation, which can provide all title insurance and other closing needs.

The Closing

At closing, the closings documents are all signed in accordance with real estate law in Florida. These documents include the deed and all loan documents, such as the note and mortgage. Also, the balance of the purchase price is paid by the buyer, all closing expenses are paid, and the net proceeds of the sale are paid to the seller. Mr. Kanelidis personally handles all his own closings, so he will be able to assist you at the closing and throughout the process leading up to the closing.


We can draft Quit Claim deeds or other deeds that you may need, even if there is no closing involved. Many times deeds are signed to add someone to title or to remove someone from title. We can discuss issues of real estate law in Florida involved with such deeds, such as the possible effect upon the homestead tax exemption or upon your mortgage.


We can help you with litigation and court matters involving issues of real estate law in Florida, such as contract or closing disputes or foreclosures. The cost of such representation depends on the nature of the case, so call us so we may discuss the case with you.
