Aqualea Residences, a Condominium

Aqualea Residences, a Condominium aka Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort, Clearwater, Florida. Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., is accepting cases to represent purchaser clients who have contracted with Crystal Beach Capital, LLC, a Florida limited liability company, to purchase a condominium unit in the Aqualea Residences (a/k/a Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort) development and who have not taken ownership (have not closed on the purchase) of their unit(s). The property consists of 250 condo-hotel suites, which all appear to have been completed after the Purchase Agreement’s estimated completion date.


As evidenced by the Florida state and federal court dockets/public records, Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., is one of the most active law firms in this area of the law. The law firm has settled many cases and has taken many other cases to final judgment, securing final judgments in favor of its client purchasers and against various developers, for the deposits paid plus interest, attorney fees, and costs. To date, Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., has filed over 500 separate lawsuits throughout Central Florida on behalf of preconstruction contract purchaser clients seeking to terminate their contractual obligation to purchase a unit and to recover as much of their deposit money as possible. Most cases are handled on a contingency fee basis.


In a case that received national attention, Harvey v. Lake Buena Vista Resort, L.L.C., 568 F.Supp.2d 1354 (M.D.Fla. 2007) affirmed Harvey v. Lake Buena Vista Resort, L.L.C., 306 Fed. Appx. 471 (11th Cir. 2009 ), Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., represented a husband and wife in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida and through appeal. By way of example only, in that case, this law firm filed a lawsuit on behalf of its purchaser clients in federal court for violations of the Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act, Florida Statutes Chapter 718, Breach of Contract and other causes of action against the defendant developer, Lake Buena Vista Resort, LLC, and was able to secure and recover a six-figure judgment, as it has done for many other preconstruction condominium unit purchasers throughout Central Florida. We encourage all purchasers to interview an attorney that they may be contemplating to retain and to ask that attorney for their experience, record in this area of the law, number of cases taken to final judgment, number of instances affirmed on appeal, number of attorneys in the firm, firm staff, resources, etc.


We sincerely believe that purchasers should not retain an attorney or law firm until they are confident that 1) the law firm has the experience and resources to represent their best interest and 2) they fully understand the law firm’s litigation strategy. The Florida Bar, which regulates all attorneys who are licensed to practice law in the State of Florida, provides strict guidelines which limit our ability to refer to past successes or results obtained for other purchasers in this or other developments. However, we can provide you with this and additional information in response to any inquiry. Accordingly, we encourage you to contact us via the “Contact Us” page, and we will promptly respond with additional information.


Urban Thier & Federer, P.A.’s representation of buyers, includes litigation of cases in state court, federal court and arbitration proceedings. We encourage you to become informed of your rights and options. You should also ensure that any law firm you consult or retain to represent you has the experience, resources, and ability to take your case through trial and appellate courts, if necessary. 

Please note that Urban Thier & Federer, P.A. does not represent you and cannot take any action on your behalf unless and until you enter into a formal written Legal Representation Agreement.
