Structuring Local Counsel Opinions in Real Estate Finance Transactions

Straffordpub

Commercial real estate loan transactions are usually conditioned upon opinions of counsel. Lenders will often require lead counsel and local counsel opinions when, for example, the lead counsel is licensed to practice in a state different from the property that will be subject to the mortgage loan. Opinion givers must each understand their role in the transaction and the areas for which they are responsible.

Structuring Preferred Equity Investments in Real Estate Ventures: True Equity vs. "Debt-Like" Equity

strafford

PEIs, together with mortgage loans and mezzanine loans, are often a critical part of the capital structure used by sponsors to fund real estate ventures. The terms of PEIs can vary considerably. On one end of the spectrum are PEIs that are economically and functionally equivalent to a mezzanine loan, though structured as equity and not debt. On the other end of the spectrum are PEIs that are pari passu with the sponsor’s equity. In any context, a PEI’s equity is subordinate to all of the real estate venture’s debts.PEIs typically earn a higher rate of return on the investment than debt financing, and may earn a share of cash flow beyond a stated rate of return and of any capital appreciation.
