Buyer Due Diligence: Title and Survey Issues
The buying and selling of commercial real estate continues briskly in the Pacific Northwest, even in a pandemic. Although these transactions generally follow a common course from inception to closing, each transaction invariably presents new issues, surprises, and challenges, as well as a new cast of personnel to work with, from clients to consultants to adverse parties to title and escrow officers and others.
Our 26th Annual Conference on Advanced Commercial Real Estate Purchases & Sales will give you an update on the current market, insights on how your colleagues in this profession are addressing the more challenging and complex issues, and templates for some of the more critical purchase and sale documents. The conference is designed to unfold like a transaction itself. We will begin with a discussion of "pre-sale" analysis and process, followed by presentations on ownership structures, due diligence, working with lenders, closing issues, disputes between buyers and sellers, and ethical issues. Presenters will address how the pandemic has affected real estate transactions and how parties are addressing it in their decision-making and their documents. This conference is a must for anyone who wants to understand the broad range of issues presented by commercial real estate purchases and sales.
