When to Hire a Commercial Real Estate Lawyer?
Commercial real estate transactions can be complex. As a business owner, you may not have the time to understand all of the legal ramifications being an entrepreneur may entail. Commercial real estate lawyers can oversee environmental concerns, zoning issues, liens, easements, structural conditions, and much more.
At Lopez Law Group, our seasoned professionals are experts in the world of commercial real estate. It is our mission to not only represent our clients with vigor but help them make more informed business decisions. Choose a Commercial Real Estate lawyer when:
You just received a lease agreement or there is a dispute.
Your lease is a binding contract that stipulates your rent, renewal requirements, and start date. Attorneys are necessary in these situations to not only draft documents, but act as representation in the case of any disputes. They can also provide counsel on lease violations and evictions.
You need to create a purchase or sales agreement.
Drafting legal documentation is what we do best. Save time and money with a well-written contract that clearly defines a buyer’s and seller’s liabilities, obligations, and rights. There are many times in commercial real estate where a deal seems too good to be true. For example, you might find a great price on an office building, but it is $50,000 in tax debt. That’s why it is incredibly important you have an expert look over the paperwork to protect your best interests.
You’re dealing with an eminent domain issue.
Eminent domain requires just compensation. If you own commercial property that the government wants to confiscate for public use, you may lose ownership. Public use can involve anything defined as a project intended to benefit citizens. To ensure your rights are met, you need professional representation. Let us make sure you are protected according to Florida laws.
You’re going to build your own office.
Developing commercial property is not an easy task. It involves a lot of legal paperwork. Additionally, an attorney can represent you in any construction-related disputes, accidents, property defects, or lien situations. Complex laws govern this sector so it’s good to have an expert guide you.
You need to negotiate your title insurance.
You need title insurance to protect your assets. However, title agents do not have law degrees and cannot provide you with legal advice. That’s why it’s important to have a commercial real estate lawyer to help you negotiate the best deal.
These are just a few of the scenarios in which we can provide invaluable support. If you still have questions on hiring a Commercial Real Estate Lawyer, contact us for a consultation today!
