Once you’ve narrowed down areas where your treatment center will be properly zoned, it’s time to start looking at real estate. Opening a new drug and alcohol treatment facility gives you a wide range of options when it comes to real estate. Whether there’s a vacant lot you’re looking at to construct a brand new facility or you’re going to convert some type of other building into your treatment center, it’s important to have a lawyer there for you to ensure that you’re protecting your bottom line as well as your rights.
No matter what the industry is when it comes to commercial real estate, the local laws in place are what matter the most to ensure that you’re going to reach profitability. A lawyer who understands commercial real estate law can help you whether you’re the owner of the property or the lessee.
If you’re leasing the property from a landlord, the lawyer will help you draft up all of the legal documents you need to ensure that all negotiations and sales agreements are met. A real estate lawyer can also help ensure that all of the specifics of the zoning regulations are met throughout this process as well.
By working with a lawyer, you can rest assured that you’re working with someone who has worked with buyers, sellers, landlords, real estate agents, title insurers, lenders as well as mortgage companies. When you have someone with this much experience by your side, you can focus on some of the other aspects of opening up your drug and alcohol rehab center. You can expect your lawyer to work hard for you throughout the negotiations of your new investment so you’re getting the deal that you’re looking for. The lawyer will also be a great asset to turn to when it’s time to renegotiate the lease later down the line.
