Fausone Bohn, LLP’s real estate transactions and land use practice serves the needs of all types and sizes of developers, builders, and property owners throughout Michigan. We work with both buyers and sellers to make standard real estate transactions progress smoothly. We work with some of the state’s largest commercial developers to get the vital variances, approvals, and zoning permits they need. Whether you are a first-time real estate investor or a big box store with an expanding footprint, our firm’s real estate legal team will help get your project to the finish line.
Routine and Complex Real Estate Transactions
We work with both buyers and sellers to make standard commercial real estate transactions work for all parties. We regularly engage in drafting and reviewing all types of commercial real estate contracts. In addition, we represent commercial clients in complex property transactions, often assisting with matters relevant to environmental challenges such as:
- Hazardous waste site cleanups
- Underground storage tank removals
- Initiating comprehensive environmental management systems
- Supervising ISO 14000 certification
Tax Abatement and Incentives
We regularly help Michigan businesses take advantage of tax abatements and incentives whenever possible, particularly during the planning phases of their real estate projects and ventures. For instance, we regularly work with clients in the manufacturing and high-tech sectors to take advantage of available industrial property tax abatements. We also help clients seeking to leverage incentives for brownfield site cleanup and redevelopment projects. We work closely with regulators and municipal, state, and federal governments to increase incentives and reduce project overhead in connection with urban development projects.
Eminent Domain & Property Rights
Our eminent domain attorneys have decades of experience working with cities, county drain commissions, county road commissions, bridge authorities, pipeline authorities, and utility companies to find the best solutions possible when our clients’ properties face eminent domain actions. We regularly help clients by:
- Successfully negotiating for fair compensation, saving our clients time and money
- Retaining and supervising qualified professionals — appraisers, engineers, and others — to assess the effects of the government project on the property owner’s business operations and property rights, and ensure compliance with project construction and design parameters
- Representing them in condemnation proceedings and appeals
Real Estate and Construction Law Litigation
Our experienced Michigan trial lawyers leverage the backing of our full-service law firm in representing our clients in lawsuits concerning real estate matters, construction law disputes, and other business-related civil litigation conflicts. While we will seek to settle matters using alternative dispute resolution options when feasible, our lawyers are experienced litigators who will not hesitate to defend our clients’ interests in court when necessary.
