Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the July 19th premiere of a new webinar, Representing the Commercial Tenant, which looks at how the tenant - generally the underdog in lease transactions - can turn the tables and become the most powerful player in the leasing game.

Commercial real estate is one of the most understandable of investments. We live and work within real estate. It is tangible. One can see it.

Yet, underneath this veneer of simplicity there are many legal and practical issues to consider. And these issues are impacted by the market and the leverage of the parties, both of which are moving targets.

This Financial Poise REAL ESTATE LAW DUMBED DOWN 2018 webinar series is for the lawyer, broker, investor, syndicator, developer and others who seek a basic understanding of the essential elements of real estate law. This series spans purchase through sale and cover all of the high points in between.

Purchasing real estate presents a number of threshold questions. Should a real estate investor use his or her own money, or seek investors? What type of investment legal structure makes the most sense and why? When one is in the process of acquiring a property, what are the most important items to inspect? What if the buyer finds a big problem? When one wishes to sell a real estate investment, how much is the right price? What is the value and how is it determined?

At its base, commercial real estate is all about cash flow. What makes this possible is the commercial lease. Yet a lease creates a long-term relationship between a landlord and a tenant who have diametrically opposing goals. How does one navigate through the minefield of legal issues in a lease and end up with a contract that both sides can live with for years to come?

The second episode of the series, Representing the Commercial Tenant, airs on July 19th at 2:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Harold Bordwin of Keen-Summit Capital Partners LLC. He is joined by Andrew Abrams of Boodell & Domanskis, Stacey Birndorf of Transwestern, and Howard Kline of The Law Office of Howard F. Kline to discuss empowering the commercial tenant in lease transactions.

A commercial tenant views a lease negotiation quite differently than does the landlord. As most leases tend to be drafted by the landlord, a tenant must begin an uphill battle to gain as many concessions as possible. This is an arduous task made easier by a full understanding of what are the most important issues for a tenant in a commercial lease transaction.

How does the financial profile of the tenant enter into the picture? Where can a tenant get hurt the most by hidden costs or unforeseen expenses? Why is “leverage” the most important concept to consider in this process? This webinar will help one understand how the tenant, generally the underdog in lease transactions, can turn the tables and become the most powerful player in the leasing game.
