James W. Martin is a Florida Bar Board Certified Real Estate Lawyer and Adjunct Professor of Law at Stetson University College of Law who, for over forty years, has practiced Florida real estate, probate, and business law.
This book assists lawyers in drafting contracts for sale of Florida real estate by the use of example forms, including checklists, listing agreements, contracts for sale of real estate, addendum forms, clauses for real estate contracts, amendment forms, assignment forms, and termination of contract forms.
This is a legal forms book and is not a treatise on substantive real estate law. The lawyer should consult Florida Statutes and case law in every case before using any form. No form should be used and no procedure should be followed unless the lawyer understands it and decides that it applies to his or her law practice and to the facts in the particular case. Each lawyer's practice differs in some respects, and all transactions differ, so the lawyer should plan to make changes to these forms accordingly.
