Cumming Real Estate Attorneys Advise Development Companies

Helping Georgia businesses with sales, acquisitions, loans and other transactions

Businesses in the Cumming area are frequently involved in real estate transactions and disputes. Commercial real estate transactions often involve a large number of contracts with tenants, banks and other organizations. At Lipscomb, Johnson, Sleister, Dailey & Smith, LLP, a significant portion of our business law practice is related to real estate development. Because real estate and business law are so closely linked, our attorneys' in-depth knowledge and experience in both areas directly benefits our clients. Businesses trust us to handle their leasing and construction issues. From listing to closing, we provide guidance on legal issues and draft documents to help your transactions go smoothly. When it comes to financing, our attorneys help business owners secure the loans and mortgages they need to develop property and grow their company. Whether your business is acquiring its first location or your company performs real estate transactions regularly, our team has the experience to help make your transactions smoother.

Providing companies with guidance in lease transactions

Leases are essential to Georgia businesses. Whether you are leasing office space for your company or you are developing a shopping center and leasing commercial units to tenants, our attorneys are equipped to assist you with even the most complicated lease transaction. Some types of leases we regularly handle include:

  • Credit lease. In a credit tenant lease, the developer borrows money to build by using rent from tenants as security. This type of deal can be hard to negotiate without an experienced attorney.
  • Ground lease. These complicated transactions give a tenant control over a property for decades at a time, but limit possible uses of the land and do not transfer ownership. Many of these leases cover a period of 50-99 years. At the end of the lease, all buildings and improvements are transferred to the owner. In a ground lease, the tenant will typically be able to develop the property without having the initial costs of purchasing the property.
  • Equipment leases. Most businesses lease some of their equipment, machinery or vehicles as a method of avoiding large outright investments.
  • Retail leases and other net leases. Many retail leases involve payment of monthly rent, as well as the assumption of property insurance, property taxes and building maintenance. Our attorneys help developers and landlords decide on the right type of lease to offer tenants.

Our real estate lawyers assist both tenants and landlords in creating lease documents that protect your business and help it grow.
