Our attorneys have extensive experience in negotiating a broad range of real estate sale contracts and closing the transactions. As banking attorneys, we are particularly sensitive to the unique concerns financial institutions face in liquidating their commercial REO properties. We understand the need for prompt, orderly sales as well as protection against post-closing legal issues. We know the importance of “as-is” provisions and waivers of express and implied warranties, and how to implement these provisions through effective drafting. We know the nuances and risks of “standard” contracts and when and how to include important carve-outs to customary provisions. We have facilitated numerous difficult sales by analyzing and resolving complex and unusual title, survey, land use, landlord-tenant, environmental and other issues that threatened to derail the transaction.
