Real estate is one of the biggest investments your business will make. Unfortunately, Connecticut real estate law can be incredibly complicated, and making the wrong decision can have a profoundly negative impact on your future operations. In all matters of real estate — including both purchasing and leasing — it is usually a good idea to consult with an attorney who has experience on the matter.
Businesses have highly specialized real estate needs, so there is usually not a one-size-fits-all approach to these types of transactions. What works for one business in its acquisition of a new office space will not work for another’s residential purchase. Common transactions businesses might be familiar with include:
- Leasing of retail or office space
- Commercial property sales or purchases
- Raw land sales or purchases
Transactions are just one small part of real estate. There are also lease agreements, community documents, condominium unit owners’ association documents and so much more. Your business could be working toward achieving a land use appeal or searching for an end to a landlord-tenant dispute.
Most people in Connecticut think of real estate law in terms of simply buying and selling property, but it is so much richer and complex than that. However, that also means that it can be quite complicated. When your business’ continued operations are on the line, do not leave big real estate decisions up to chance. Be sure to consult with a knowledgeable attorney who can make sure that the best interests of your business are the focal point of all real estate matters.
