Understanding the complexities of commercial real estate

Purchasing commercial real estate is a huge investment and can ultimately be very profitable. However, there are many factors that must be addressed prior to closing any commercial real estate deal. Some of the areas of commercial real estate transactions can include:

  • Development and Commercial Use. Sometimes, commercial real estate purchases include the purchase of land or dilapidated buildings that require rebuilds. Due to the state and federal regulations of commercial law, one should retain an attorney when going before zoning boards to receive permits or variances.
  • Due Diligence. When a client is purchasing a commercial property, an attorney should perform all the necessary due diligence to investigate the seller or corporation, as well as examine the property title for any liens, easements, or judgments.
  • Environmental Safety. If a client seeks to develop on land, or if they are rebuilding an already existing structure, it is prudent to perform the necessary investigations to make sure that the land or building is environmentally safe. Sometimes, environmental or engineering reports can identify complex environmental issues that must be remedied before any deal can close.
