Commercial Real Estate

Whether buying or leasing, property transactions are one of the most capital intensive expenditures of a business. The goal of this firm is to advise and represent a client through this complex process to ensure that the client gets the most favorable terms and that their interests are protected for the long term.

Title examinations and title searches are much more complex for commercial real estate than for residential real estate. Commercial property is far more likely to have liens, property divisions, and ownership interests that are not recorded on the title. There are numerous issues that need to be negotiated prior to signing of a purchase agreement or a lease:

  • Easements given to cross over or use property
  • Issue related to the existing tenants
  • Hazardous waste and environmental contamination
  • Debt service and lender requirements
  • Mechanic's liens
