Senior named shareholder Andrew B. Blasi oversees the Firm’s real estate litigation practice group, which includes shareholder Andrew M. Dector.
This practice group is focused on the litigation of all types of litigation based upon real property and real estate deals gone bad. The group devotes a large part of their practice to representing and assisting buyers in pre-construction real property contracts seeking to revoke or rescind the sales contract, to recover deposits paid by the buyers to sellers/developers and to recover any other damages the buyers have incurred where builders or developers have failed to comply with the requirements of the law, most notably the Federal Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act and the Florida Condominium Act. With an overabundance of condos and houses on the market and values plummeting, the group continues to represent and assist buyers in demanding and getting refunds of their deposits along with damages against developers who have failed to conduct their business in a legally appropriate or required manner.
The firm is experienced in and handles all areas of real estate litigation, including:
- Partition claims
- Breach of real estate contracts
- Specific Performance of real estate contracts
- Fraud claims involving the sale and purchase of real property
- Consumer protection laws, including violations of Florida’s Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices Act and the Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act
- Florida’s Condominium Act claims
The real estate litigation practice group handles cases in federal and state court, including appeals if necessary.
