Residential Closings

From the drafting of a contract to the closing, Reed Mawhinney & Link can protect your interests throughout the entire real estate purchase and sale process. The firm also has two authorized title insurance agents, so your entire transaction can be handled in one office. Pretty nice deal.

Commercial Closings

Reed Mawhinney & Link has extensive experience in closing commercial real estate transactions. Commercial closings come with specific issues not generally seen in residential closings. So, be sure your legal counsel has the know-how to tackle commercial transactions effectively and efficiently.

Homeowners' Associations

Reed Mawhinney & Link represents numerous Homeowners’ Associations throughout Central Florida. We can help interpret your governing documents, including your HOA bylaws and deed restrictions, assist with board and member meetings, and help collect past due association dues. Your neighborhood and property value is important, so be sure your HOA is properly represented.

Eminent Domain

Simply put, eminent domain is the right of a government or its agent to “take” private property for public use, with payment of compensation. If you find yourself involved in an eminent domain situation, allow the attorneys of Reed Mawhinney & Link to ensure you receive just compensation for the “taking” of your land.

Land Development

The development or redevelopment of land includes a number of legal issues, including the potential need for platting, easements, use restrictions, and zoning or land use approvals. Reed Mawhinney & Link can evaluate your land development needs and take the necessary steps to make your land development project as smooth as possible.

Title Insurance

Title insurance is a form of indemnity insurance insuring against financial loss from defects in title to real property and from the invalidity or unenforceability of mortgage loans. It is meant to protect an owner’s or a lender’s financial interest in real property against loss due to title defects, liens or other matters. Confusing? Yes. Important? Absolutely. Whether Reed Mawhinney & Link acts as your title agent or reviews a title insurance product prepared by another office, allow us to ensure your title insurance provides you the best coverage.

Land Trusts

Land trusts provide property owners privacy and asset protection, but can be an intimidating document to draft and understand. Allow Reed Mawhinney & Link to make the process easy by drafting your land trust and explaining it to you in easy to understand terms.

Zoning and Land Use

Zoning and land use involves the regulation of the use and development of real estate.  The most common form of land-use regulation is zoning.  Zoning regulations and restrictions are used by municipalities to control and direct the development of property within their jurisdiction. It is important to know and understand the zoning regulations encumbering your property before you begin the process of developing it.
