Florida Real Property Sales Transactions covers all the issues a practitioner is likely to encounter when involved in a real property sales transaction in Florida: from the initial attorney-client discussion about clauses in a contract for sale and purchase, to the documents required at a closing, as well as most points in between.

Highlights of the New Edition include:

  • Updated rules, statutes, and recent case law.
  • New material on remote online notarizations and closings, and using escrows to address conflicts between sellers and buyers.
  • New forms, including the FR/FB Contract (FR/FB-5x) and Comprehensive Riders (CR-5x), and the FR Contract for Residential Sale and Purchase (CRSP-16) and CRSP-16 Addenda.
  • Rewrites of sections on land trusts, REITs, vesting of title, trustee conveyances, the BTIITF, and possibility of reverter.
  • Updates on the obligations of personal representatives, and express and implied covenants
  • Elaboration on mortgage guarantees, LIBOR, conditions precedent to closing, conveyances, homesteads, elective share, property descriptions, title insurance, and ownership for same-sex couples.
  • Expanded coverage on protecting commissions in commercial sales, buyers' rights, easements, licenses, and restrictive covenants.
  • Clarification of terms and case descriptions.
