SOUTH FLORIDA REAL ESTATE LAWYER

FLORIDA “AS IS ” REAL ESTATE CONTRACTS HAVE MANY TERMS AND DATES THAT IF THE BUYER IS NOT CAREFUL, AND NOT REPRESENTED BY A REAL ESTATE LAWYER THAT IS MONITORING THE DEADLINES, YOUR ESCROW DEPOSIT COULD BE PLACED AT RISK.

THE ESCROW DEPOSIT IS THE EARNEST DEPOSIT OR MONEY PUT DOWN ON A CONTRACT TO SECURE THE PROPERTY.  IT IS USED ON ALL REAL ESTATE CONTRACTS AND PLACED IN AN ATTORNEY TRUST ACCOUNT OR REALTOR BROKER ESCROW ACCOUNT AND HELD UNTIL THE END OF THE TRANSACTION.

IF AN AS IS CONTRACT REQUIRES FINANCING, THE FINANCING CLAUSES OF THE REAL ESTATE CONTRACT WILL HAVE SPECIFIC DATES TO APPLY FOR THE LOAN AND TO OBTAIN A CREDIT OR LOAN APPROVAL. IF THE BUYER IS NOT CAREFUL OR IS NOT ADEQUATELY REPRESENTED, MISSING THOSE DATES COULD HAVE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES INCLUDING THE FORFEITING OF YOUR ESCROW DEPOSIT TO THE SELLER.
