Residential and Commercial Real Estate Law

Weiss, Handler & Cornwell, P.A., has practiced real estate law in Boca Raton for over 35 years, and has earned the reputation as one of South Florida's leading real estate firms. Our attorneys are trusted by our clients to facilitate both residential and complex commercial real estate transactions.

  • Residential transactions: The purchase or sale of a home is still one of the most important decisions one can make — and in today's economy, having a real estate lawyer is just as important as having a real estate agent. We provide our clients with prompt, professional service that can result in savings of both time and money. We also make sure documents and contracts are properly drafted, working to help our clients prevent surprises and manage them if they do occur. Our attorneys can even save our clients money by helping them file a tax appeal to try to lower their tax costs.
  • Commercial transactions: Owning, renting, or investing in a commercial property can be a complicated affair. Our experienced attorneys can reduce the amount of time and money spent in the purchase, sale, or lease of a property, allowing you to focus on running your business. We offer a comprehensive list of services to our commercial real estate clients — including facilitating the purchase or sale of property, drafting construction and development contracts, negotiating retail or commercial leases, securing agricultural classification for property, and navigating complex zoning laws.

Experienced representation can protect your interests in every step of a real estate transaction. We assist our clients through the preparation and review of each real estate agreement, including purchase and sale agreements, land surveys, deed restrictions, financing documents, and closing documents. Only with the help of experienced legal counsel can you be confident in both the property you are purchasing and the transaction process to acquire it.

Our firm does not take a cookie-cutter approach to creating these agreements. Rather, we work to ensure the unique needs of our clients and their projects are fully protected. If you have been asked to sign a development agreement or wish to have one created, contact our office online or call 888-361-6745.
