- As available credit tightens and asset values decline, it will become increasingly difficult for borrowers to keep debt service payments current and repay existing indebtedness at maturity, whether via refinancing of that indebtedness or selling the underlying real property asset. As these borrowers default on their loan obligations, what happens? This article presents a brief review of some of the factors that lenders consider following a loan default., Contributing Author, “After a Default — Working the Alternatives”, ABA Section of Business Law, Practical Resources for the Business Lawyer
- Single-purpose entities (SPEs), also referred to interchangeably as single-asset entities or special-purpose entities, are much maligned modern real estate transactions. In financing, lenders require SPEs, seeming to hold out the presence of an SPE as a talisrnan that will ward off all future evil, while borrowers complain about the upfront and long-term costs of complying with the lender's requirements. In a purchase and sale agreement, a buyer struggles to obtain representations and warranties that survive the closing, and then must face the added challenge of negotiating for recourse to an entity that will not have any assets once the property is sold and the cash distributed. Yet, that same buyer, wearing the hat of the landlord in a lease, willingly accepts the benefits of holding title to a building in an SPE while seeking guaranties from would-be tenants who fail to bring the proverbial 'deep pocket' to the table. But all of them - landlord, tenant and lender alike - will welcome the protections of SPE ownership when a 'slip and fall' plaintiff commences litigation against anyone and everyone imaginable.
The reputation of the SPE was not helped by the association of SPEs with many of the abuses attributed to certain transaction structures now eternally linked to Enron. Yet, Enron and its advisors did not invent the SPE; SPEs have long played myriad roles in real estate transactions in the USA. This paper aims to provide a brief overview of some primary advantages and disadvantages of using SPEs in US real estate transactions.
