Litigating Cases Caused by Unclear Deeds or Mortgages
As an example, when a deed is not clear or a plat is numbered incorrectly, it is possible for a construction project to begin on the wrong piece of property. In some cases, a contractor may want to remedy the problem by switching lots, but this may not be in your best interest if you own the more valuable lot. You can rely on our firm to handle any litigation that arises from this matter. We will protect your rights and work diligently to ensure you receive proper value.
Resolving Plat Map Issues for Florida Property Owners
Many individual investors and businesses own subdivision parcels. In a subdivision, the initial developer will create a map that divides the large parcel into many smaller parcels. This map is called a plat. Plats are relied on for a description of boundaries and other information on the parcels in a subdivision.
From time to time, mistakes are made when creating a Plat. For example, streets or utility easements may not be reflected in their actual location, or a plat may show two lots labeled with the same number, creating confusion.
Our firm can bring an action for reformation of a deed, a mortgage or other instrument, or a plat and provide a defense against such claims.
