The real estate team at Tully Rinckey Ireland holds over 25 years of experience representing property developers, housing and government bodies, and individuals on large-scale, mixed retail, commercial and residential real estate projects. Our Partners are also well-versed in advising clients on the property and planning aspects of renewable energy projects.

Commercial real estate transactions require the assistance of an experienced real estate Solicitor who is well-versed in all aspects of buying and selling properties for commercial purposes.  Transactions may involve multiple parties as well as financial institutions, tax advisors, engagement with other service providers such as architects, engineers, building contractors and other professionals.

Several issues arise for consideration on a site acquisition to include whether the site is suitable for the proposed business operation, that there is no contamination on the site or in any pre-existing buildings.  The availability of services, water, sewerage etc. and other infrastructure aspects are key.  Where access for services and easements are required over third party land it is key to establish that legally binding agreements are in place with the parties and that there is a full understanding of the rights and obligations of all parties.

We advise both business owners and property owners on the negotiation of lease terms.  This will involve providing assistance in the negotiation of commercial terms, e.g. the rent review mechanism to be applied, extent of the repair obligation being assumed, addressing dilapidations on the exercise of a break option or termination etc.  We have acted in putting in place anchor tenancies in shopping centers, large scale office and retail developments and large scale industrial developments.

Commercial real estate ventures can be structured in a variety of ways, and inevitably will vary according to the scope of the project and the number of parties and properties involved. Financing, tax structures, exit arrangements, and many other issues should be taken into consideration at point of purchase.  It is important to seek the guidance of a knowledgeable real estate Solicitor coupled with taxation advice to determine the most appropriate structure for your commercial real estate venture.

We act in high volume acquisitions of residential properties acquired by funders /investors and leased to housing bodies to meet social housing needs.  We provide a title analysis on each acquisition with clear recommendations to proceed or flag items which require a commercial decision by the acquirer.  We have established agreed protocols with the Housing Agency, local authorities, and approved housing bodies which have assisted in streamlining the process of long term leasing of social housing for all parties.
