A boutique law firm
Real estate law can be complex as well as state-specific. Thus, proper documentation of all business matters related to real estate is crucial to protect your legal rights. Hiring a qualified and experienced real estate attorney can mitigate the risks of owning or leasing property and help to manage all of the financial and legal aspects of real estate transactions.
Home, commercial buildings, and land purchases or leases can have unforeseen liabilities that are easily circumvented by consulting with a real estate attorney before signing on the dotted line.
Commercial Real Estate Law
Our team is well-versed in commercial real estate leases and purchases. We work one-on-one with clients to review potential lease contracts and handle negotiations to protect from future liabilities.
When a client decides to build rather than purchase or lease an existing real estate building, the risk of construction disputes is much higher. Even when leasing or purchasing an existing building to accommodate the client’s commercial or residential needs, construction disputes can arise—incurring additional costs, delays, and challenges.
Our real estate attorneys are experienced in handling construction disputes. We will work to diffuse the situation swiftly and efficiently, earning back valuable time for our clients.
Landlord and Tenant
Real estate transactions between landlords and tenants are rife with problems, but you can avoid problems by having appropriate legal counsel and covering your bases. The attorneys at Thrift McLemore are experienced in drawing up leases, lease signings, handling eviction processes, addressing hidden and additional costs, subletting, and insurance.
Leasing commercial properties have additional factors to consider, such as zoning laws and property use for businesses. An experienced real estate attorney can ensure that the property and lease terms are suitable to your needs.
Leasing and purchasing property are not the only available options for business owners when it comes to obtaining the use of commercial property. A license may be more beneficial for businesses looking to reduce their possessory interest and use the property for a shorter term. A lease can place higher levels of control on the tenants, including business hours, property use and restrictions on day-to-day operations that may negatively impact the business.
Mortgages are liens placed on a purchased property by a financial institution in exchange for a loan used to make the real estate purchase. There are several different types of mortgages available. Knowing which is the right option for you will reduce the risk of foreclosure and provide optimum mortgage rates that meet your individual needs.
Real Estate Purchases and Sales
An experienced real estate attorney can ensure that property ownership is properly established. The attorneys at Thrift McLemore have extensive experience in purchase agreements, title investigations, deed executions, reviewing financing documents, and developing escrow instructions.
Zoning, Planning, and Land Use
Local laws for zoning, planning, and land use controls how the property is being used. Zoning laws regulate building construction. When violated, zoning laws can lead to expensive payouts and serious consequences.
When looking to build on empty land or purchase or lease a property for commercial use, consulting an experienced real estate law attorney ensures that the commercial or residential buildings and their use align with local laws.
