Relocating a Business? A Real Estate Attorney Can Help!

To the untrained eye, a commercial real estate transaction should seem simple. A business sees an ideal location, finds out how much it would cost to run their operations from the location, negotiates a price with the owner, and the transaction concludes.

While this would be an ideal scenario, it often does not happen that way. Instead, there may be a complicated dance between the property owner and the business owner that may go several rounds before the transaction is complete.

This post will highlight a few of the steps and how a skilled real estate attorney can help when a business decides to relocate.

Getting out of the current lease: Indeed, the grass may be greener on the other side of the fence; but before heading to greener pastures, a business may have to negotiate a proper exit from its current venue. An experienced lawyer can negotiate a buy out of the current lease so that both sides can benefit.

Finding a suitor: Perhaps an exit can be expedited if there is a willing suitor to take over the rent payments at the former location. Here, a real estate attorney may have options to help a business find another entity that may be suitable for the location.

Drafting new lease terms: In many instances, money may be the primary obstacle that prevents a deal from getting done. A real estate attorney can help in negotiating lease terms that satisfy all sides. This type of negotiation is critical when a business owner experiences problems exiting a current lease; either because market rates have plummeted since the lease was first signed, or a potential suitor may not be able to agree to current market terms.
