Commercial Real Estate

In addition to representing buyers and sellers of land and business, he also represents buyers and sellers of automobile dealerships. He has handled 8 of these transactions in the past few years.
Jerry Well’s largest and most recent commercial transaction was the sale of the First Bank of Jacksonville, Florida. He negotiated the price of the sale for the seller and represented the majority stockholder through each phase of the transaction through closing.
Residential Real Estate
Attorney Jerry B. Wells has written over one billion dollars of title insurance through "The Fund."
Most of these residential contracts are on The Florida Bar/Board of Realtors contract form. This form divides up the expenses and duties of a residential closing in a generally fair way between buyers and sellers, allowing the residential buyer the opportunity to examine the house and property in many different ways:
- The buyer can have all appliances and equipment checked to see if they operate correctly. If an appliance does not work, the contract dictates who is responsible for repairing it.
- The buyer can also write in any unusual inspection the buyer wishes to perform.
- The contract provides for most every common inspection a buyer would want to perform. These inspections are performed at the buyer’s expense.
