Ground leases are sophisticated contracts combining the elements of a buy/sell agreement, a conventional commercial lease, and a financing.  A landowner enters a long-term lease with a developer who constructs a building or other improvements on the land.  The developer generally finances the building, occupying it or leasing it out to other tenants, paying the landowner rent on the underlying ground over a long period of time.  There are many benefits of ground leases for the landowner and the tenant.  But they are very complex agreements involving sophisticated economic calculations and require special drafting.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to understanding how ground leases work, and negotiating and drafting the underlying document.

Day 1 – September 27, 2016:

• Overview of important provisions of ground leases
• Understanding the underlying economics of ground leases
• Permitted use and change of use
• Methodologies for setting and adjusting rent to reflect risk and value over time

Day 2 – September 28, 2016:

• Major financing issues, including subordination
• Construction and development issues
• Special condemnation and casualty considerations
