Negotiating Favorable Loan Terms

When you need financing for the purchase of commercial property, the process of obtaining the money can be challenging. Our attorneys are adept at reviewing loan proposals and documents, as well as negotiating terms and provisions designed to address your needs and concerns. We will ensure that you understand all of the details, including non-recourse clauses and "bad-boy" provisions that could potentially affect your personal liability. It is also crucial for you to be aware of your rights in a default situation, and we will provide the guidance you need along the way.

Client-Centered Financing Solutions

At Sosin, Arnold & Schoenbeck Ltd., our experienced attorneys handle a wide variety of financing agreements and situations, including:

  • Acquisition and development loans: A&D loans are commonly used to buy property and improve or develop the property. They frequently require consideration of zoning and land-use issues, easements, and government incentive programs, and are commonly used by real estate developers to fund new and ongoing projects;
  • Construction loans: Construction loans are similar to A&D loans, except that the land itself is not part the transaction in question. Obtaining a construction loan requires a careful analysis of the anticipated success of the commercial property and adherence to a strict timeline.
  • Mezzanine loans or bridge loans: Mezzanine loans and bridge loans are both short-term loans that serve somewhat different purposes. A bridge loan is commonly used to span the gap between selling a property and purchasing another, while a mezzanine loan is often utilized for additional financing for a project that has already been started. Mezzanine and bridge loans require substantial documentation and skilled legal counsel. Mezzanine loans are particularly complex, as the owner may be required to offer part of his or her company as collateral.
