Blue skies are back in Clearwater and Tampa. But hurricane Irma has taken it’s toll on Florida. I pray that your family and friends are safe and unharmed.
After leaving devastation in Miami, Naples, and Ft. Myers, Hurricane Irma hit Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Daytona Beach, and everything inside of that at the same time.
Jacksonville felt Irma’s wrath seemingly out of nowhere. At one time, Irma was over Jacksonville, Savannah, Atlanta, Panama City, and Tallahassee at the same time.
This hurricane was unprecedented.
Many businesses and real estate investments will be negatively affected for a very long time. Your goal should be to get on top of the issues you will face as soon as possible.
Commercial Real Estate Litigation
You may be faced with significant losses and may not know where to turn. Who is responsible? Tenants will seek to hold their commercial landlord liable under their lease contracts. Leases often include terms and provisions governing how much rent must still be paid under partial destruction to premises. Landlords will expect their tenants to honor their leases. Insurance disputes will develope.
You can almost always better your results by being proactive.
Who will pay for cancelled business deals, failure to close on real estate purchase contracts, and incomplete yet partially destroyed construction imorovements? You may be faced with the dissolution of your business which can lead to creditor claims and shareholder disputes.
In this mine field, you must take stock of your situation and form a plan. Contact an experienced business and commercial real estate attorney to see if you need to prepare for court action.
