How We Have Helped Clients…
A developer client was purchasing a tract of real property to develop into parcels for retail and restaurants. We negotiated the purchase contract for a multi-phase take-down; assisted the client with due diligence; reviewed the survey, the title insurance commitment, and related title search documents; negotiated numerous easements and restrictive covenants with the seller that would apply after the closing; negotiated the loan documents with the client’s bank for the financing of the purchase; and closed the initial and subsequent phases. We further assisted the client in the development of the property by drafting the easements and covenants that would apply within the development project by the various users and by negotiating triple-net leases with several restaurant chains. We also assisted the client in negotiating the contract and in closing the sale of some of the parcels the client had developed within the project.
