Our Firm has extensive experience with single and multi-family residential and condominium development projects. We have closed several HUD-backed loans for the construction and development of multi-family projects. We have also represented clients in connection with hotel and assisted living projects.

While similar to commercial transactions in many ways, residential developments also introduce different issues that must be successfully addressed. One of the most important legal documents for a single family development is the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions, Easements, and Restrictions. We have drafted many so called “CC&R” documents and are very familiar with the process of setting up not-for-profit property owners’ associations for neighborhood governance purposes. Multi-family projects often involve careful coordination with government officials. At our Firm, we are not daunted by the bureaucratic process. We aggressively pursue the approvals our clients need in order to keep a project on schedule.
