Handling The Florida Homestead Exemption

Our office can also field any questions you have about Florida's complex homestead exemption. This exemption allows Florida residents to protect their property from creditors, ensuring that you can keep your home even through difficult financial times. The homestead exemption also keeps your property taxes down by limiting the taxable value of your home.

The exemption is a valuable resource for many homeowners, but it comes with a number of potential pitfalls for those engaged in real estate transaction. When you schedule a consultation with our office, our experienced staff will closely examine your legal situation and explain how the homestead exemption could affect you. Then, we will guide you through the rest of the process, providing experienced advice at every step of the way.
