This CLE course will provide real estate practitioners guidance for drafting valid covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs) for mixed-use projects, avoiding common pitfalls in drafting CC&Rs, and amending existing CC&Rs.

Description

The importance of drafting CC&Rs in mixed-use projects cannot be overstated. CC&Rs create complex contractual rights and obligations and property rights and obligations that impact the owners' ability to use, sell, and finance the property.

A significant component of CC&Rs is creating easements that impact daily business operations and other users of the property subject to the document. Properly drafted easements will address critical business issues such as access, construction, shared parking, signage, and maintenance.

Counsel must avoid pitfalls and conflicts to minimize owner disputes and operational problems when drafting or amending CC&Rs. Using boilerplate language is ineffective at best and, at worst, is a risky means of dealing with the specific needs and demands of a developer or business owner.

Listen as our authoritative panel provides practitioners with a clear understanding of how to draft effective CC&Rs for mixed-use projects, avoid common pitfalls, and amend existing documents.
