Commercial and Rural Properties

At Biz Lawyers & Advisory, we understand that purchasing a commercial or rural property is a major investment, and we are committed to providing our clients with the guidance and support they need to make informed decisions. Our experienced team of property lawyers can help you navigate the complex legal and practical aspects of purchasing a commercial or rural property, and we set out some of the important considerations below.

Buying Commercial Properties:

  • 1.

    Leases and Tenants: If the property is currently leased, it is important to review the terms of the lease agreement and understand the rights and obligations of the tenant. Our lawyers can assist you in reviewing lease agreements and ensuring that the terms are appropriate and reasonable.

  • 2.

    Environmental Issues: Commercial properties can often be subject to a range of environmental regulations and requirements, including issues related to contamination and hazardous waste. Our team can review any environmental reports and ensure that you are aware of any potential environmental issues associated with the property.

  • 3.

    Title and Ownership: It is important to ensure that the title to the property is clear and free from any encumbrances or defects. Our lawyers can assist in reviewing title documents and other ownership-related issues to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the ownership structure of the property.

Buying Rural Properties:

  • 1.

    Zoning and Land Use: One of the key considerations when purchasing a rural property is the zoning and land use restrictions that apply. Our lawyers can help you understand the relevant zoning laws and regulations, and advise you on the permitted land uses and any potential restrictions that may apply.

  • 2.

    Access and Easements: Rural properties often have complex access arrangements and easements that need to be considered when purchasing. Our team can review the title and other relevant documents to ensure that you understand the access arrangements, and any obligations and restrictions that may apply.

  • 3.

    Water and Natural Resources: Rural properties often have significant water and natural resource assets, such as dams, creeks, and wetlands. Our lawyers can advise you on the relevant water rights and permits that may be required, and help you understand any environmental or conservation issues that may apply.

  • 4.

    Planning Approvals and Permits: If you plan to develop the property, you may need to obtain various planning approvals and permits.

  • 5.

    Due Diligence: Rural properties often have unique issues that need to be considered, such as soil and land quality, pest and weed management, and infrastructure requirements. Our lawyers can conduct a thorough due diligence review of the property to identify any potential issues or risks, and advise you on the best way to proceed.
