Commercial Real Estate Attorneys – Buying, Selling and Leasing Chicagoland Commercial Real Estate
If you are buying, selling or leasing a commercial property in Chicagoland, the representation of a real estate attorney is essential. Property zoning, building codes, title defects, use permits, hazardous material removal, disclosure and liability are just a few of the concerns involved.
For example, a property that is zoned for a specific commercial use, such as industrial, can be adversely impacted by local ordinances that effectively mitigate its value. Also, nearby properties with conflicting zoning can create contentious situations, even when your intended business use is within the boundaries of law.
In other cases, a zoning change may be desired by the purchaser to facilitate new development, or convert a warehouse building into residential units. Repurposing commercial property can be lucrative, but it requires sophisticated planning and the guidance of an experienced real estate attorney.
Landlords and property owners need legal guidance to comply with Fair Housing Laws, as well as occupancy permits, building inspections and eviction processes. Housing law and municipal statutes tend to be “tenant-friendly,” which requires extra diligence on the part of property owners and building management.
