Professional Transactions by Lawyers with In-Depth Industry Experience

Each year, Harpst Becker handles tens of millions of dollars in commercial real estate transactions including offices, warehouses, mixed-use, retail, and lumberyards, to name a few. Our deep experience makes it possible for us to identify any potential pitfalls, restrictions and contingencies of a real estate deal, enabling us to ask the right questions so our clients can make a confident, informed decision.</>

At Harpst Becker, we believe in an honest, transparent process.

We do not like surprises – especially when it comes to legal matters. Our open, transparent process walks our clients through every nuance of the real estate transaction to ensure complete understanding. Key steps to our process include:

  • Identifying the real estate asset
  • Negotiating the Letter of Intent
  • Writing the Letter of Intent
  • Negotiating the terms of sale, purchase or lease
  • Conducting Due Diligence including Environmental Analysis, Title Examination and Zoning
  • Closing

Harpst Becker can help with real estate due diligence issues in Ohio and 11 other states.

In today’s marketplace, it is common to have facilities, offices and warehouses in several states. That’s why we partner with counsel in 11 other states – ensuring you have proper local representation where you need it without having to find and retain several different law firms. Our out-of-state network includes attorneys in:

Guiding our clients is not just our job, it’s our passion.

We pride ourselves in forming meaningful relationships with our clients and understand that while we deal with real estate transactions every day, they do not. From helping clients identify methods of securing credit for high dollar real estate transactions, to simply introducing them to our title company partner, we stand with our clients through every phase of the deal.

Commercial real estate transactions come in many forms and sizes. We know them all. Talk to Todd Harpst to hear more.
