Austin, TX Real Estate Transaction Negotiation

Real estate agents in Texas and other states, are limited in the type of information they can provide. While they can facilitate the purchase of commercial real estate, they cannot provide the answers you need to maximize the profitability of the transaction. The Austin corporate real estate attorneys at SLG have decades of legal experience, business instincts, and capital market connections to provide you with dependable counsel that meets the needs of your individual company while protecting you from pitfalls.

SLG real estate attorneys in the Texas area provide seller-side and buyer-side representation. For sellers, we will help you identify any potential judgments, title problems, zoning matters, and other issues that could affect the current and future property value. For buyers, we can identify any encumbrances or potential problems that might reduce the asking price.

SLG’s job is to help your Austin company minimize litigation risk and position disputes and streamline the transaction process. If a dispute does arise, we will zealously represent your interests in litigation.

Austin businesses have numerous options when it comes to taking ownership of a piece of real estate. The Austin corporate attorneys at SLG will work with your company to understand your business plan, your immediate and long-term goals, and work closely with you to understand the benefits and risks of any real estate transaction you pursue. Our Austin real estate attorneys focus on adding value to every decision you involve us in. We help companies create LLCs and partnerships to hold the title of real property as well as structure joint ventures and tenancies.

Austin Real Estate Attorneys Provide Strategic Tax Planning for Austin Businesses

Owning commercial real estate has certain tax advantages. Our Texas real estate attorneys will help your company maximize deductions after the purchase of a piece of real estate. Maintenance costs and more are potential deductions. By keeping a strict ledger of your company’s expenditures in terms of real property, we can help make your business more profitable.

Austin Business Contingency Plans

Detailed contingency plans are becoming more relevant in a post-COVID world. Few would have been able to predict a nationwide moratorium on evictions while the American public suffered massive job loss. Such contingencies can have a major impact on your income, the value of real property, and if you’re not careful, could force you to sell off major assets to ensure your company’s future solvency.

While contingency plans cannot foresee everything, having one in place will ensure that your company is not among those that do not survive the unforeseeable exigency.

Certain clauses commonly reviewed by our Austin real estate attorneys such as force majeure clauses pertaining to circumstances beyond your control can resolve disputes emerging from natural disasters, pandemics, and more. SLG Austin represents both tenants and landlords in matters pertaining to leases, rent, construction, hazardous materials, insurance, and sublet provisions.
