South Florida Mortgage Law & Real Estate Financing

Buying a home or a commercial property can be one of the biggest investments a person ever makes. While a lot of time is spent finding the right property at the right price, that is only half the battle.

The next battle comes when working out the particulars of a given mortgage. A South Florida real estate attorney can help with this important negotiation and get you the best terms possible.

Let Schecter Law Review the Terms

The terms of real estate financing are as important as the terms of the acquisition.

We use our extensive experience to assist clients in negotiating and obtaining loan documents from the lender with the best possible terms for our clients.

Because even a small change in an interest rate can result in a difference of tens of thousands of dollars over the life of a mortgage, it is very beneficial to have a South Florida real estate lawyer review the terms before you sign the agreement. Since a borrower may have little experience negotiating the terms of a financing agreement, they are at the mercy of the lender when it comes to finalizing the terms of a loan.

The expertise of Schecter Law can level the playing field, ensuring that you get the best possible terms for your mortgage.

Not only can the interest rate be negotiated but so can the upfront costs depending on what you need as a borrower.

  • Some people may want a mortgage with more points to lower their interest rate
  • Some would rather pay less up front and pay more throughout the loan when they are on more secure financial footing.

Our South Florida real estate attorneys can negotiate the terms you want to find a mortgage that meets your financial demands.
