The Commercial Development, Ownership, and Finance Committee is a new committee organized to focus on issues important to real estate developers and mortgage loan borrowers that do not fall within the purview of any other Real Property Law Section committee. The Committee strives to tackle the practical issues affecting developers where attorneys can provide value to their clients. The Committee addresses topics such as choice of entity, financing, due diligence, purchase agreement, title, economic incentive and distressed real estate issues relative to developers and borrowers.

The Committee will meet at least twice per year, and will host guest speakers to address issues important to attorneys in advising their developer clients. We encourage members to submit topics of interest for discussion at our meetings. The Committee will also be responsible for contributing to the Michigan Real Property Review, and for presenting seminars and speaking at attorney gatherings relative to developer/borrower issues. When appropriate, the Committee may also hold joint meetings or engage in joint projects with other committees.

The Committee provides an opportunity for Section members to network and remain informed about both legal and practical issues impacting the real estate development community. Any interested Section member is welcome to join the Committee.
