Corporate Transparency Act for Real Estate Borrowers and Lenders: New Federal Reporting Requirements

The CTA establishes beneficial ownership disclosure and reporting requirements for any newly formed and existing corporation, LLC or partnership which files formation documents in any state. Real estate counsel must understand the disclosure and other requirements of the CTA, including what constitutes a "beneficial owner" and the entities to which it applies. Any entity that has filed formation documents in any state is considered a "reporting company" for purposes of the CTA, subject to certain exemptions. Newly formed entities must submit a disclosure of its beneficial owners to FinCEN at the time of formation, and existing entities must file the disclosure within two years. A reporting company must also provide updated information to FinCEN within one year upon a change in beneficial ownership. Failure to comply with the new CTA reporting requirements will result in serious penalties. Failure to meet the reporting standards may result in civil penalties of up to $500 per day, and any individual who willfully provides false or fraudulent information may face criminal fines up to $10,000 and/or imprisonment for up to two years. The CTA adds a new layer of reporting and compliance requirements for lenders in real estate finance transactions. Lenders will need to reassess their AML protocols to better match the requirements of the CTA. Listen as our authoritative panel discusses the CTA, the new federal reporting requirements it imposes on borrowers, and the added due diligence issues it presents for lenders.

Real Estate Mezzanine Financing: Structuring and Documentation, Due Diligence, Key Provisions

Mezzanine financing allows borrowers to obtain financing in addition to a mortgage loan, but mezzanine loans add complexity, with additional documents, legal opinions, and third-party reports. Mezzanine lenders require separate consent rights for various actions by the borrower, and restructuring a nonperforming loan is especially problematic given the diverging interests of the mezzanine and mortgage lenders. Since the mezzanine lender's security interest is in the borrowing entity rather than the property, it must conduct entity-level diligence, including analyzing potential claims and agreements entered into by the property owner. Existing contracts and licenses might contain restrictions on transfer--the pledge securing the mezzanine loan or any foreclosure of the pledge could violate such limits. The mezzanine loan agreement should track the mortgage loan agreement, with mortgage loan representations recast to refer to the mezzanine borrower and the mortgage borrower. The mezzanine borrower and the mortgage borrower should be required to comply with entity-level covenants and property-related covenants. The mezzanine borrower's obligations are secured by a UCC pledge of equity interests in the property owner. The pledge can be perfected under Article 8 of the UCC. The mezzanine borrower's ownership interest in the mortgage borrower must be certificated so the mezzanine lender can take physical possession of the membership certificates. The operating agreement should also include Article 8 opting-in language. Listen as our authoritative panel discusses the nuances of mezzanine financing.
