Do you have questions about Florida real estate law?


With the state's history of early 20th-century real estate scams and unusually large population of seasonal homeowners, Florida real estate law poses some unique challenges for individuals.


The Sunshine State also hosts more gated and deeded communities – with their challenging homeowner association statutes – than most states. When it comes to real estate attorneys, Florida has more need of them than most states.


Common questions about Florida property laws involved homesteading, which allows full-time residents to gain a property tax discount. Others often relate to division of Florida property in the event of a death, or whether an HOA is permitted to take certain actions.


Florida even includes unique statutes regarding golf ball damage to property, due to the large number of golf course communities.


Whatever your question or problem, the Experts at JustAnswer are available to help without an appointment or costly hourly fees. You can even ask follow-up questions, and approve payment only when you're completely satisfied.

Common Florida real estate questions resolved on JustAnswer


Because of Florida's unique challenges with property, it can be confusing trying to decide which course to take in a real estate dispute. Sometimes you even need advice from a lawyer on whether to formally pursue a legal case.


Whatever your need, you can get peace of mind quickly by consulting with a verified Expert in Florida real estate law on JustAnswer.com without making an appointment and paying an hourly fee.


To get the most out of a consultation with an Expert on JustAnswer.com, you should have the following information ready, preferably written down. Sometimes you'll want to copy and paste from a computer document into JustAnswer's question fields to make the consultation go more smoothly:


  • Exact location of the property
  • Relevant dates of ownership, rental agreement or court hearings
  • Whether you're a seasonal or full-time property owner
  • Facts about actual owners, renters or mortgage holders
