What Is Commercial Real Estate?

Commercial real estate or commercial property law involves real estate ownership, use, and sale for commercial reasons. It involves negotiating contracts and leases, acquiring funding, zoning and land use constraints, and complying with tax and environmental regulations. Commercial real estate is protected by many regulatory restrictions and safeguards because it is a valuable asset.

Commercial real estate includes the type of property that is used in business deals as well as multiunit rental properties because they create commercial activity for landlords.

Commercial properties are typically categorized into 4 types based on the function each property has:

  1. Office space
  2. Industrial use
  3. Retail
  4. Multifamily rental units

Some examples of commercial properties include:

  • Healthcare facilities
  • Hotels
  • Restaurants
  • Strip malls

What Parties Are Involved in Commercial Real Estate?

Commercial real estate transactions typically involve buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants, and lenders. Other parties may also be involved depending on your situation. Commercial business law covers the development, use, and maintenance of commercial property and also provides a structure for resolving complex conflicts and defending the legal rights of the parties involved.

Because commercial real estate law is always evolving, it is important to seek counsel from an experienced Daytona real estate lawyer before making any decisions.

What Is a Mechanic's Lien?

A mechanic’s lien is a legal claim against a property and is typically submitted by subcontractors who have not received payment for work they have done on a property.

What is the Ohio Mechanic’s Lien Statute of Limitations?

The time limit for when a mechanics’ lien may be filed depends on the type of project that was completed. For commercial projects, the subcontractor has 75 days from the last day that materials or labor was provided to file a lien. If it was a residential project, the subcontractor has 60 days.

If you are a homeowner who has received an Affidavit of Mechanics’ Lien, you have the option of serving the lienholder (the subcontractor who filed the lien) a Notice to Commence Suit or not. The Notice will let the lienholder know that they must sue in order to enforce the lien or else, it will be lost. They must complete this within 60 days. If you do not file a Notice to Commence Suit, then the Mechanics’ Lien will expire after 6 years.
