PRACTICE AREAS

REAL ESTATE

Fantetti Legal represents institutions and individuals involved in aspects of the acquisition, development, leasing and sale of real property. This portion of the firm's practice focuses on drafting, negotiating, documenting and closing transactions related commercial entities.

Lease Drafting

A lease is both a contract and a document of conveyance of rights to use and presence at and on a property. It is safe practice to have an attorney draft a c lease for an employer or review the document for an employer due to the fact that a commercial lease is affected by both contract and property law principles that may be foreign to any lay person. Parties to a commercial lease are accorded broad latitude and scope in defining their rights and obligations to a lease; therefore, compliance and negotiation are critical to foresee liabilities that could arise in the future during the life of a lease.

Commercial Real-Estate Leases

Fantetti Legal drafts, reviews, and negotiates leases for commercial properties and assists companies with commercial real estate transactions.

Lease Review

In addition to the same principles mentioned above, parties to a commercial lease are accorded broad latitude and scope in defining their rights and obligations to a lease; therefore, compliance and negotiation are critical to foresee liabilities that could arise in the future during the life of a lease. Reviewing a lease can provide the opportunity to insert clauses to protect your rights and to strike other clauses that impair rights.

Landlord/Tenant matters

Landlord-tenant law governs the rental of commercial and residential property. It is composed primarily of state statutory and common law principles. The basis of the legal relationship between a landlord and tenant is grounded in both contract and property law. Disputes can arise from payment obligations, ejection matters, failure to remedy or cure habitability standards, or housing code violations as a few examples. Note: the law prohibits discrimination in the rental market.

Entity Transactions with Real Property

Fantetti Legal assists clients with business transactions that involve the sale or transfer of real property, whether it be through a buy-sell agreement, due diligence of a property transaction for a merger and acquisition, or commercial sale.
