Pennsylvania Commercial Leasing Laws 

Commercial leasing laws are nothing like residential ones and can vary from state to state. Businesses conducting real estate purchases and leases may need help navigating the patchwork of laws and regulations that apply to the commercial market. At The Cooney Law Offices, we understand Pennsylvania commercial leasing laws and can help you understand the rules and regulations that may impact your business and leasing decisions. 
Most commercial tenants are not afforded the same rights as residential tenants. Pennsylvania landlords have no legal responsibility to mitigate damages to their property unless specifically outlined in the commercial lease. Additionally, specific language and terms added to a lease can override particular tenant and landlord protections. 
Before signing on the dotted line and entering into any commercial lease, allow an experienced attorney to review the lease terms. Do not risk entering into an unfair or unbalanced leasing agreement. Let a real estate attorney review all agreements to protect your personal and professional interests.  

Commercial Real Estate Disclosure Laws 

Another difference between real estate and residential property is that residential property owners must disclose significant issues with the property to potential buyers, or they risk opening themselves up to lawsuits. The same is not always true for commercial properties. There are more relaxed standards for commercial properties, meaning the burden of due diligence is on your shoulders. You must inspect the property and discover potential issues for yourself. 

Working with a knowledgeable commercial real estate attorney at The Cooney Law Offices means you have access to the knowledge and resources of experienced lawyers who can investigate and uncover issues before they become problems for you and your business.

Commercial Real Estate and Leasing Litigation 

Due to the complexities involved in commercial real estate transactions, the potential for litigation always exists. When the other side fails to uphold their end of the purchase agreement or leasing terms, litigation may be the best option for resolving property issues and real estate disputes. 
At The Cooney Law Offices, we have an extensive track record of helping business clients resolve commercial property issues. Whether you are a seller, buyer, tenant, or landlord, we know how to move through the Pennsylvania court system effectively. Our goal is to secure the most favorable result possible according to the circumstances of your situation. We can help you with:
  • Breach of contract in the sale, purchase, or lease of a property
  • Construction litigation
  • Land use and zoning appeals
  • Adverse possession and quiet title claims
  • Real estate ownership disputes 
  • Boundary lines and easement disputes 
  • Commercial lease eviction disputes 
  • Eminent domain 

We want to protect you, your assets, and your business. Do not let litigation slow down your plans or progress. Enlist the help of a seasoned commercial real estate attorney. Our legal team can explore all your legal options and aggressively work to resolve real estate disputes.
