Real Estate Development Law

Real estate development is a complex undertaking by its very nature and involves significant challenges and risks. From land acquisition to designing, financing, contract negotiation, and construction – every step needs to be planned and executed with great care. Even the slightest mistake or oversight on your part can lead to unexpected delays or litigation, which can derail your project and result in financial losses for all the parties involved.

The Texas real estate lawyers at Kelly Legal Group have an in-depth understanding of the phases involved in a real estate development project and have extensive experience in representing residential as well as commercial real estate developers. We can provide legal counsel, protect your business interests, and offer creative solutions to advance your business goals.

Why You Need an Experienced Real Estate Lawyer on Your Side

Save Time

The complexity of real estate development and redevelopment projects has greatly increased over the years – thanks to the constantly changing laws and regulations at the local and state levels. As a developer, you simply cannot afford to invest the amount of time and effort needed to do due diligence reviews, risk analysis, and deal with legalities associated with real estate acquisition and development. Our proven Texas real estate lawyers can take care of all these things for you so that you can focus on what matters the most to you – your business.

Draft, Review, and Negotiate Contracts

During the course of your project, you might have to sign a number of contracts with suppliers, contractors, lenders, consultants, and several other third parties. Our legal team can draft and review all the necessary agreements, negotiate the terms on your behalf, and make sure your rights and business interests are protected. We advise clients on all critical aspects of the contract terms and conditions before they sign on the dotted line.

Obtain the Permits and Licenses Needed

Part of what makes real estate development so complex is that there are approvals, permits, and licenses to be obtained at every step of the process. Depending on the nature and scale of your project, obtaining these permits can take longer than you expect, which in turn can delay your project. In some cases, the required approvals might not be granted at all.

To avoid such problems, our land use and economic development lawyers will work closely with you right from the start of the project, use our connections in local governments as well as state offices to expedite the process of getting the required approvals and make sure your project is not delayed or stalled at any stage.

Dispute Resolution

Nothing can delay or derail a real estate project like a legal dispute. If you are not careful, what starts as a minor dispute can turn into a protracted legal battle, which can cost you a great deal of time and money. Owing to their legal knowledge and experience, our real estate lawyers can predict potential legal issues that might arise over the course of your project and take steps to prevent them to the extent possible. If and when an issue comes up, we will try to resolve it as fast as we can to make sure it does not impact your project – financially or otherwise.
