Matthew Dolan counsels national banks, mortgage lenders, and developers in complex-structured real estate finance transactions secured by commercial properties throughout the United States, including multi-family and student housing, manufactured housing communities, shopping and corporate centers, industrial parks, and homeless shelters. He is a member of the firm’s Real Estate + Development Group.
Matt has extensive nationwide experience handling loans secured by heavily-regulated multi-family affordable housing projects financed through government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) programs with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Federal HOME Loan Banks, commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) and balance-sheet loans, the State and City of New York, and other federal, state, and municipal regulatory, housing, and community development programs and agencies.
Matt helps his clients navigate the complexities of, and mitigate the risks inherent in, financing and developing multi-family properties subject to tenant occupancy and rent restrictions; federal, state, and local regulatory-agency compliance standards regarding project management; property cash-flow distribution; subordinate financing; borrower organizational structures; and related matters. These transactions typically include components such as: low-income housing tax credits (LIHTCs), tax-exempt bonds, tax exemptions and abatements, payment-in-lieu-of-tax (PILOT) agreements, tax-increment financing agreements, ground lease and lease-leaseback structures, bond credit enhancements, forward loan commitments, loan participations and syndications, and construction and permanent debt and equity investments.
Matt also represents regional lending institutions, corporations, and developers in mortgage loan financings, acquisitions and sales of real property, development of mixed-use projects, and office and industrial leasing throughout the country. He has experience litigating bankruptcy, construction, and real estate matters in state and federal court.
