Division Of Vacation Properties

Division of Vacation Properties in Tampa

Even in the best of circumstances, dividing real estate during a divorce isn’t easy. Real estate is a complex asset that can take a long time to assess, value, and divide. So, if you have a vacation property that you need to divide in a divorce, having knowledgeable legal counsel on your side to walk you through the process can help ensure your financial health and peace of mind are protected.

Our team at Harris, Hunt & Derr, P.A. has helped clients throughout Florida reach the outcomes they desire in their property division arrangements. We understand the many steps involved in the equitable distribution of marital property, and our attorneys work tirelessly to help you achieve the desired results.

Dividing Assets in Florida: What to Know

With Florida being an equitable distribution state, all marital assets, including vacation homes, are subject to division in a fair and equal manner. If you and your spouse purchased the property after the marriage, then it counts as marital property. However, in some rare cases, real estate purchased by one spouse before the marriage might also become shared property if the other spouse invested their own money and effort into it. Our attorneys and staff will help you determine marital property and also advise you on other issues associated with high asset divorce.
