From sales and leases of commercial property to subdivision development to mobile home park conversions, Florida Real Property Complex Transactions provides practical, step-by-step guidance for negotiating and drafting the necessary documents to complete these multifaceted transactions. A discussion of federal and state laws governing these complex transactions includes the impact of sales taxes, intangible taxes, and documentary stamp taxes. The manual contains countless sample provisions and forms, along with checklists and practice pointers to ensure that all significant issues have been considered in these complex transactions. The 2020 edition of this manual is an invaluable asset for all real estate transaction lawyers.

Highlights of the Tenth Edition include:

  • Substantially revised Chapter 1 (Drafting and Negotiating Purchase and Sale Contracts), providing updated form language and discussion of drafting and negotiating purchase and sale contracts.
  • Updated discussion of the sustainability of brick-and-mortar shopping centers.
  • New Chapter 3 (Hotels, Motels, Restaurants, and Marinas), including new sample Hotel Purchase and Sale Agreement.
  • Discussion of the 2019 Amendments to the Community Planning Act, expanding the ability of local governments to adopt small-scale comprehensive plan amendments by eliminating the annual restriction on such amendments to those affecting an aggregate of 120 acres of land or less, and prohibiting local governments from adopting comprehensive plans and land development regulations that impair the rights of developers pursuant to orders already in place.
  • Discussion of new requirement that an instrument being signed in the presence of two subscribing witnesses may be satisfied by witnesses being present and electronically signing by means of audio-video communication technology.
  • New Option to Extend provision for a lease.
