Areas of Expertise
In all matters related to the acquisition and disposition of commercial property our team takes your specific needs and circumstances into account when assisting you in the negotiation and completion of your transaction.
Should borrowers require legal advice on the financing component of real estate transactions, we offer practical solutions for both secured and unsecured financing needs. When negotiating these financing commitments for you, we focus on solving critical issues from the outset to avoid them turning into bigger problems down the road.
Landlords, asset/property management companies and tenants frequently call upon us for their commercial, retail and industrial leasing matters. Be it single tenant buildings, shopping centers or mixed-use office/retail complexes, our team has over 30 years of experience in finding solutions for all sorts of leasing issues within the legal framework.
The scope of services we provide also covers real estate development projects of all sizes. We support your project needs in all stages of the process from municipal approval through construction to the ultimate sale of the units. It is of upmost importance in these types of projects to understand your obligations under the Real Estate Development and Marketing Act. Our lawyers will advise you on compliance with these requirements.
As real estate transactions and development projects tend to be complex in nature, clients have been relying on us for assistance with the set-up of suitable and tax-efficient structures such as joint ventures, partnerships and other ownership arrangements.
Working with Boughton Law gives you access to a team of lawyers and support staff who are experienced in trouble-shooting issues inherent to real estate projects. Real estate disputes, mortgage and lease enforcement remedies as well as environmental issues are only some examples of unexpected challenges that may arise and require proper attention during your project.
