Commercial Real Estate Transactions

Businesses involved in commercial real estate transactions have a special need for lawyers who can draft purchase contracts, leases, and other agreements, and prepare documents required for regulatory compliance. Typical commercial real estate transactions include:

Purchase and Sale Agreements: Businesses and individual investors require specific and comprehensive contracts to protect their interests in commercial real estate transactions, so the sale will be completed quickly and efficiently with no delays or disputes.
Commercial Lease Agreements: Commercial landlords and tenants typically require more robust contracts than the pre-printed contracts available through real estate trade associations. Often the nature of the parties’ businesses necessitate attorney-drafted contracts to address specific issues and problems unique to the parties. These contracts may be for office, retail, and industrial space.
Agricultural Transactions: The purchase and lease of agricultural land requires an attorney with experience and expertise in agricultural transactions, who can craft well and water sharing agreements, easements and licenses, coordinate environmental inspections and disclosures, and handle production financing documentation, amongst others.
Construction and Development Contracts: For builders, developers, contractors, and investors, the contracts for commercial and residential construction projects must meet the scope, timing and expectations of all parties involved, to prevent costly delays and disputes.
Title Review and Title Insurance: One of the more important legal aspects of commercial real estate purchase and sale transactions is the process of clearing title of any liens or outstanding encumbrances prior to transfer of ownership, and obtaining advice regarding insurance title, once marketable.
Financing and Refinancing: Commercial real estate projects and purchases often require bank or private financing, and the structure of loans or investments can affect ownership rights and recourse for creditors.
