What is Title Insurance?
There are two types of title insurance, an owner's policy and a lenders policy. The owner's policy is an insurance policy that protects the buyer/owner from any claims of ownership or interest in the property that were undiscovered in the title search. The owner is covered for litigation expenses necessary to cure any claim(s) up to the amount of the policy. A lender's policy serves the same purpose as the owner's policy except it protects the interest of the lender up to the amount of the lender's policy.
Disputes between the landlord and tenants occur frequently.

Dealing with a foreclosure can prove to be one of the most stressful situations a person can endure. With all of the other financial stress and burdens you are going through the added stress of losing your home or business can be taxing.
At Jimenez Law Firm, P.A. we help relieve your stress by providing aggressive and competent legal solutions to obtain the best possible result given your situation.
There are numerous techniques and defenses that we can invoke on your behalf to obtain dismissal of the foreclosure, reduction of your payment and or principal, negotiate a short sale, or provide you with the temporary relief you need to make alternate living arrangements.
A 1031 tax deferred like-kind exchange is the disposition of the property in return for similar property. When a like-kind exchange qualifies under Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code, the owner (taxpayer) of the property does not report the gain or loss of the disposition on his or her tax return for the year of the disposition.
Tax deferred exchanges can only be used if the transaction meets very strict requirements. At Jimenez Law Firm, P.A. we can evaluate, advise, and structure transactions to ensure that our clients qualify and receive the benefit of 1031 status.
Property Insurance Claims
A hazard insurance claim begins when sudden and accidental damage occurs. Some examples are hurricane; fire; flood; water damage due to pipe bursts or air conditioning back-up; and sinkhole.
Many times, insurance companies make the claims process difficult, make “low ball” offers, or simply deny legitimate claims.
At Jimenez Law Firm, P.A. we are committed to ensuring our clients receive compensation to restore your property to its pre-loss condition.
When handling property insurance claims there is no up front cost. We only receive compensation when we recover money for our clients. In many cases the insurance company pays our fees.
