Commercial Real Estate Services We Provide

While your deal may be done quickly, the fact is that even a simple lease can cause problems. Don’t worry. At TonaLaw, we can help you with nearly every issue that may come up regarding commercial real estate. A few of the services we provide include:

  • Representing parties in real estate transactions, including buyers, investors, sellers, agents, and brokers
  • Preparations and negotiations regarding the sales and acquisitions of assets, including property
  • Title examinations and insurance policies
  • Preparations of purchase and sales agreements, easements and other documents
  • Issues regarding condemnations
  • Land use and zoning issues
  • Facilitating Small Business Administration loans
  • Resolving lease issues and breaches of contract  
  • Negotiating lease terms either on behalf of the tenant or landlord
  • Construction and development issues
  • And more

In addition, our lawyers are intimately familiar with business litigation in Long Island. While we do our best to handle commercial real estate issues through mediation and arbitration, we understand that litigation may be the only solution. Mediation is the process of both parties working with a neutral third party to find a compromise, while in arbitration, that third party makes the ultimate final decision. Litigation, however, involves the court system. Our attorneys are highly experienced with each of these processes and can give you a better chance of getting the outcome you’re looking for. 

How to Choose a Commercial Real Estate Attorney in Long Island

If you are looking to hire a commercial real estate lawyer, you want to make sure you pick the right one. The good news is, you can easily shop around to find the lawyer that will work best for you. In order to do so, be sure to ask these questions:

1. How often do you handle matters related to my specific area of real estate interest?

Commercial real estate law is as varied as nearly any other type of law. You want to find an attorney who specifically works with matters related to your interest in real estate. For instance, if you’re buying a house, you probably don’t want a commercial real estate lawyer; it’s a completely different field of practice.

Even commercial real estate varies greatly. For example, if you are looking to invest in an apartment complex, you want a lawyer who has experience negotiating such deals. But if you want to work out a more favorable lease in your current building, you will want to work with an attorney who is intimately familiar with that process.

2. Who will be working on my case?

Some law firms have only a small staff that handles every case that comes in. Others have large teams of attorneys, paralegals and other professionals who are staffed for different types of cases. When you are meeting with different law firms, be sure to ask about the staff who will be working on your case.

If there isn’t at least one veteran lawyer who will be handling your case, your best bet is to find a different firm. Of course, young attorneys need to gain experience, but they shouldn’t be handling your case on their own!

3. How much will my case cost?

There are a number of factors that can cause your case’s cost to rise. But your lawyer should be able to give you a pretty accurate estimate for how much your commercial real estate issue will cost to resolve. By getting this number, you can more easily shop around and find a lawyer who fits into your budget.

Some law firms will work on a flat fee basis. But more likely, the firm will work on an hourly basis. How much the case will cost you will depend on how many lawyers, paralegals, and other professionals are working on your case, and how complicated the issue is. 

4. Do you have references you can share?

Fancy words and online reviews are one thing. But being able to contact previous clients is a whole different matter. Don’t be afraid to ask your attorney for references. It can be especially helpful if the references were cases similar to your own matters. 

When you reach out to references, be sure to have a list of questions ready. Some questions you could ask include:

  • Did the law firm help you adequately meet your goals?
  • How well did the firm communicate with you?
  • Did you feel the costs were fair for your case? 
  • Did the firm add on extra costs you weren’t expecting?
