Orlando Commercial Real Estate Transaction Lawyer
A typical commercial real estate transaction generally follows a predictable timeline.
A piece of property (whether or not improved) is selected for potential purchase. At that time, the market is reviewed for comparable sales prices, and verbal discussions are held with the owner to come to an agreement on a potential sales price.
At this point it is important to engage the services of an experienced attorney to prepare an appropriate Letter of Intent to purchase the property, setting forth strategic conditions and the understanding of the parties to move forward with the transaction, with the aim of ultimately preparing a binding contract that will be based on the terms of the Letter of Intent.
As an experienced real estate lawyer, Orlando commercial real estate transaction lawyer Godfrey has prepared hundreds of Letters of Intent and Contracts for the sale and purchase of real property. Having worked both sides of the typical commercial transaction, Mr. Godfrey provides valuable skills on the nuances of the drafting and negotiation process, whether representing the Buyer or the Seller.

Attorney Godfrey can insure that sequential and concurrent due diligence is being conducted in a timely manner to meet Contract requirements. Attorney Godfrey’s experience assures timely, efficient and expeditious handling of the due diligence process to reach a desired Closing Date.
Once under Contract, it is imperative that key factors, such as title, zoning, and geotechnical conditions, are determined to be acceptable. Attorney Godfrey can save his clients needless expenditures, by determining at an early stage whether there are impediments that cannot be reasonably resolved.
