Negotiations and unique issues
One of the biggest benefits of a commercial real estate attorney is utilizing their strategic negotiation skills. They know the ins and outs of the law and, coupled with their fiduciary duty, they will ensure that you get the best resolution to benefit you or your company. In addition, commercial property transactions are riddled with potential pitfalls. There are problems like corporate ownership, environmental issues, zoning, eminent domain, lease disputes and more that will most likely come up in the process. Each one of these issues requires a complex legal solution before the deal can go through.
Contracts, documents and all forms filed correctly
The paperwork involved with commercial real estate deals is significant. Attorneys can help you understand the complex legalese and look over the contracts and documents with a magnifying glass to ensure that there are no red flags. In addition, there are multifaceted zoning issues, purchase and sales agreements, lease agreements, new construction agreements, title issues and title insurance and dozens of other documents that will need to be examined by a professional.
With more on the line in a commercial deal, the risk goes up significantly. There are more details to sort through, more research to do, more potential snares. An experienced real estate lawyer knows what to look for in the contracts and in the property. They have the eye for all the potential red flags and will do everything in their power to maneuver around potential issues to ensure that your investment is safe.
With so much on the line, it would be unwise not to protect yourself and your investment. We are here for all of your real estate needs and we promise to save you time, money and keep you worry free throughout the entire process.
