You are the one who comes up with ideas and recruits others who see your vision. You may be good at rounding up the capital you need in order to make your project a reality. When it comes to the paperwork and complying with Orange County, California and federal laws that may apply to your project, you may not be sure where to start. Developers often turn to others to assist them with these requirements.
From the time you find the perfect piece of property until it is fully leased, you would more than likely benefit from the assistance from an Orange County real estate attorney. When it comes time to negotiate the contract for the purchase of the property, having someone on your side could make all the difference. Signing such an agreement is just the first step.
Thereafter, you will need to conduct a great deal of due diligence before the closing of the land acquisition. You could run into problems such as title issues, entitlement issues and environmental issues. Working through these and other issues could take a substantial amount of work and possibly even require legal action to fix. Then you will need to negotiate construction contracts, and when the project is complete, leases need to be negotiated. Other problems could arise throughout the construction process and with your tenants.
As you can see, it takes much more than just a vision to make venture a success. The more experienced help you have access to, the more smoothly your project could progress. Like other developers, you may need the advice and assistance of an attorney to help you through the legalities and the paperwork.
