As investors continue to migrate from the stock market to the real estate market, the need for sound financial analysis of income producing properties is greater than ever. Just as buying high-flying stocks with no regard to intrinsic values resulted in hundreds of thousands of investors losing their life savings, so will buying real estate with reckless disregard to property values result in a similar outcome. While an abundance of books has been written on how to buy and sell houses, the market is virtually devoid of any works that specifically address the topic of the principles of valuation as they apply to real estate.

Homeowner Documents for Developers and Project Owners: Financial, Governance, Control, and Liability Provisions

From single-family homes to condominiums and townhouses, project developments by necessity require lengthy and complicated homeowners association (HOA) documents. For developers and project owners, these founding agreements are critical for the success and profitability of these projects. Tailored and well-drafted HOA documents govern specific property uses, define the services the HOA will provide, and address how property owners will jointly govern the association. HOA documents are also rife with points of potential dispute--from fees to management and control issues. Careful planning and drafting of these documents are essential to successfully exiting the project and avoiding later liability. HOA documents can address pandemic issues and perhaps the relaxation of some restrictions to address unforeseen hardships such as deferrals of assessments due to COVID-related layoffs. HOA litigation often results from poorly drafted HOA agreements, insufficient due diligence, or an incomplete negotiation that failed to consider all pre-and post-transition contingencies. Counsel for developers and project owners can drastically reduce the risk of client exposure and costly litigation by taking the time to ensure the initial document is unambiguous and complete. Our panel will guide counsel to developers and project owners in structuring and drafting the essential financial, governance, control, and liability provisions of HOA agreements. The panel will provide practical insights into strategies for preserving value for property owners while ensuring that developers can successfully exit the project and avoid subsequent liabilities. Listen as our experienced panel of real estate attorneys provides practical guidance on structuring and drafting the essential financial, governance, control, and liability provisions of HOA agreements. The panel will offer insights and strategies for preserving property values while ensuring developers can smoothly exit the project, avoid ongoing liabilities, and maximize project profitability.

E-Signatures and Electronic Documentation in Real Estate Finance: ESIGN and UETA, Interplay With UCC

ENotes and other electronic loan documentation are now routine in residential mortgage lending and have gained more acceptance in commercial real estate lending. The industry is gradually moving toward the digital transformation of the mortgage lifecycle: application, closing, documentation, notarization, recording, and securitization. ESIGN and UETA establish the legality of electronic records and signatures. MERS provides a platform for filing and tracking transfers of "control" of real estate notes from one party to another. However, electronic documents must comply with the UCC and recording statutes (which might require a paper original of the mortgage) and other applicable state laws. If litigation ensues surrounding electronic loan documents, counsel must understand and address enforceability, authentication, and admissibility issues of electronic communications and e-signatures. Listen as our authoritative panel discusses the use of eNotes and electronic loan documentation in commercial and residential mortgage lending. The program will also examine legal and practical issues regarding transferability, UCC perfection, the authentication of electronic signatures, and the admissibility of electronic communications and e-signatures in litigation.
