Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Real Estate Law

What types of property purchase transactions are considered commercial?

Any property transaction that involves buying or selling properties intended for business purposes — such as office buildings, retail spaces, or industrial facilities — is typically considered a commercial real estate transaction.

What do I need to consider when buying commercial property?

When buying a commercial property, it’s important to consider location, market trends, zoning regulations, rental income potential, property condition, and financing options.

Should I set up a separate entity to hold my commercial real estate?

By setting up a separate entity, such as an LLC or corporation, you can strengthen your liability protection and enjoy greater tax advantages; however, these circumstances vary case to case, so it’s important to consult with a knowledgeable real estate attorney to understand your best options.

What are some of the risks of purchasing a commercial property?

Market volatility, economic uncertainty, maintenance costs, tenant turnover, and regulatory changes are all examples of risks associated with purchasing commercial property.

What is a “Section 1031” exchange? Can this benefit me?

Section 1301 exchanges allow for a tax-deferred exchange of like-kind properties, potentially helping you avoid capital gains taxes during a commercial real estate transaction if reinvested into another qualifying property.

Does it matter how I take ownership of commercial property?

The manner in which you take ownership of commercial property can impact your liability, tax obligations, and financing options, so it’s important to consult with a real estate lawyer to determine the best ownership structure for your specific circumstances.

What is a “clear title?” How do I ensure that I get one?

A “clear title” means that the property you purchased doesn’t have any outstanding legal claims or encumbrances. To ensure a clear title, buyers typically conduct a title search and obtain title insurance to protect against unforeseen issues.
