Estate & Trust Administration
Settling an estate or trust can be a difficult and time consuming process.

Estate litigation occurs after the passing of an individual and involves the will left behind and other legal matters that arise in relation to their assets. The settling of an estate dispute may also involve trusts, and the distribution and administration of them. Sometimes conflicts can arise and litigation is necessary to ensure fairness and accountability between the heirs and beneficiaries of the estate and/or trust. At Schatt Hesser Mcgraw, our litigation attorney will aid you in pursuing or defending your interests.
Real Estate Property Tax Appeal/Certiorari
Property tax assessment, or real estate tax certiorari, is the area of law that deals with protesting real estate tax assessments. Sometimes, upon review of your tax assessment you may find that an unfairly high taxable value has been placed on your property. Through an appraisal, a property owner can dispute the real estate tax assessment of their property by challenging it and possibly reducing the property’s assessment and taxes. At Schatt Hesser Mcgraw, our goal is to provide tax relief if you are experiencing high real property tax costs by finding evidence of incorrect information that led to the high tax value on your property and ensure that your real estate taxes reflect your property’s appropriate market value.
Landlord & Tenant Litigation
Disputes between landlords and tenants can often arise and in many forms. They can stem from simple issues such as maintenance and stretch all the way to possible eviction. If a conflict has grown past a point where it can be reasonably settled without the intervention of a court, it is important to contact a real estate law firm for counsel and representation. Property leases can often be complex and it is important to be aware of your rights, as a tenant or landlord, to avoid financial loss. Our Ocala attorneys will ensure that the opposing party maintains their side of the agreement to protect your interests to the full extent of the law.
Residential Landlord Rights
At Schatt Hesser Mcgraw we can protect your rights as a landlord by either helping you file or defend against a legal claim. If your tenant has violated his/her lease and agreements through actions such as failing to pay rent, destruction of property, illegally subletting of their apartment, or any other tenant crimes, you have the right to bring a legal claim against him/her. If your tenant has filed a claim against you, we can represent you to avoid financial loss, protect your reputation and quickly resolve the dispute to avoid disruption of your business.
Real Estate Broker Commissions
A real estate broker’s responsibility is to procure the sale of real estate property. Often times, a broker is employed to procure the property for the parties involved and meet acceptable terms. After finding a prospect, introducing the parties and beginning negotiation, the parties involved will close the deal with the exclusion of the broker. In scenarios like this, it is common for the parties to want to deny the broker of commissions by claiming minimal involvement from the broker. Unless there is a written agreement, disputes can arise over the amount of commissions owed to the broker and legal representation will be necessary to settle the dispute. At Schatt Hesser Mcgraw, our real estate attorneys in Ocala, FL, can protect your rights as a broker and fight for your entitlement to a commission.
