Commercial Real Estate Disputes


Commercial Real Estate Disputes

Commercial real estate refers to a property that is solely used for business purposes, such as a shopping mall, gas station, or office building. Commercial litigation disputes commonly arise between:

  • the vendor and purchaser of a commercial property;
  • the owner of the commercial property and a contractor or subcontractor; and
  • the landlord and tenant of a commercial property.

Agreements of Purchase and Sale

An agreement of purchase and sale is the agreement between the buyer and seller to purchase property. It is a contract that outlines the specific duties and requirements of each party that must be fulfilled in order for the transaction to close. This is where disputes may often arise between the vendor and purchaser of a commercial property.

At Walker Law, we understand that purchasing commercial real estate may be one of the biggest investments you ever make. As the seller, you will also want to ensure that the transaction closes smoothly. When there is a disagreement between the parties, you can trust that Walker Law litigators are ready to assist you. 

Construction Liens

A construction lien is a claim that is placed on commercial (or residential) property by a contractor or subcontractor when the owner of the property does not satisfy payment of an invoice for work done to the property. A construction lien is burdensome as it makes it almost impossible to sell or refinance the property.

Walker Law real estate litigators can assist you with having a construction lien placed or remove a construction lien as soon as possible. Our litigation lawyers have knowledge of the Construction Lien Act and will apply our knowledge to help you find a resolution.

Commercial Landlord and Tenant Disputes

Occasionally the person who operates the business will also be the owner of the commercial property. More often than not, the building is owned by a commercial landlord and rented to a tenant. Disputes commonly arise between commercial landlords and tenants regarding the lease, payment of rent or maintenance of the premises, etc.

Our trial lawyers have thorough knowledge of the Commercial Tenancies Act and can help you negotiation a resolution.
