Real Estate Development Benefits All of Hawaii

Commercial real estate projects can positively impact a community in many ways. While our goal is always protecting our clients’ financial interests, we also celebrate their contributions to Hawaii. Your projects house Hawaii’s businesses and services, create jobs in communities and make our state a thriving and beautiful place. We’re proud to help our clients.

Hawaiian Real Estate Developers and Property Managers Face Unique Challenges

Hawaii is a popular location for real estate development and attracts investors, developers, and contractors from all over the world. However, Hawaiian real estate laws are complicated. Without skilled representation from a commercial real estate attorney, it’s easy to make costly mistakes that delay projects, increase overhead, and damage your reputation.

Commercial real estate law covers a wide variety of issues, from landlord-tenant disputes to complex real estate transactions. We work with developers, investors, contractors, construction companies, and other entities that are vital to a real estate developments success. And we help them understand their rights and obligations under Hawaii’s complex laws and regulations.

At DeVries & Associates, we assist our commercial clients with their comprehensive real estate needs, including issues dealing with the following:

  • Acquisition of properties and commercial real estate financing
  • Drafting and negotiating contracts with both sub-contractors and tenants
  • Enforcing contracts when a breach occurs
  • Landlord/tenant disputes about leases, building maintenance, and other matters
  • Land use and zoning compliance
  • Obtaining permits for construction and development

We understand that your specific needs might vary, depending on the type of commercial real estate involved. For example, a condominium development might have very different requirements and challenges than the construction of a healthcare facility or warehouse.

Your project’s location might also impact the laws and regulations involved. Hawaii has both statewide and local real estate laws concerning land use, zoning, environmental protection, and other issues. When you work with a commercial real estate attorney at DeVries & Associates, we’ll help you understand the impact of both state and local laws. We’ll also help you build a customized plan that helps you comply with their requirements and seek variances when necessary. We have extensive experience with both the Hawaii Land Use Commission and local government agencies.
