The process of putting together a commercial real estate buy/sell agreement continues to become more difficult.  Reps and warranties have become more extensive, laborious in detail, and difficult to negotiate. Financing contingencies have become lengthy and surpassingly complex in reflection of tight underwriting standards.  Due diligence has become lengthier, more invasive and costlier.  At every stage of the process, buyers want additional information, protection and concessions, and sellers want closing certainty.  This program, led by attorneys with several decades experience in commercial real estate, will discuss the major components of commercial real estate buy/sell agreements, negotiating the operative documents and ensuring a successful closing in a difficult market.  

Day 1 – December 6, 2016:

Planning the process – letters of intent, negotiations, closing process
Due diligence depending on the type of deal – title, environmental, entitlement work, tax and finance issues
Understanding the minefield of seller’s reps and warranties 
Buyer and seller’s covenants in a volatile market
Deposits of money

Day 2 – December 7, 2016:

Issues for income producing properties, multiple family properties, and distressed properties
Finance issues in operative agreements, including finance contingencies, and working with commercial lenders
Conditions to closing and reducing the risk of not closing
Post-closing issues, baskets, escrow and contingencies
Bankruptcy issues in operative agreements
