Commercial Property Leases

In today’s world, buying a commercial property is harder than ever with pricing and extremely competitive bids. With such in mind, leasing your commercial space may seem the more feasible and attainable way to go. Or, on the flip side, let’s assume you are the property owner looking to lease the space. In either position, having a lawyer to help you draft and review the lease agreement will prove in your best interest.

From drafting and reviewing to negotiating and handling revisions, a commercial lease contains much more in-depth contingencies and information than a residential property lease would.


Zoning Laws

Did you know that zoning laws restrict how a piece of property can be used? It’s true! And, if you fall into the majority, you probably have no idea about these laws. Good thing you have your trusted attorney on speed dial! When it concerns zoning laws, your commercial real estate lawyer will investigate and work on your behalf. Below is a brief look at a few of the items better left to the experts:

  • Rezoning
  • Administrative Hearings
  • Injunctive Relief
  • Appeals

Land Use Laws

Similar to zoning laws, property and land use laws prohibit certain actions from occurring on the land in question. These limitations may coincide with zoning laws, protected lands, and so on. Without full disclosure and knowledge of your land use laws, you could find yourself involved in a costly (and sticky) lawsuit. Who wants that?


Development Laws

Beyond understanding zoning and land laws, development is another area that your commercial real estate attorney will assist. Here, your trusted attorney can assist with the development process – start to finish. Financing, permits, zoning, leases, and so on are just a few of the covered areas that fall under this category.
