What are the Risks of Not Using an Attorney When Buying or Selling Commercial Real Estate?

In this video, our Chicago commercial real estate attorneys explain why attorneys may be necessary for commercial real estate contracts. Commercial real estate purchases  have many more laws and regulations than buying a home, all of which must be followed in order for the transaction to be valid.  Your attorney will review all the pertinent information and documents and consult with you regarding financing, construction, zoning and environment laws, title insurance, taxes, and any other questions or issues associated with land use and development. While some states do not require you to have an attorney present at closing, or at all throughout the process, it is highly advised that your attorney is at the closing. While the attorney’s primary job for a buyer or seller is to be a guide and expert during the entire transaction process, he or she may have to take on different responsibilities depending on the situation.
