Have you been served a foreclosure complaint?
If you are dealing with a foreclosure situation, a real estate attorney can evaluate your particular situation and determine the best defense designed for your family’s needs and financial situation. You don’t have to panic. We are happy to consult with you to evaluate the best way to move forward. We aggressively defend foreclosure actions.
Need a loan modification to keep your home?
Unlike many attorneys, we don’t stop at defending foreclosures. We work diligently with loan modifications, too (without charging ridiculous fees). If you have tried unsuccessfully to get one or have felt daunted by the effort, we are here to help. There are several types of loan modifications we can work with, including the HAMP program and what is called “in-house” modification. Contact us for more information.
Are you confused and need help with a property conveyance?
Property conveyances in Florida are typically done through deeds. Essentially, deeds are legal documents that specify the property to be conveyed and are recorded in the official records so that the world is on notice of who owns a particular piece of property in that county. As deeds affect and show ownership of real property, it is very important that the deeds are executed in compliance with the laws of this state. If you are preparing to convey and/or accept a deed, let us help you make sure there are no issues down the line and that the transaction results in a proper conveyance.
Complex Real Estate Litigation
Partition & Quiet Title Actions
Are you and another party in a dispute over who has superior title to a parcel of property? Or is someone suing you alleging that they hold a superior lien to your property?
We can help! Typically, a quiet title action will require the plaintiff to “deraign” the title for a period of 7 years. This essentially means tracing the current title back seven years and identifying how your interest conflicts with the other party. Additionally, partition actions can be brought for real property, personal property, and even mineral rights in real property. Generally, in these types of actions, two title holders to the property are in conflict, and one party is seeking to force a sale; however, a court will typically look to see if the property is “nondivisible” prior to forcing the sale of the property at a public auction.
Have you placed goods, services, and/or labor that led to the improvement of a piece of real estate, only to have the legal owner of the property attempt to become unjustly enriched by the value of your goods, services, and/or labor?
You may need to consider seeking to put an equitable lien on the property. An equitable lien is a creature of equity that the courts will impose to prevent injustice in certain circumstances. If imposed, it will give the plaintiff a lien or “encumbrance” on that property so that the property itself may be proceeded against in court and either sold or sequestrated.
Setting Aside Deeds
Do you have a conflict or problem with a deed?
Sometimes land disputes are created when someone seeks to cloud the title on your property improperly. Or, sometimes, deeds may be conflicting, be the product of fraud, or be lacking insufficient consideration. If there is a deed that is wrongly affecting your legal or equitable interest in a piece of land, please consult with us so we can discuss your options. Our courts have the power to set aside deeds, and we can help you take exercise this legal option if necessary.
Landlord & Tenant Law
Are you in the midst of a landlord/tenant dispute?
Golden Key Law Group PLLC provides you with in-depth assistance with landlord/tenant disputes. We will conduct a full review of your rental agreement in context with any applicable legal statutes, conclude how the property is classified under Florida law, and will also fight for you if the dispute goes to court.

Have you recently gone to a final hearing in a real estate case and obtained a negative outcome?
You may be able to appeal the judgment if you act timely. Appellate work is highly complex and requires a strong understanding of the applicable case law. If you need appellate representation in a real estate matter, we can assist you with drafting your brief and attempt to help you make right what went wrong in the lower court.
