CRE owners may believe that smart cities are unlikely to impact the existing built environment, or that the timing is too far out to consider seriously. However, some evolving trends are likely to impact the CRE industry faster than expected. Growing government focus, rapid advances in technology, and innovative solutions to improve urban life should compel the industry to prepare and respond to the changes in the ecosystem.

Completion Guaranties in Construction Lending: Key Provisions for Lenders and Guarantors

A principal concern for the construction lender is that the borrower will fail to complete the project on budget, leaving the lender to oversee the construction and to fund cost overruns. Under a completion guaranty, the sponsor or other qualified third party agrees to complete the project and is responsible for the payment of cost overruns. Construction lenders will typically include a carry component to the completion guaranty, and/or a separate carry guaranty, which requires the guarantor to pay debt service and other carry costs until the project is completed or reaches stabilization or until the loan is repaid. Listen as our authoritative panel examines various aspects of completion guaranties and provisions that are high priority concerns for lenders and guarantors. The panel will also discuss provisions that can limit a guarantor's obligations under the guaranty and factors that might affect the ability of counsel to negotiate those provisions.
