Buying or selling a commercial building, developing land or acquiring a multi-family rental investment property is likely to be one of the largest financial transactions you will make in your business life. Experienced representation is essential so that you can move ahead with confidence.
Advising Property Owners and Investors
Before you start discussing purchase and sale agreements, commercial lease arrangements and bids for construction contracts, talk to a real estate attorney at Buechner Haffer Meyers & Koenig. Our attorneys have broad experience representing clients in most real estate matters, including:
- Purchase and sales contracts. We work with our clients to prepare, analyze, and negotiate letters of intent and purchase and sales contracts. We guide you through the process of closing on the contract, including advice on title, financing, and environmental matters. Our goal is to maximize your reward and minimize your risk as we guide you through the process.
- Lease agreements. We work with our clients to prepare, analyze, and negotiate lease agreements for commercial, industrial, and residential purposes. It is critical that leases be in writing and signed with the formalities required by law. Since leases can last for decades we work with our clients to evaluate and understand their needs and identify how a well prepared lease will benefit them now and in the years to come.
- Easements and maintenance agreements. Our attorneys are experienced in working with easements and owners who benefit from or are subject to an easement, and can assist with preparing a maintenance agreement for shared easements.
- Ownership. If you own rental or commercial real estate you will want to minimize your risk from premises liability issues. We will advise you on the best form of ownership for you..
Protecting The Rights Of Building And Development Professionals
Mechanic's liens have been used as a method to ensure payment to construction contractors and subcontractors since the early 1800s. They protect contractors, subcontractors, and materialmen from effort to avoid payment for labor and materials. While under a mechanic's lien, a property owner may not sell the property until the lien has been paid or removed by the courts.
Mechanic's liens have very technical requirements which can easily get overlooked and misunderstood. If you are considering developing property or are a contractor seeking to file a mechanic's lien on a property, it is important to make sure you get sound legal counsel to make sure it will be valid in court.
