The Basics of Veterinary Real Estate

Veterinary real estate encompasses more than just the physical space where you provide care; it's a strategic asset that can enhance or hinder your practice's growth and efficiency. Key elements include:

  • Location: The cornerstone of any real estate decision, a prime location ensures accessibility for clients and visibility within the community. Consider traffic patterns, competition, and local demographics.
  • Size and Layout: The size must accommodate current needs and allow for future growth. A thoughtful layout promotes efficient workflow and a positive experience for clients and their pets.
  • Zoning and Regulations: Not all properties are zoned for veterinary use. It's essential to confirm that your intended use is permitted by local laws to avoid costly legal challenges and delays.

Veterinary real estate decisions must also factor in the potential for expansion, parking availability, and accessibility for disabled clients. Each of these elements plays a vital role in the long-term success and sustainability of the practice.

This is where Mahan Law provides trustworthy advice and counsel explicitly tailored to the veterinary real estate sector. We guide our clients through zoning regulations, negotiate terms to secure the best possible deal, and ensure that all legal documentation accurately reflects their interests. Our proactive approach minimizes risks and streamlines the acquisition or expansion process, allowing you to focus on what you do best—caring for animals.

Legal Considerations 

Navigating the legal landscape of veterinary real estate requires a comprehensive understanding of the laws and regulations that govern property transactions and use. Key legal considerations include:

  • Zoning Laws: Ensure the property is zoned for veterinary services, as some areas may restrict commercial or medical use.
  • Environmental Regulations: Be aware of any environmental assessments required for the property, especially in an area previously used for industrial purposes.
  • Property Inspections: Comprehensive inspections are vital to identifying structural issues and complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  • Lease Agreements: If leasing, scrutinize the terms to protect your practice's interests, including renovation and lease termination clauses.

Mahan Law will work closely with you to address these considerations and protect your investment from potential legal entanglements. We will leverage our skills and experience to ensure your practice's foundation is solid and adheres to all legal standards.
