Commercial Real Estate Matters
We can help you address a wide variety of legal issues related to commercial real estate, including:
- Buying, selling, or leasing commercial property – We will provide you with representation when completing commercial real estate transactions, including preparing the necessary documentation and identifying any legal or financial concerns that may affect you as a buyer or seller. If you are a commercial landlord or tenant, we can help you draft and negotiate a commercial lease agreement that will protect your rights and meet your needs throughout the term of the lease. We can arrange for you to use a Section 1031 exchange transaction, so you can defer the gain assuming that you will be purchasing a “replacement property.”
- Zoning and land use – If you are planning a real estate development project, you will need to be sure you are in compliance with local zoning laws and determine how these and other regulations may play a role in your development plans. We will help you identify any issues that you will need to address during a development project, including obtaining construction permits or determining whether you will need to follow any environmental regulations. We can request variances or exceptions to local laws when necessary, and we will provide you with legal representation before local boards or city councils.
- Eminent domain – In some cases, the government may take ownership of private property that is needed for public use. We can provide representation in cases involving condemnation, including determining whether you can challenge the government’s right to take your property or ensuring that you are properly compensated for land that is taken. We will fight to protect your financial interests in eminent domain cases, and we can help you take steps to make sure you receive the just compensation you deserve for your property’s fair market value, the damages to any remaining property, and the related expenses and legal fees.
