I entered a commercial purchase contract based on the verbal
I entered a commercial purchase contract based on the verbal information provided by the owner and realtor. During the dual diligent period, I reviewed tenant leases and find out that some tenants are not triple-net leases as the owner claimed. That means after the purchase the Net Operation Income (NOI) will be significantly lower than what owner declared. Can I request to renegotiate purchase agreement? If the owner refuses to adjust the purchase price, do I have the right to void the contract and request compensation due to the false information seller provided?
A new home developer (D) has indicated that, if we agree to
A new home developer (D) has indicated that, if we agree to buy the model home currently being used as D's sales office, D would rent it back for (example) 6% of the agreed-to sales price until the community was "built out". We anticipate this to be 2-3 years.We see some advantages to this arrangement, as we would like to live where we are for another 2-3 years. Also, the model home has many enhancements and upgrades which, if we wanted to replicate them, would be extra cost ... or not even be options in a "new build". We also see some complications. How to handle such things as (commercial?) insurance for a house used for business. HOA fees. Taxes. Need for D to convert the garage used as sales office into its intended purpose as a ... garage. Assurance that it would pass a rigorous engineering inspection when D exits. That the building would be maintained in a reasonable "like new" condition at the end of the lease.Can you provide your insights into how a lease agreement would be structured to assure us that we won't get burned? What are the dangers for us? Any advice that you can provide would be appreciated.
We have been renting a shop from a family LLC than
We have been renting a shop from a family LLC for more than 30 years near Seattle Wa. The LLC has recently hired a real estate management company and that company is trying to force us to sign a new lease which includes an increase in the triple net and an incremental rent increase over then next 5 years to more than double what we are paying now. They are also forcing us to pay a "security deposit". The situation with that is that when we first moved into this space, it was not up to code and it was in horrible disrepair. The owner and I had an agreement that i would fix the place up in lieu of any deposits. However, the new manager says that because we dont have anything in writing, that is void and since there are no deposits on file, we have to pay a deposit equal to 2 months rent. Is this all legal? Do we have any recourse?
I am one of 3 brothers whose trusts are members of an LLC
I am one of 3 brothers whose trusts are members of an LLC that holds a Walgreens property in a triple net lease agreement. I am the manager of the LLC and am preparing the forms 8825, 1065, schedule K and K-1. The instructions for rental property LLCs state that the 8825 should be used and the information on the 8825 is then transferred to the 1065 and schedules K and K-1.The LLC's first month of operation was Dec 2015 (before that it was still handled by the bank as executor of the estate). In Dec rental income was 29K and the mortgage payment was 19K leaving net income of 10K. This 10K was divided 3 ways and sent to the trusts.On the form 8825 I identified the 29K gross income and under expenses I put the 19K mortgage loan under "other". Is that correct? Or should I have just claimed the mortgage interest and put that on the interest line?Thanks

A tenant wants out of a commercial lease; what are myView more real estate law questions
A tenant wants out of a commercial lease; what are my obligations under Texas law, & what is a typical response? I own & lease out a 20,000 sq ft building, triple net, $16.00/sq ft, here in Dallas. Its a 5 year lease, signed 3 years ago. As part of thelease I invested $250,000 in improvements. The renter wants to consolidate operations in Mass; they're well heeled. There are no early opt out provisions in the lease. I'd prefer to hold them to the lease. However whats appropriate & typical in this situation?What does Texas law say? Is it more appropriate to charge them 6 mo of rent plus a prorated portion of the $250K in improvements? Thanks,
