Commercial Real Estate

Commercial Real Estate 


Committing to a commercial real estate deal is a weighty decision. They are often complicated, document-intensive matters and involve a significant investment. Unlike residential real estate deals, parties to a commercial transaction are deemed to be more sophisticated under the law and therefore are afforded less protection. Many of the federal disclosure laws protecting residential purchasers do not apply to a commercial purchase. While this creates flexibility in structuring commercial property deals, it also makes it easy for an unexperienced party to be taken advantage of. 

Poorly drafted purchase and sale contracts can lead to arguments among the parties, unnecessary expenses and potentially costly litigation. Similarly, failure to identify title issues or properly assess land use risks can turn a good real estate deal bad.
