This practice/simulation course will cover a commercial real estate transaction from the beginning stages through the closing (or settlement) stage. Students will be divided into two groups (Seller and Purchaser) and students will review and analyze several aspects of the real estate transaction, such as drafting the Purchase Agreement, reviewing and analyzing related transactional and due diligence documents, such as a title commitment, a financing loan commitment and loan documents, environmental reports and preparing and reviewing closing documents. We will also discuss structuring the appropriate acquisition entity and financing and income tax issues facing both parties. Students will prepare weekly written assignments based on class discussions and readings, culminating in a closing at the end of the semester in lieu of a final examination.
