LIVE REPLAY: Retail Leases: Restructurings, Subleases, and Insolvency

$89.00

Commercial leases are complex financial documents. There are issues of tenant improvement allowances, how that money is spent by tenants to improve the property, and how the landlord recovers that allowance, in the form of rent, over the term of the lease. There are issues of “CAM,” common area maintenance expenses, that are allocated among tenants. There are issues of rent escalators provisions through the term of the lease. There may also be the fundamental issue of whether the lease is triple or double-net or gross, and what that means from lease to lease.  All of these essential economic factors play a very important role in drafting commercial leases.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to understanding the economics of commercial leases and the drafting issues they raise.    Math of Leases: Essential Calculations to Understand Before Drafting Leases How certain financial metrics or calculations can cause substantial drafting errors Underlying economics of commercial lease provisions Rental start dates, lease years, and annual “elevator” clauses Measurement of usable space, load considerations, and re-measurement Intricacies of determining Common Area Maintenance expenses and proportionate shares Determining gross sales for percentage rent purposes   Speaker: David C. Camp is a partner in the Denver office of Senn Visciano Canges, PC, where he represents clients in all aspects of real estate transactions.  He has extensive experience in leasing, development, construction, financing and ownership issues.  He also has substantial experience in commercial finance matters, most frequently corporate and real estate financing, including mezzanine loans, construction loans, and traditional loan matters.

Subleases & Assignments in Commercial Real Estate, Part 1

$89.00

  Subleasing and assignments are essential instruments for tenants to reduce the size and cost of their space as their needs change. Landlords (and their lenders) often disfavor subleases and assignments because they might lose control of who occupies the space. Subleases come in a variety of forms, all of which need to conform to the provisions of the master lease. Because of this, subleases can quickly become wildly complex, and have the potential to give rise to multiple levels of friction and possibly litigation. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the types of subleases and assignments, key issues for landlords, tenants, and subtenants, and drafting tips   Day 1 : Subleasing v. assignments – when is each used or allowed? Types of subleases – no reference to master leases, reference by incorporation, custom subleases Standards of “reasonableness” in obtaining landlord consent to assignment or sublease Identifying and mitigating risks to tenants and subtenants in subleasing Landlord and lender concerns in subleases and methods to address   Day 2 : Space recapture, profit sharing, and other landlord remedies Restrictions on use in subleases and subtenant risks Non-disturbance agreements with landlord and lender Subtenant remedies when tenant defaults on master lease Most important provisions of lease assignments   Speaker: Michael P. Williams is a partner in the Denver, Colorado office of Senn Visciano Canges, P.C., where he has extensive experience in commercial leasing and tenant relations, acquisition and disposition of office, industrial, retail and multi-family properties, representing real estate professionals in disputes before their boards or in litigation, and advising homeowner associations.  He also assists lenders in pre-foreclosure workouts, foreclosures, loan modifications and servicing REO property needs.  He is a member of the banking law subcommittee of the ABA’s Business Law Section.  Mr. Williams received his B.A. from Colorado State University and his J.D. from the University of Denver College of Law.

Drafting Subleases & Assignments in Commercial Real Estate, Part 2

$89.00

  Subleasing and assignments are essential instruments for tenants to reduce the size and cost of their space as their needs change. Landlords (and their lenders) often disfavor subleases and assignments because they might lose control of who occupies the space. Subleases come in a variety of forms, all of which need to conform to the provisions of the master lease. Because of this, subleases can quickly become wildly complex, and have the potential to give rise to multiple levels of friction and possibly litigation. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the types of subleases and assignments, key issues for landlords, tenants, and subtenants, and drafting tips   Day 1: Subleasing v. assignments – when is each used or allowed? Types of subleases – no reference to master leases, reference by incorporation, custom subleases Standards of “reasonableness” in obtaining landlord consent to assignment or sublease Identifying and mitigating risks to tenants and subtenants in subleasing Landlord and lender concerns in subleases and methods to address   Day 2: Space recapture, profit sharing, and other landlord remedies Restrictions on use in subleases and subtenant risks Non-disturbance agreements with landlord and lender Subtenant remedies when tenant defaults on master lease Most important provisions of lease assignments   Speaker: Michael P.

Escrow Agreements in Real Estate Transactions

They are mechanisms for allocating risk among the parties to the transaction.  Escrow agents are charged with determining whether certain contractual conditions are satisfied, thereby triggering the disbursement of money or property.

This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting effective escrow agreements, risk allocation, conflict avoidance and working with escrow agents. Essential terms – property held, conditions for release/disbursement, fees Defining an agent’s duties, authority, and liability Practical problems with escrow arrangements – holding all the documents, breaking escrow, death of party Issues in construction contracts, development transactions, and property sales Letter of credit, tax and bankruptcy issues to consider   Speakers: John S.

Drafting Ground Leases, Part 1

$89.00

Ground leases are sophisticated contracts combining the elements of buy/sell agreements, commercial leases, and a sophisticated 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 very careful review. This program will provide you with a practical guide to how ground leases work, and negotiating and drafting them.   Day 1: Overview of important provisions of ground leases  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: Major financing issues, including subordination Construction and development issues  Special condemnation and casualty considerations   Speaker: Anthony Licata is a partner in the Chicago office of Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, where he formerly chaired the firm’s real estate practice.  He has an extensive practice focusing on major commercial real estate transactions, including finance, development, leasing, and land use.  He formerly served as an adjunct professor at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and at the Illinois Institute of Technology.  Mr. Licata received his B.S., summa cum laude, from MacMurray College and his J.D., cum laude, from Harvard Law School.   John S.
