Escrow Services for a Large Transaction

Making a large purchase or sale that includes shipping can be a scary thing. What if the seller doesn’t provide the item? What if the buyer doesn’t pay for the item? Who should go first?

The answer is: NEITHER. The smartest way to make a large transaction that involves shipping, online or otherwise, is to use an escrow agent.

Escrow Services for a Large PurchaseWhen an escrow agent is used, both the buyer and seller agree to terms. These terms should include a description of what is being purchased, the purchase price, and the estimated time of delivery.

After the terms have been agreed to, the buyer will deposit the money into the escrow account. Once it is confirmed the money is in the account, the seller will be notified to ship the item. Once the buyer accepts the item, the seller will receive the money that is in the escrow account.

If anything goes wrong along the way, the third-party escrow agent will be able to mediate the situation before it blows up into a civil litigation matter that could cost both parties thousands of dollars.

If you are interested in using or learning more about our escrow services, Boyer Law Firm, PL, can help. For example, we recently helped a client purchase a collectible car through the escrow process. We escrowed the funds in addition to sending a mechanic to physically inspect the car before our client purchased it.

Our escrow services can help you with purchases of:

–          Used cars
–          New cars
–          Used Machinery
–          Commodities
–          Marble
–          Used road equipment
–          Spare parts
–          And much more…

Don’t make a large purchase without considering an escrow agent first. We have seen too many people fall victim to fraud, scams, and receiving no or undesirable merchandise.

Boyer Law obtains a 3 year E-2 Visa for French clients

We are pleased to announce that we have been able to obtain an E-2 visa out of the U.S. Consulate in Paris, France for our clients. They decided that they would like to purchase a restaurant business and live in Florida. We requested our clients to submit a list of documents and negotiated the purchase agreement of the business as well as compiling their investor visa’s petition.

When dealing with such a project, you need to keep in mind that there are two important aspects:
i) The first phase is the businesses deal with financial and legal requirements such as purchase price, licensure, zoning, etc., and
ii) The second phase is the immigration side of the deal, such as ownership, investment in kind and money, conditional sale, etc.

An E-2 visa, is otherwise known as an investor visa and entitles a foreigner to reside and work in the United States. This case was a bit particular in the sense that we helped our client negotiate and purchase a location for his business. We also were able to trademark our client’s business name. We moved ahead and were able to secure the visas for them under these time constraints.

Client was able to endeavor purchase of brand new quality car.

We have successfully represented Mr. F. in in securing his large deposit he made in order to purchase a new car. No proof had been illustrated by the seller to show our client that the car he was purchasing had in fact been ordered by the seller. We wrote a letter of demand to the seller requesting that the seller either provide the proof that the car had been ordered, deliver the car, or return Mr. F.’s $70,000.00 deposit. Our demand letter was sufficient to compel the seller to move forward with the sale of the car. With our help, Mr. F. was able to move forward in his endeavor to purchase a new car.

Clients almost lose their home until Boyer Law successfully closes on the short sale

A local Jacksonville realtor came to us for our help with Client G who was about to lose their home if they did not close as soon as possible on short sale. As the closing agent and attorney for seller we were able to negotiate with the Bank to extend the closing date and drafted all necessary documents including the HUD for the bank to approve. Once the bank approved the short sale closing, we were ready to close.

We closed on the property and the buyer and sellers including the bank were completely satisfied. It is so important to hire a Florida real estate attorney that knows specific laws and regulations in your area, such as Miami, Orlando or Jacksonville. Some of the main advantage points of hiring a real estate attorney is: Ensuring that you receive clear title to your new property; Drafting and explaining to you the appropriate documents; Finalize closing and register the deed in your name.

Boyer law successfully obtains Client’s dream yacht

At Boyer Law Firm, we have recently assisted a foreign client in their venture to purchase a large yacht. Client was concerned about the terms of the contract, how the process would develop and how he could be sure of the physical condition of the yacht. We helped to monitor and review the purchase contract. In doing so, we scheduled independent vessel inspections by marine surveyors to help ensure the seaworthiness, condition and fitness of the vessel our client was purchasing. Not only were we successful in helping our client to complete the purchase of his yacht, but we were also able to guarantee his peace of mind. His peace of mind was obtained by doing everything within our power to make sure that there were no problems with the vessel, the contract, or the actual purchase of the yacht.

Neglected tenant receives the award she deserved!

We would like to announce the successful representation of a recent client, Tenant. Tenant was renting a home in which a pipe burst. Upon notifying the Landlord that a pipe had burst, Landlord instructed Tenant to have a company come and fix the pipe in order to mitigate the damage to the home. In most instances, when a renter needs something repaired, it is normally paid for by the Landlord or rental company. However, in this case when the company sent the bill it was sent to Tenant. In representing Tenant, we conducted an investigation of the facts surrounding the circumstances, had witnesses sign affidavits which stated facts they knew to be true, and attended a court hearing. After the court hearing, the demand against our client, Tenant, to pay for the repairs was dismissed. After using our services to protect her interests, Tenant paid nothing for the repair of the pipe in her rental home.

Boyer Law Successfully obtains Trademark (more specifically a service mark) for Client

We are pleased to announce that Boyer Law successfully obtained a U.S. and FL Trademark approval for our Client. Client T wanted to set up a personalized attraction tour and then wanted to trademark the attraction tour logo rapidly. Since the client’s service mark was specific in nature we had to make sure that we carefully tailored the package for the trademark for its approval.

A service mark is a trademark used to identify a service rather than a product. They can be very beneficial because one’s own unique design of a service or logo cannot be replicated without permission once it is service marked.

We first set up Clients Corporation and then Client began his service tour. Since the trademark process is very rule specific we collected and drafted all materials necessary to file a U.S. Trademark and FL Trademark as quickly as possible. We were successful by getting Clients logo trademarked both under the U.S and FL Trademark division.

Shall you need help with a trademark, copyright, service mark issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Boyer Law obtains E-2 Visa with only $12,000 invested!

We are pleased to announce that we have been able to obtain an E-2 visa out of Italy for our clients, Mr. and Mrs. D. They had decided to live in Florida and submitted a list of documents we requested to compile their investor visa’s petition.

An E-2 visa, is otherwise known as an investor visa and entitles a foreigner to reside and work in the United States. Usually, we do not take cases with such a low investment. This case was a bit particular in the sense that the client had a list of signed contracts, and intellectual property. However, the contracts have not been fulfilled as their own clients did not pay on time. This delayed the submission of the petition.

Nevertheless, we moved ahead and were able to secure the visas for them.

Shall you need help, contact a Florida business immigration lawyer, at Boyer Law Firm handling E-2 investment petitions.

Boyer Law Wins $4.8 M Judgment Reversal on Appeal

In a case with international “flavor”, I argued that a $4.8 million dollars judgment entered against my clients was improper. My clients were living in France and were at that stage not defending the lawsuit.

My clients were notified by regular mail of the final hearing to introduce evidence to determine the amount of damages that they would have to pay. However, the plaintiff mailed the notice only 10 days ahead of the hearing. Obviously, my clients did not receive the notice by mail until after the judgment was entered after the hearing.

The mail between the U.S. and Europe is still unreliable. It still gets lost. At any rate, when and if it arrives, it takes between 3 to 6 weeks.

I was hired to conduct the Appeal. I am glad that the three judges on the Court of Appeals all agreed on my theory of the case.

If you need any help on a similar matter, please contact a Florida attorney at Boyer Law Firm. You only have 30 days to file for a Notice of Appeal.
