The necessity of a business plan

Entrepreneurs in Florida have to think carefully about the steps they take to create and operate their business. This partly why having a business plan is so important.

Developing a business plan demonstrates how serious individuals are about their enterprise. With a formal business plan in hand, prospective entrepreneurs can show investors, partners and employees that they are dedicated to establishing a successful business.

South Florida sees an increase in real estate transactions

The number of properties sold and the average price of those properties increased in South Florida in 2018. Miami-Dade County alone reported sales of more than 3.5 million square feet of commercial property, which is the first time in history that the county sold that many properties.

Though the number of sales in Palm Beach decreased slightly, most counties in the southern portion of the state saw record increases. Broward County reported more real estate transactions than any other county in the state.

What to do in a property line dispute

It isn't uncommon for Florida homeowners to engage in disputes. In many cases, they can be resolved through effective communication. Objective markers like a fence or a tree could be used as the official boundary between one property and the next. There are times when property disputes arise because a homeowner puts a building or a garden a few inches over his or her property line.

In such a scenario, it may be possible to ask a neighbor for an easement or to be deeded the extra property needed for those items. It may also be possible for an individual to claim adverse possession. This may occur if a person has used land belonging to a neighbor for a long period of time with no complaints.

auction without title transfer - is this allowed?

Q. One of the homes in our community is going to a public auction this weekend, which is strange since the bank never took title to the property and the property is still titled in the owner's name. Of course, the owner abandoned the property 9 months ago and stripped the appliances. How can the property be auctioned off if the bank never finished the foreclosure and never received title from the Clerk? Does the HOA need to have a lien on the home in order to ensure payment of the past due assessments after the auction?
