Commercial Real Estate
Commercial real estate law pertains to a wide range of issues, activities, and transactions that involve commercial structures used for business purposes. These structures include office buildings, retail outlets, malls, apartment complexes, hotels, entertainment venues, and all other types of business-related buildings as well as raw land that is scheduled for development. Contracts are an intrinsic part of commercial real estate law; such contracts can be extremely complicated and extensive.
Commercial real estate transactions generally involve large investments, which is why those involved should be represented by an attorney experienced in this area of law. You will want to ensure that you fully understand your legal rights, obligations, and duties. In the matter of contracts, you will want a contract that protects you and that is enforceable. The role of the real estate attorney is even more critical in the field of commercial real estate. Leasing and rental disputes are common occurrences and may require professional mediation to ensure the best possible outcomes for all parties to the dispute. Evictions and tenant complaints can also result in litigation and court appearances.
