“Anything worth doing, is worth doing right.” TM

Dedication, Knowledge, Experience, and Results

Desperate times call for creative measures, and one possible solution for lenders caught up in heavy real estate lending that is deeply rooted in Florida law is: a court-appointed receiver. Using a receiver helps maximize the value of distressed assets. I serve as a Receiver in state and federal courts in Broward County, Miami-Dade County, and Palm Beach County, Florida.

Undefeated Receivership Services in Florida

Receiverships of income-producing properties continue to be used, often at the request of a foreclosing mortgagee. Mortgagees may be motivated to seek the appointment of a receiver for a variety of reasons. If the property generates rental income, the foreclosing mortgagee may seek a receivership to prevent the rents from being diverted to the owner or other creditors. In addition, a mortgagee that takes control of the collateral is exposed to liability, and the appointment of a receiver protects the mortgagee from that exposure. A mortgagee may wish to avoid taking possession of the property because of the potential liability for environmental contamination on the property. Also, authorizing a receiver to sell the mortgaged property may result in a fair market sale price, as opposed to a distress sale at foreclosure.
