Real Estate Financing

As a lender, borrower or investor, you must be able to depend on qualified and experienced legal consultants when the time comes to negotiate, structure, document and close a financing or an investment in a timely manner. This is of primary importance for the realization of real estate development projects.

Our real estate financing team possesses solid experience, notably in mortgage financing, acquisition financing, mezzanine financings, development capital financings, construction loans, temporary real estate loans, permanent financing as well as refinancings. Our team also provides valuable support in the case of private investments whether they involve commercial, industrial or retail sales projects, retirement residence construction or any other type of real estate project.

How we help you:

We prepare and negotiate all the documents relating to private or institutional financing, including financing offers, loan contracts, guaranteed or non-guaranteed debentures, mortgage deeds, pledges, surety bonds, debt settlement and subordination agreements, agreements between creditors, assignments of ranking and all other agreements or documents pertaining to covenants.

We assist you in researching covenants and guarantees concerning the real estate.

We proceed with title searches and obtaining any opinions required.

We provide corporate opinions concerning the enforceable character of transactions.

We advise you on the ways to provide and respect the different conditions mentioned as required by the terms of the financing documents.

 

Did you know that…

Only a person or a trust which operates a business can mortgage the entirety of their assets.

A surety can revoke the surety bond, granted for the purpose of covering future or indeterminate debts for an indeterminate length of time, after a period of three years, by giving advance notice, to the extent that the debt is not yet payable.

A debtor or a person against whom a right of redemption is exercised, can address the exercise of this right by paying the creditor the amount due or by remedying the failure or declared defaults at any time before judgement is rendered.
