Boyd & Jenerette’s real estate and transactional attorneys have significant experience in all aspects of the “art of the deal”. In the current, more-challenging real estate environment, our real estate law team works extensively with attorneys in our litigation, bankruptcy and corporate teams to better assist clients in acquiring “loans to own”, finding economical solutions to the complexities of acquiring distressed properties, negotiating with loan servicers, and addressing the most advantageous tax strategies in owning and operating real property.
Our attorneys have represented clients across the gamut of real estate transactions, ranging from acquisition of property, both land and improved, and through financing, zoning, development, construction, leasing, management, preparation of parcel and condominium documentation, hotel franchise agreements, loan restructuring and workouts, and the sale of property. Projects have included single-family, cluster and condominium residential development, apartment projects, nursing homes and senior living, hotel and hospitality projects (including condominium-hotel, fractional and timeshare forms of ownership); office and retail development. Services in these transactions have included preparation and negotiation of purchase and sale agreements; property due diligence and analysis; title review and insurance; analysis of local, state and federal tax impacts; analysis of zoning impacts and required rezoning, variances and other procedural requirements; obtaining of necessary licenses (such as alcoholic beverage licenses); negotiation of loan documents for acquisition and construction; negotiation of brokerage, management, development and construction contracts; preparation of lease and management agreements; preparation and filing as necessary of homeowner association, condominium, condominium-hotel and fractional ownership documents; negotiation of hotel franchise, management and operational documents; and structuring of the business investment vehicle.
Our clients include real estate developers and owners, REITs, investors, lenders, capital sources, property managers, insurance companies, and contractors. Some of our lawyers are licensed in foreign jurisdictions and have excellent foreign language skills. This enables our real estate law team to provide services to foreign investors, buyers and developers, including many from the Caribbean, Central and South America and Eastern Europe.
