The Committee on Real Estate Financing focuses on every aspect of finance in commercial and residential real estate transactions. Beyond state-of-the-art loan documents (which are available to Committee members), loan structures and market trends, the Committee deals with remedies and enforcement.

Looking at the “last day first” of commercial and residential financing, the Committee assembles and makes available to its members insights gleaned from the latest industry trends, transactions, regulations, cases and thought leaders. In furtherance of these objectives, the Committee holds regular CLE programs (for CLE credit), evaluates and comments on proposed legislation, reports on new rules and regulations in the banking sector, considers model national and local proposed legislation, and studies and reports on the latest cases in loan and guaranty enforcement.

The Committee forms task forces to analyze important new decisions, timely issues and trends in New York and nationally; and weighs in on the hottest and most important topics of the day — such as “bad boy” guaranty enforcement, intercreditor agreements, lien priority, lender liability, mezzanine loan structures, model receivership statutes, and zombie homes.

For a bird’s eye view of all things finance — and for spirited collaboration among both the most accomplished financing lawyers in the State and those first starting their careers — this is the place to be. Join this committee to learn, grow and contribute.

Committee membership is open to members of the Real Property Law Section.
