What factors should I consider when purchasing commercial real estate?

There are various issues that may arise during the course of any commercial real estate transaction, which is why you need an experienced Pennsylvania real estate attorney at your side who can identify and address those issues immediately. Some of the most common factors you should consider when purchasing commercial real estate are as follows:

  • Due Diligence: It is the job of all experienced attorneys to perform due diligence to ensure that the property buyer knows what he or she is getting into. Our firm can work to ensure the property title does not have any easements, liens, or judgments.
  • Development and Commercial Use: If you are making a commercial real estate purchase, you may have to rebuild the property, especially if you purchase a dilapidated or otherwise run-down property. That being said, when you do, you should hire an attorney who understands the various federal and state regulations pertaining to commercial real estate law before speaking with zoning boards.
  • Environmental Safety: If you are looking to develop land or rebuild an existing structure, our firm can work to ensure that your building is environmentally sound and that it complies with all environmental regulations.
