Mike also advises commercial mortgage lenders on the financing of real estate transactions for existing commercial and mixed-use properties and how best to structure financing packages for construction on undeveloped and underdeveloped land. He further assists his clients in complex title issue resolution, survey matter review, and drafting and reviewing matters including opinions on authority, loan agreements, and guaranties for loans.
In addition to his work with lenders and developers, Mike also drafts and reviews formational documents for both residential and mixed-use condominiums, including the declaration of trust, bylaws, rules and regulations, master deed, subordination documents, and phasing amendments.
