Real Estate Developers Benefit From Partnering With an Experienced Real Estate Attorney
As a real estate developer, you deal with local, state, and federal laws all of the time. You must comply with all relevant regulations during the purchase, construction, leasing, and sale processes, including local land use ordinances and state environmental regulations – just to name a few. While you may understand a great deal of the law and have experience handling many of these things on your own or with various attorneys, it is hard to argue that you would not benefit from working with an experienced real estate attorney for all of your needs.
How an Attorney Can Help You as a Real Estate Developer
As you get involved in real estate development for the first time or continue building your career, you may not yet have realized how working with one firm alone can be advantageous. Consider all of the steps of the real estate development process that require legal knowledge, or potentially an objective and strong legal response:
- Investigating potential properties for development
- Negotiating financing with one or more investors
- Identifying regulatory hurdles and solutions to a development project
- Structuring the actual purchase of a building or parcel of land
- Perfecting title
- Having environmental studies performed
- Obtaining land use approval and building permits
- Negotiating construction financing
- Managing leasing
- Structuring the sale of the finished development
The Benefits of Working With One Real Estate Firm
As a real estate developer, you need a lawyer who understands the risks and benefits associated with your work. Attorney Larry E. Bray has more than 30 years of experience as a Florida attorney, and has spent much of his practice focusing on residential and commercial real estate matters. He knows the ins and outs of real estate development and can help you at every step of the way.
By partnering with an experienced real estate attorney, you gain someone who will:
- Put your interests first
- Help you mitigate risks
- Help you minimize losses and maximize profit
- Protect your rights
- Handle disputes quickly and efficiently
- Represent you during litigation
Also, by working with one firm for all of your needs instead of various attorneys at different times, you have a legal team that gets to know your business model and principals. You have an attorney who knows your preferences, your short- and long-term goals, and your opinions regarding financial risk. When you work with a variety of attorneys on multiple projects, you do not establish a close relationship with one lawyer who can then truly further your interests and business.
Most importantly, by building an established relationship with one attorney, you have someone ready to confidently respond to any problems or threats of litigation during the development process. This saves you time from having to go find an experienced attorney when an issue rears its head. Your legal team will already be familiar with the project, will likely have anticipated the current issue, and will be ready to respond.
