South Florida Commercial Property Dispute State and Federal Court and American Arbitration Association (AAA) Arbitration Attorney:

The phrase “Commercial Real Estate” includes income-producing property, such as office buildings, factories, warehouses, industrial parks, hotels, shopping centers and restaurants.  Commercial property must usually be zoned for business purposes.  It is possible to invest in commercial property directly, or through real estate investment trusts or real estate limited partnerships.  Investors receive income from rents and capital appreciation if the property is sold at a profit.  Investing in commercial property entails large risks, such as nonpayment of rent by tenants or a decline in property values.

The two main claims that arise from investments made in or relating to commercial property are fraud in the solicitation of the investment or mismanagement during the period of time that the investment is owned.
