Ground Leasing

Negotiating and preparing ground leases are skills separate and apart from those used for any other kind of leases. Commonly long term arrangements, the economic interests of the parties are much more complex. Tenants frequently construct real property improvements themselves and almost always have a much bigger financial interest in the property than when leasing part of a large property. The ability to finance the owner’s land and the tenant’s leasehold interest at the same time is a common requirement. Each party to a ground lease has a significant interest in the property. It takes experience to get to a workable ground lease, one that may be around for a hundred years or more. We’ve done these leases for landlords and tenants; for free-standing stores and banks as well as for major structures. Take advantage of our successes and experience to Get Your Deal Done right.
