Commercial real estate transactions are often more complex than residential real estate transactions. As a result, it is important to hire a trusted commercial real estate lawyer to protect your rights and business interests. For over 40 years, our attorneys have represented major companies and local businesses in commercial real estate transactions. From multimillion-dollar property purchases to leases, we have successfully managed countless commercial real estate transactions.
In Virginia, real estate laws were recently changed to allow settlement companies to manage commercial closings. Although our law firm operates a separate company that handles residential real estate transactions, our attorneys handle commercial real estate transactions in our firm. By allowing our law firm to manage commercial transactions, our attorneys can protect the legal rights of buyers and sellers.
How Our Firm Can Assist You
In any commercial transaction, experienced legal representation is a good defense against a bad deal. Since there is no such thing as a standard contract in a commercial real estate transaction, you need a trusted commercial real estate attorney to conduct due diligence on your transaction. Here is a partial list of things our attorneys can review for you:
- Zoning issues
- Environmental issues
- Review legal documents
If you are purchasing commercial real estate, it is a good idea to purchase the property through a business entity such as a limited liability company (LLC) or a corporation. Benefits of forming a business entity include the limited liability protection and preferred tax treatment. Our law firm can complete the documents to form a business entity that fits your situation.
