Our skilled attorneys possess a thorough understanding of the Florida Homestead Exemption and regularly assist clients with the application process.
The Florida Homestead Exemption is a strong asset protection tool unique to Florida residents, prohibiting creditors from obtaining your primary residence by way of a judgement or lien on your property.
Leech Tishman’s attorneys consult with clients to determine if their property meets exemption status, and then assist clients in obtaining this exemption, if applicable. There are exceptions, but in general, qualification is met if the Florida residence you are applying under meets the definition of a primary residence. This particular exemption applies to individuals only, and is not applicable to corporations, trusts, or partnerships that own property in Florida.
