Product Description

Don’t let a defective ground lease destroy the value of your investment or collateral! All too often, developers, lenders and investors learn the hard way that overlooking a single, seemingly innocuous, clause can end up wasting massive amounts of money in construction costs, development expenses, principal and interest.

Ground Leases and Land Acquisition Contracts analyzes ground lease clauses in depth. The book examines the hidden risks of restrictive use clauses, rent increase provisions, clauses preventing assignability, and other language that can materially impair a project’s market value and even result in disastrous losses. It also explains how to structure and draft these vital agreements from scratch. You’ll learn how to choose between a subordinated lease, an unsubordinated lease and a land acquisition contract. You’ll also learn how to negotiate lease and contract provisions that suit your needs and how to deal with the underlying business problems raised by all parties. Annotated sample forms will help you understand the origins of and reasoning behind each provision.

Whether you are making a strategic investment or lending decision or negotiating and drafting a lease, you will find the crucial guidance you need in this text.
