Commercial Leases:  California Modifies Disclosure Requirements for Disability Access Laws (Effective January 1, 2017) California’s 2013 update to Civil Code Section 1938 requires all commercial property leases to disclose whether or not commercial premises have undergone an inspection by a Certified Access Specialist (CASp), and if so, whether the premises have been determined to meet all applicable construction-related accessibility standards under California law. On September 16, 2016, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law Assembly Bill 2093. This bill amends Section 1938 to impose additional disclosure requirements on commercial property owners and lessors. Under the revised statute, a commercial lease effective on or after January 1, 2017, must now disclose not only whether the premises have undergone a CASp inspection (and the results, if any), but also certain additional obligations.

  FOREIGN INVESTOR SERVICES

 Our firm offers specialized legal services in connection with the acquisition, development, construction, management and disposition of real estate for foreign investors interested in acquiring real estate in the United States. Foreign investors have, in recent years, intensified efforts to acquire prime property in the United States. These intensified efforts are due, in part, to the relative security associated with doing business in the United States and, in part, to the high return potential associated with well-located U.S. properties. Typically, United States real estate exhibits the following characteristics: numerous investment opportunities, priced attractively, particularly when compared to real estate in other countries; an organized and efficient real estate market which functions according to relatively predictable processes; the general availability of long-term fully amortized non-recourse mortgage financing at relatively low interest rates when compared to other countries; and the consistent ability of well-located properties to increase in value at rates which may often exceed the rate of inflation. If you are considering investing in real estate in the United States, please contact us.

For us, that is just the beginning. We also strive to produce the best possible legal product your money can buy and produce it in a timely manner at a reasonable cost.
