Commercial and residential real estate disputes
There are some major differences between a residential real estate and commercial real estate disputes. The California State Legislature has passed a number of laws regulating residential real estate transactions. One of the most important of those is a statute requiring the seller to make written disclosures about the property being sold describing a number of the attributes of the property, including whether the neighbors are noisy or undesirable. Commercial real estate transactions are less regulated. Basically the law views parties involved in commercial real estate transactions as being more capable of protecting themselves than parties to residential real estate transactions.
