Purchasing Real Estate in the Metaverse: Establishing NFTs, IP Rights, Jurisdiction, Venue, Foreclosure, Governing Law

August 11, 2022 | 1:00 PM EDT

Digital property owners are hoping to be the early entrants--the equivalent of owners of property on New York's Madison Avenue or the Hollywood Hills before they were developed. Just as in the real world, virtual property owners are exploring ways to further monetize their virtual real estate assets. With that opportunity comes risks, both analogous to real estate ownership, but also unique to digital assets. In the real world, property owners have a deed that gives them a reasonably unassailable claim on their land (assuming a locale with reliable property laws). That claim is more easily lost in the metaverse given the risk of theft and even the collapse of the platform on which the land exists. Owners of virtual property must store their tokens in a "wallet," which is a method of storing the private keys to crypto assets. Theft of crypto assets from digital wallets is possible as wallet holders fall susceptible to exploits or otherwise fail to ensure the safety of their assets. Mortgages have now appeared in the metaverse to help finance this virtual real estate boom. This new virtual real estate market is regulated by existing law but there is little specific guidance on how loan enforcement, foreclosure, or bankruptcy might affect virtual real estate and virtual mortgages. Significant questions abound over what will happen if there are legal disputes over whether or not a loan is in default and potential due process arguments that could be made by borrowers. The loan documents need to consider how a virtual lender can ensure that it enforces its security interest in virtual collateral. Finally, a digital property owner should be aware that there is no guaranty that the owners of the platform in which the property exists will continue to operate the platform, or even remain in business. The major metaverse platforms make it clear in their legal terms that they are not responsible for keeping their platforms accessible. Owners will need to know their rights in the event of a failure of a platform provider. Listen as our expert panel discusses real estate purchases in the metaverse. The panel will address the key provisions that the mortgage and financing documentation will need to include for these metaverse contracts.

As we emerge from the pandemic and start to reoccupy buildings, a healthy, safe and productive workplace is more important than ever for employees, tenants and visitors. In an environment where operating costs are balanced against the occupants’ experience, innovative new technologies and the rethinking of traditional building operations and maintenance processes are not just desired but a critical component of this changing paradigm. This series examines what smarter buildings of the future look like. We are witnessing an ever-increasing number of devices connected to building networks, producing voluminous amounts of data. In this session, we explore methodologies for collection, transportation, normalization, integration, analysis, and protection of data.

Negotiating CAM Provisions in Commercial Leases: Standard Inclusions, Capped CAM, Fixed Costs, and Gross Leases

July 12, 2022 | 1:00 PM EDT

Commercial leases often require tenants in a multi-tenant development (such as a shopping center or office building) to pay CAM charges in addition to monthly rent. These lease provisions often are misunderstood or taken for granted by landlords and tenants and, as a result, are frequently violated, knowingly or otherwise. Sophisticated tenants require CAM charges to be "actually paid or incurred" or "expended" by the landlord to be reimbursable, and they are careful to prohibit landlords from passing their overhead on as disguised CAM charges. To guard against this practice, tenants should negotiate (and then review) their leases carefully, require landlords to deliver "reasonably detailed statements" of CAM charges as often as the lease requires, and should scrutinize those statements to ensure that all charges are allowed by the lease. CAM charges often include property management fees. In addition, most leases permit the landlord to estimate CAM charges and force tenants to pay their share of those estimates monthly. Generally, they require the landlord to reconcile or justify the actual CAM charges to its tenant after the end of each year. Commercial landlords that also manage the project themselves often charge tenants, in addition to CAM expenses incurred, an arbitrary, "industry standard" percentage of the rent as "a property management fee," even though the lease does not expressly provide for that, and no third-party management fees are paid or incurred by the landlord. When the CAM charges are based on actual costs, a tenant might want to negotiate a cap on how much they will be required to pay for their share of common area maintenance. Putting a cap on CAM charges helps protect the tenant from their lease expenses increasing outside of their budget or sudden surprises at the beginning of the year. In turn, this adds some risk to the landlord to cover additional expenses themselves. With fixed CAM charges, property owners set a flat fee for common area maintenance and usually add small annual increases to that fee to cover the cost of inflation. Tenants may still want to review the property expenses to ensure their CAM charges aren't significantly higher than they should be. Fixed CAM charges can either apply to property taxes, insurance, and actual maintenance costs or only to maintenance costs while leaving the property taxes and insurance adjustable. Listen as our authoritative panel discusses the best practices in negotiating CAM provisions, what types of provisions to include, and when to choose between a capped or fixed cost CAM provision.
