Commercial Lending FAQs

What Factors Affect Due Diligence Analysis In Commercial Purchases?

These factors include whether the property is the primary loan collateral, the state where the borrower is organized, the type of loan and whether the lender intends to sell the loan in the secondary mortgage market.

When Is An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Needed?

The National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 requires an EIS when a potential action could end up “significantly affecting the quality of the human environment.” Developing or rezoning a piece of real estate likely qualifies. The resulting EIS informs the public about the possible impact the project can have, but a report that suggests a negative impact on the natural or built environment does not automatically mean that the relevant government agency will reject the project.

What Goes Into An Offering Plan?

An offering plan provides information to a prospective buyer of a unit in a condominium or co-op. There are two sections: the narrative and exhibits. The offering plan’s narrative explains the unit’s features and procedures for buying it, as well as discloses any issues with construction if the building is not yet complete. The exhibit can include a floor plan and other details of the unit’s physical makeup, plus the association’s bylaws.
