Real Estate Issues in Ohio

Corporate Restructuring Law

At Gertz & Rosen, we understand the intricacies of commercial real estate transactions in Ohio, and we’re here to safeguard your interests. Our experienced attorneys offer a wide range of real estate and business law services, providing our clients with comprehensive legal support at every stage of their transaction. At Gertz & Rosen, we work with our clients to provide guidance and advice at the onset of the transaction to negotiate favorably for our clients and protect their interests. Additionally, after closing, we continue the relationship as leasing, acquisitions, and other legal issues arise throughout our clients’ investment in real estate.  Here are a few of the most common case types we handle.

1. Commercial Purchase Agreements

Our attorneys draw on years of experience to help commercial clients draft, review, and negotiate meticulous purchase agreements. We understand the complex process of acquiring and developing commercial property, and we help clients address all potential issues in the transaction, minimizing the risk of future disputes.

2. Residential Purchase Agreements

Every residential purchase agreement needs to be tailored to the specific transaction. Our attorneys help homeowners create and negotiate comprehensive agreements that cover all aspects of the deal, reducing the potential for future disagreements or complications.

3. Real Estate Litigation

Whether you are a property owner, a developer, or a renter, legal issues can arise that require skilled guidance. When disputes escalate to litigation, having a skilled real estate attorney by your side is vital. Gertz & Rosen’s attorneys handle various real estate litigation cases, including property disputes, breach of contract, zoning issues, and more.

4. Commercial Leases

Ohio’s commercial real estate laws can be intricate and ever-evolving. At Gertz & Rosen, we help property owners and managers ensure their lease agreements comply with all relevant regulations. We also help business owners negotiate lease terms that protect their interests when leasing property.

5. Board of Revision/Tax Appeals

In Ohio, complaints related to property values are handled by each county’s Board of Revision (BOR). While the board does not set the tax rate, it does determine the value of a property for tax purposes. Our attorneys are highly knowledgeable about BOR procedures and can assist clients in appealing an unjust property valuation.

6. Contractor & Subcontractor Agreements

Contractor and subcontractor agreements are legal documents that outline the responsibilities and rights of the parties involved in a construction project. These contracts can cover a wide range of topics, such as project scope, payment terms, dispute resolution methods, and more. A real estate attorney can help draft clear, comprehensive contracts that protect your interests.

7. Advising Management Companies and Landlords

We aim to be strategic partners for property management companies and landlords, offering proactive advice and representation that helps you avoid legal pitfalls and thrive in the Ohio real estate market. We help clients draft lease agreements and navigate landlord-tenant disputes with confidence. From issues related to maintenance and repairs to handling security deposits and late fees, our team can provide legal advice tailored to your specific situation. We help commercial clients make informed decisions that mitigate risks and promote growth.  Successfully investing in real estate requires planning and industry knowledge necessary to help our clients achieve their investment goals.

At Gertz & Rosen, our goal is to provide you with comprehensive legal services that go beyond just problem-solving. Our team at Gertz & Rosen brings a wealth of experience to Ohio real estate matters. We’ve built our reputation on our commitment to professionalism and personalized service.
