Commercial Real Estate Transactions
The purchase and sale of commercial real estate can be a complex process. Not only is there more money involved than with the typical commercial transaction, but there are also more things to consider if you want your deal to be successful.
Garmo and Garmo, LLP has several attorneys that are also licensed California real estate brokers. Our team has helped clients with transactions for vacant land, industrial parks, shopping centers, office buildings, hotels/motels, and much more.
Residential Real Estate Transactions
Buying or selling a home is a major financial decision for most people, and a simple error or omission during this process can be costly. While a real estate agent is one party that can and should protect your interests, you have other options.
The experienced real estate attorneys at Garmo and Garmo, LLP provide unique representation to clients because our attorneys are also real estate brokers. Whether you also have an agent and want another set of eyes or are doing a For Sale by Owner (FSBO) sale, our legal team can ensure that your deal meets your goals and that your rights and interests are protected.
Lease Review Service
Both residential and commercial leases have become increasingly complex. By signing something you haven’t thoroughly reviewed or understand, you could compromise your rights and financial wellbeing. On the other hand, landlords must also ensure they have their rights protected when leasing a property.
Garmo and Garmo, LLP has successfully reviewed and negotiated thousands of lease agreements between tenants and landlords for both residential and commercial properties. We can help explain the terms of a lease and negotiate certain items that will benefit you such as improvements, extensions, and compete clauses.
Due Diligence Representation
Before completing a real estate purchase, it’s vital that you find out everything there is to know about that property. This is referred to as “due diligence.”
This is a lengthy and arduous process that can make or break a real estate transaction. Once there is a contract in place with an earnest money deposit, buyers have the opportunity to review all aspects of the seller’s financial documents, leases, contracts, relationships, plans, etc.
Garmo and Garmo, LLP represents both buyers and sellers during this process. The goal of due diligence is to prove that the property represented at the sale and in the contract is the one that is being conveyed through the transaction.
San Diego Landlord Tenant Issues
When there are leases for residential or commercial property, there are also likely to be issues and disputes. Landlords need to make sure that tenants are paying on time, respecting the terms of the lease, and otherwise protecting their real estate investments. Tenants have the right to live or work in maintained and safe units.
Garmo and Garmo, LLP is experienced in dealing with landlord-tenant issues and helping our clients achieve their goals. Landlord-Tenant Law can be complex, and the wrong move can have significant repercussions. Whether dealing with evictions, breach of lease agreements, or other related issues, our goal is to resolve these issues in an expeditious manner.
Real Estate Litigation
When it comes to transactions involving buildings and land, the number of things that can lead to legal disputes is virtually endless. Real estate transactions, leases, and development involve a series of agreements and contracts between individuals, businesses, and government bodies. Misunderstandings, misrepresentation, and omissions can lead to significant financial losses.
Garmo and Garmo, LLP, are San Diego real estate attorneys that are willing to do what is legally necessary to protect your rights. Between a mix of settlement negotiations and aggressive courtroom litigation, our goal is to ensure that you achieve the most favorable outcome in your case. Some of the real estate litigation cases we handle include:
