The best advice when it comes to commercial leases is to have a lawyer check the lease BEFORE you sign any lease, including a triple net lease or a full service gross lease. It is always more cost efficient to avoid a financial catastrophe rather than having expensive litigation costs to alter, or to terminate a real estate lease after it is signed. If you are looking at leasing commercial space, an HS Law lawyer can review, analyze and give you the positives and negatives before you sign the lease.
If you are planning to lease out commercial space, it is prudent to have a lease agreement that reduces your risk, while protecting your interests, including not paying for unforeseen expenses. It is also prudent to do due diligence and check out a potential tenant’s financial background. Commercial BC real estate leases can involve many legal variables that affect different industries, such as environmental issues.
Another major factor in commercial leases is the default clauses. It is essential to set out and define the remedies that cover your position if the lease is broken. Many people have a tendency to enter a commercial lease with an optimistic attitude and neglect to factor in default remedies should the situation sour. It is best to be prepared for a worst case scenario when leasing commercial BC real estate.
Buying and Selling Commercial BC Real Estate
Purchasing and selling commercial BC real estate can be far more complex than conveying residential real estate. The key, whether buying or selling commercial property, is to maximize value and minimize risk for all types of projects and real estate transactions.
There are other structural aspects behind a commercial purchase or sale such as financing, project development, joint ventures and limited partnerships. In some cases a real estate sale is part of a family business succession and estate planning. There may be other business factors that should be considered before buying or selling real estate.
Depending on the industry the property will be used for, environmental issues and regulations, may or may not, be of major concern. Zoning restrictions, licensing and noise bylaws are some other issues that can affect the sale or purchase of commercial property.
