Guarantees in Real Estate Transactions


Guarantees undergird most real estate transactions. Lenders, investors and others are often unwilling or unable to finance or otherwise support a real estate transaction without certain substantial guarantees. These guarantees may concern repayment of loan proceeds or performance of other services – construction, maintenance and waste prevention, environmental indemnity, etc.

The scope of guarantees is highly negotiated, particularly whether the guarantee is recourse or non-recourse and the scope of carve-outs from the guarantees.

This program provides a practical guide to negotiating and drafting guarantees in real estate transactions.

  • Types of guarantees – payment, performance, collection, completion
  • Essential elements of a guarantee – consideration, scope, carve-outs, waivers
  • Guarantees for property maintenance/no waste, environmental indemnity and other non-financial concerns
  • Carve-outs – full v. partial, fraud, misappropriation, misapplication, failure to maintain, insurance and more
  • Guarantees of construction loans
