What to disclose to buyers when selling your home

If you have made the decision to sell your Florida home, there are certain things you need to know before moving forward. Selling a home involves much more than just putting a sign in the yard and finding a buyer. As the seller, you would be wise to protect your interests by knowing what you have to do and what you have to tell the buyer about your home.

The seller must tell a prospective buyer certain things about his or her house. Failure to do this can lead to complications down the down, and it may even interfere with the closing. Before you move ahead, you will find it beneficial to learn about required disclosures and what they mean for you.

Navigating the maze of zoning designations

The goal of property zoning is to organize land usage in a way that's efficient and livable.

Title insurance anticipates the unexpected

For most people, their home is their biggest asset. Not only is real estate financially significant, it's more than just a piece of property. It's a personal space in which you create memories, paint walls, plant gardens and raise a family. Unfortunately, even dream homes have defects. Sometimes homeowners don't realize this until years down the road. At this point, title insurance could save the day. 

How do I know if it's time to divorce my spouse?

Every marriage goes through tough times. Whether it means dealing with issues like infertility, finances, in-laws or illness, couples daily fight their ways through, and many make it to the other side stronger and more committed than ever.

However, sometimes a Florida couple is dealing with matters of behavior. If your spouse's actions are causing the conflict in your marriage, you may be fighting an uphill battle and forcing yourself to changes in ways that do not make you comfortable. Such situations may affect your physical and emotional health, and you may find that you spent a lot of energy trying to fix a problem that has no resolution.

Why should you worry about estate planning?

Contrary to what you might think, estate planning can benefit Florida residents of all income levels. Regardless of the size of your estate or the amount of money you have in savings, you have the right to decide what will happen to your property after you pass away.

You may not realize that estate planning involves much more than just deciding what will happen to your property and your money in the future. It can help you determine the intentional distribution of your estate to specific beneficiaries, as well as allow you to outline your wishes for health care. You can even plan for the care of a special needs loved one. You would be prudent to consider how you can benefit from a thoughtful and updated estate plan.

Drafting strong employment contracts to protect your business

Businesses face a myriad of legal challenges, and effectively dealing with employees is one of them. Florida employers may find it beneficial to know how to protect their interests in order to avoid legal complications as much as possible, and one effective way to do this is by drafting thoughtful and thorough employee contracts.

Employee contracts outline your responsibilities as an employer, as well as the responsibilities of the individuals who work for you. By specifically spelling out certain things, both sides can clearly understand and acknowledge obligations and rights. A well-worded employment contract can be beneficial for both parties, as well as help you avoid unnecessary legal disputes with employees.
