Residential real estate refers to properties intended for people to reside in, such as houses, apartments, etc. Commercial real estate refers to a building or land intended to generate profit from capital gain or rental income, such as a storefront, apartment complex, office building, mall, etc.
It is important to differentiate between these two types of real estate when hiring a Florida real estate attorney because the process of buying or renting these properties can be very different.
Here at Boyer Law Firm, we concentrate on buying and selling both residential and commercial properties, and we handle commercial rentals and commercial landlord/tenant issues. We do not practice residential landlord tenant issues or assist tenants with residential leases.
If you are interested in purchasing a commercial property, then our commercial real estate attorneys can assist you with determining whether you should buy or rent the property. Commercial real estate transactions can be must more complex then residential real estate transactions, which is why it is important to hire a Florida commercial real estate attorney.
When renting a commercial property, it is important to have a Florida commercial real estate attorney review the lease agreement BEFORE you sign it. Remember, a lease agreement is a contract which can run up to 75 pages long! We have received many calls from people attempting to get out of a bad commercial lease agreement, and their issues could have been solved in a much easier and cost-efficient way if they had hired an attorney to review the lease before they signed it.
Our residential real estate attorneys can assist you in purchasing a Florida residential property in a quick and efficient manner. It is important to hire an experienced residential real estate attorney to assist you with the closing, including making sure the property has a clear title, which is done through a title search. If a proper title search is not performed on the property, then the buyer can potentially be stuck with many detrimental issues, such as these horror stories.
