Peninsula II

There are many new condos that have been built in the City of Aventura. One of the most recent buildings to be occupied in Aventura is Peninsula II. This building is located at 3301 NE 183 Street, right next to Williams Island. The views from these condos are amazing - it overlooks the intracoastal and the ocean.

It's no surprise that the real estate market is changing. In addition to prices dropping, big shot developers are now struggling or looking for outs. Recently the South Florida Business Journal ran an artilce written by Brian Bandell and Oscar Pedro Musibay, titled Boca Developers negotiating with lenders.

Here's an excerpt from that article...READ MORE - BOCA DEVELOPERS

"Boca Developers is negotiating with its lenders to resolve debt issues on several projects that could include Peninsula II in Aventura, according to several sources.

As a result, Deerfield Beach-based Boca Developers may end up relinquishing several projects to the lender, the sources said.

The sales staff at Peninsula II has already been let go, a source said. A call to the number listed for the sales center was answered by a recording."

I will be discussing various areas of law on this blog, see a full list of legal topics at the end of this article. The first area of discussion will be areas of real estate and title law. If you are in search of a local attorney or real estate title company in Aventura, fill out the contact form above. Here’s an overview of an attorney’s role in a real estate closing.


Real estate law encompasses a wide range of areas relating to acquiring, financing, developing, managing, constructing, leasing and selling residential and commercial property. I’ve been asked to provide a brief and general synopsis for some of the roles of a real estate attorney at a closing.

As many homeowners know, during a real estate closing, the buyer and seller are brought together, the significant documents are signed and payment is made. While this may seem like a relatively simple process, conducting a real estate closing is, in fact, a complicated matter. Accordingly, many buyers and sellers often turn to lawyers for assistance in making the closing process as stress free as possible.

The complex phases of a real estate closing include examination of title, completion and explanation of legal documents, and the resolution of possible title difficulties. Real estate closing attorneys conduct the steps by examining title records for prior conveyances, unpaid mortgages, liens, judgments, easements, and other encumbrances or clouds on title. They confirm the seller has the authority to convey good title and that no errors exist in the chain of title. They negotiate with title insurance companies for insurance coverage to insure titles against any adverse claims of ownership, liens, and easements. Next, they combine this information into one set of closing documents which are explained to the buyer and seller in a simple manner so the parties understand the issues involved in the transaction. These issues include the terms of the sales contract, the findings and analysis of the title search, significance of the title search, the quality of title, the extent of risks, the obligation to close or not to close, and the process of closing itself.

Finally, at the end of the closing, the attorneys disburse the funds, record the relevant documents as public records, and prepare title insurance policies for the purchaser and lender. While not all states require an attorney at closings, I have always recommended their use since a qualified real estate attorney can save you from costly mistakes, such errors in documents or figures, which could result in litigation or other expensive legal action in the future.

Pranks in Public Places

There have been several posts on this blog relating New York City and the City of Aventura, Florida. This post highlights a crew in New York that I think would have a great time in Aventura. I recently discovered their entertaining videos on Youtube that take place in New York City. There's a team in NYC that orchestrates masses of people to create harmless pranks in public places. Some even say that these pranks are art. I think it's a great wake up call! Take a look at their site - http://improveverywhere.com/

If you cannot see the videos because you are reading this post in one of our email blasts or feeds, it's worth visiting our site at www.cityofaventurablog.com
