I pledge to be in constant communication with you, keeping you fully informed throughout the entire buying process. It’s a good thing to have an advocate – someone you know, like, and trust - to guide you through the process.
FLORIDA LAW entitles every person who has legal or equitable title to real estate and maintains it as their permanent residence, to apply and receive up to a $50,000 homestead property exemption. A partial exemption may apply if the ownership of the applicant is less than 100%.
You are entitled to a Homestead Exemption if, as of January 1st, you have made the property your permanent home or the permanent home of a person who is legally or naturally dependent on you. By law, January 1 of each year is the date on which permanent residence is determined.
All proof of residency should be dated prior to January 1st.
