Commercial Real Estate Services for Businesses and Individuals

The attorneys at Price, Meese, Shulman & D’Arminio, PC, assist businesses as well as individuals in the buying, selling, transferring, developing, or redeveloping, as well as refinancing of commercial real property. . These services include assistance in the development of commercial, office, warehouse, shopping center and multifamily residential properties; the purchase, sale and refinancing of such properties; and the associated leasing transactions. Our attorneys assist clients through all aspects of the transaction, from the initial review and negotiation of the contract of purchase and sale, remediation of environmental contamination, confirming the accuracy of property surveys, reviewing and, when necessary, clearing title, reviewing and negotiating lending documents, and, ultimately, attending the closing. Our attorneys are experienced in assisting with transactions involving joint ventures and other multiparty ownership, 1031 like-kind property exchanges and both bankruptcy and consensual workouts involving real estate. We handle matters such matters within New Jersey and New York (including New York City) and, on occasion, in other jurisdictions with the assistance of local counsel.

Related Legal Issues in Commercial and Residential Real Estate

Our experienced real estate practice works closely with our environmental law practice, land use and zoning, litigation, leasing, and telecommunications groups. Thus, when issues arise the strength of our combined knowledge and experience results in our clients expectations being not only met, but exceeded. Very often our attorneys are referred to new clients by past clients based upon our concise and relatively inexpensive solutions to legal issues. Our real estate attorneys help clients navigate these ancillary issues affecting their properties and business operations, and when necessary, bring in our other practices to offer additional insight to ensure common goals are achieved.

However, not all transactions proceed flawlessly to closing. Sometimes our clients find it necessary to enforce the provisions of the contract in order to ensure that the terms are followed by the other parties. Again, our commercial transaction and litigation attorneys are often called upon to assist and sometimes intervene to protect our clients’ interests.

We also have many years of experience in assisting individual clients in their purchase or sale of residential real estate, including condominium, cooperative and town house properties, as well as with respect to the refinancing of such properties. We also represent lending institutions in connection with the financing of such properties, including real estate owned (REO) properties, as well as with third-party financing. Price Meese attorneys understand the significance of these transactions in their clients’ lives, and we strive to make the process as transparent and straightforward as possible.
