Justin advised us with our real estate negotiation. Justin was able to mitigate significant areas of risk during the negotiation process - and these were BIG open-ended liabilities. He helped me cap these liabilities and remove others altogether. He pointed out areas where we needed protection, which are almost always slanted to the landlord. He's also introduced Cresa's Consulting team to support us as we expand our e-Commerce platform.

Industrial Building Inspection

Sometimes a simple visual inspection of an industrial building is enough to satisfy a prospective buyer or tenant before they sign a lease or purchase contract. In most cases, it’s not. Relying on a visual inspection is kind of like looking in the mirror to check your cholesterol. Equally worse, relying on a landlord’s broker to comment on condition, age, or lifecycle of building systems can also leave you on the hook to repair the building and its systems much sooner than expected.
