Accomplished counselors draft and review sales contracts
There are many things to consider during the purchase or sale of commercial real estate. The sales contract should be carefully drafted or reviewed to ensure it upholds your interests. If you are a buyer, your lawyer should take the necessary steps to ensure the property is suitable for your needs and uses. This includes performing a title search to find out if there are any encumbrances on the property and investigating zoning and land use restrictions that might limit how you can use the property. Our skilled law firm can draft or review your contract, perform complete investigations and guide you through all the steps of your transaction.
Diligent real estate lawyers help smooth the closing process
Having a legal advocate during a commercial real estate closing in California is essential. A knowledgeable real estate lawyer will make sure all the required legal documentation is in order, review closing documents before they are signed, deal with all difficulties that may arise and otherwise champion your interests. Our experienced law firm will be your advocate at closing when you are buying or selling a property.
Experienced legal advisors help clients negotiate commercial leasing contracts
A commercial lease clearly spells out the rights and responsibilities of both the tenant and the landlord and, if prepared correctly, can prevent or resolve potential disputes later on. Commercial lease agreements typically specify basic terms such as:
- Property details
- Length of lease and cancellation terms
- Amount of rent
- What kind of business will be conducted
- Whether utilities are included in the rent
- Who pays for property taxes and insurance
A leasing contract may also contain terms related to construction and build-out provisions. These provisions stipulate how modifications to the building will be paid for and performed to make it suitable for the tenant’s use. We can help you favorably negotiate construction and build-out provisions — as well as other terms — and review your contract to ensure it reflects your interests before you sign it.
