LEASES & REAL ESTATE
Pennsylvania Real Estate Attorneys
Everyone – no matter if you are an individual, a small company, a school, a nonprofit, or a large company – is affected by real estate in some way. Want a place to live? Rent it or buy it. Running a business? Rent an office, build a factory, buy a building. Working from home or running a “virtual” business? There are lots of regulations out there affecting that use of real estate. A key thing to remember about real estate is that the life of the transaction is usually measured in years – so if mistakes are made, those mistakes can haunt the parties long after a deal is “done.”
We have represented businesses, real estate investors, banks, private lenders, individuals and developers seeking to buy, sell, lease, or otherwise use real estate in any fashion. One thing we have learned over the years is that real estate matters (like all business deals) are SO much better when things are planned appropriately, documented correctly and all parties know what they are getting into – and, just as important, how they might get out, if the need arises.
Real Estate is a complicated subject with lots of potential things that can go wrong – even if you’ve dealt with it many times before. We can help you make sure that everything gets done, and gets done right.
