Real Property Litigation

Often, disputes regarding landlords and tenants, leases, and titles can occur, and your real estate attorney needs to be capable of representing you in these matters. Our attorneys have over 35 years of experience helping clients navigate a wide range of real estate disputes, including:

We thoroughly examine all evidence in your case, including maps, deeds, surveys, zoning regulations, contracts, and more, to reach a negotiation. We do our best to keep the matter out of court through mediation or arbitration, but if needed we will aggressively defend you in a jury or non-jury court.

Our attorneys are trained to ensure all steps are completed and all details are addressed, from offer negotiations to contracts to title transference. Purchasing commercial real estate is a significant investment – let our experienced attorneys represent your interests and guide you toward the best possible outcome.

Risk vs Benefits

By thoroughly analyzing the risks of your commercial real estate sale, we can help mitigate potential problems and encourage a successful outcome. Our experienced attorneys can help eliminate or reduce risks while potentially increasing benefits.

Leasing

Many business owners choose to lease rather than purchase commercial property. However, there are several factors a business owner should keep in mind before signing a commercial lease.

A Commercial Lease is Not the Same As a Residential Lease

Unlike residential leases, commercial leases aren’t covered by consumer protection laws – the law provides less protection from corrupt landlords and other issues. In addition, commercial leases are more varied than residential leases. Terms and conditions may vary widely depending on the business. In addition, while there may be more room to negotiate in a commercial lease, the lease is typically in effect for a longer period of time (often several years as compared to one year for most residential leases). Therefore, they require a more significant commitment and are harder to break.

Ensure These Details Are Covered in Your Commercial Lease

  • Rent amount and increases
  • Security deposit
  • Length of the lease
  • Description of the property
  • Potential improvements to be made
  • Subletting options

There are many other factors to consider, including whether the lease prohibits advertising signs, the exclusivity clause and use clause, and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Our attorneys can help guide you if you are considering leasing commercial property. We help draft lease contracts that protect all parties and their interests.
