Underlying virtually every real estate transaction are extensive representations and warranties, generally from the seller to the buyer, or lessor to lessee about certain essential matters that cannot be independently verified.  The contractual provisions ensure that the basic assumptions of the parties – that the property is in a certain condition, there is no threatened litigation and are no binding third-party contracts, no ADA or environmental violations, etc. – are in fact true; and if they are not true, the party in the position to know the truth or falsity of the facts is liable for damages.  These provisions are essential to every real estate transaction.  This program will provide you with a real-world guide to drafting and negotiating reps and warranties in commercial real estate transactions.
