Real Estate

Lynch Rowin's vast real estate background extends to many categories, including:

We have represented a wide gamut of clients, ranging from a nonprofit housing group who challenged a zoning ordinance on constitutional grounds, to a national retail chain involved in disputes related to the interpretation of lease provisions.  We represent both landlords and tenants in these matters.
 
We recently represented a commercial retail landlord who was litigating a guarantee signed by his subtenant.  The subtenant, a shell corporation with no assets, violated the sublease by vacating the premises and failing to pay rent.  We successfully prosecuted the case against the subtenant's principals, each of whom had executed personal guarantees. 

Lynch Rowin's attorneys are also well versed in intricate real estate developments and acquisitions.  Recently, we represented an auto dealership in a number of complicated matters related to its acquisition of adjoining properties, including one situation in which an adjoining property owner claimed our client's option to purchase violated the rule against perpetuities.  Another dispute involved the client's right to title.  Our attorneys prevailed on all fronts, and the client successfully acquired all of the adjoining properties.
