PREMIER LAW FIRM
We mirror our clients’ focus on their business and family by servicing their legal needs in the areas of real estate, land development, transaction and business succession planning.
We communicate with our clients in six different languages, and we understand the needs and challenges as well as the benefits facing foreign individuals who are planning to buy real-estate property in Florida.
Foreign investors who plan to purchase real-estate assets in Florida should read the section “Why attorney Vs Title Company” carefully and with a more critical approach as buying real Estate for Foreign investors is a bit more complex than for ordinary us citizens. Often Foreign buyers use a real-estate agent who may direct them to a title company instead of a lawyer without fully recognizing the legal and tax implications that the Foreign investor will be faced with.
What are the legal issues?
Purchasing a home in Florida does not give you any rights regarding legal status. You’ll have to talk to an immigration attorney if you plan on staying in the U.S. longer than allowed by a tourist or standard Visa.
While you don’t necessarily need to be a citizen or even have a green card to buy a home in the U.S., you will need an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. Find out more information on how to get an ITIN here.
