Property Insurance Claims

Was your property insurance claim denied? Delayed? Underpaid?

An insurance policy is a contract. As a policyholder, you paid a premium. In exchange for that payment, your insurance company made some promises to you. If you feel your insurance company isn’t holding up their end of the bargain, please contact us for a free consultation.

GMS Law proudly represents policyholders in disputes with their property insurance companies. We assist home and business owners when their claims have been delayed, denied or underpaid. We can handle a claim from inception up and through litigation and trial.

Type of claims we handle:

• Water
• Fire
• Mold
• Hurricane
• Windstorms
• Lightning
• Theft/Burglary/Vandalism
• Flood
• Boiler and Machinery

Real Estate Closings

Buying? Selling? We can help. The purchase or sale of real estate can be an exciting time. It’s important that you partner with the right attorney to help get your transaction across the finish line. We strive to create an efficient closing process that ensures the transaction closes.

Property owners hire contractors, roofers and plumbers with the expectation that they will provide labor, services and materials in a workmanlike manner. Unfortunately, they can fall short of expectations and their carelessness results in damage.

GMS Law provides a variety of real estate services:

• Real Estate Closings
• Title Searches
• Title Insurance
• Preparation of conveyance documents
• Preparation of Seller’s documents
• Review of contracts
• Review of Condo and Homeowner’s Association Documents
• Preparation of Contracts
• Escrow Services

Condo & HOA Damage Claims

Condominium and homeowners’ associations have a legal obligation to maintain, repair and replace common elements. This obligation is set forth under Florida law and in the documents establishing/controlling an association’s responsibilities. However, associations often fail to keep common elements in good repair. This can result in damage to your home and even render the property unfit for living. For example, if the association is responsible for maintaining your roof or plumbing systems, but they fail to do so and your property suffers damage, the association may be liable for the costs of repairs and the loss of use of the property. This may include lost rents if the property is tenant-occupied.

GMS Law has experience representing homeowners against their associations for failing to properly repair and maintain roofs, exterior walls, plumbing and risers. If you believe your property has been damaged because of your association’s failure to maintain, repair or replace common elements (e.g., roofing, walls, plumbing, etc.), please contact us for a free consultation.
