Dissolutions of partnerships in real estate might be all business, but sometimes they get personal

In most cases, partners go into real estate to support each other and maximize business potential while sharing investment costs and day-to-day operations. Unfortunately, the dreams of ‘synergy’ and a ’balanced work-load’ sometimes turn into a nightmare of animosity and you doing all the work. Other times, key stakeholders may need to pull out of the agreement for one reason or another. Or changes in life and business situations require a shift in a corporation’s organizational structure and partnerships. When this happens, investors go through what we call a “partner dissolution,” or more colloquially, a “business divorce.”

Sometimes, the partners are partners in life as well as business. Married couples may have to divide their portfolio of commercial properties and their personal belongings and home residence when terminating the marriage. As you might imagine, this makes two already-complicated legal scenarios an even more involved and emotionally fraught process.

No matter the partners’ extra-business relationship, partnership dissolutions can lead to undesirable outcomes like losing business opportunities, income, equity, and even facing increased tax expenses. Not to mention the personal considerations that sometimes play a part in a business divorce or marital dissolution. When these partners have significant commercial real estate holdings, that is where the Moschetti Law Group comes in.
