Distressed Asset Acquisition - Real Estate Package

Acquiring distressed assets is a complex endeavor due to the different motivations of all parties, the impacts on the physical property, the financial concerns of a possibly insolvent seller, and the need to complete the process on an extremely abbreviated timeline.

When a seller starts to face a liquidity shortfall, they will often forgo routine maintenance. When larger shortfalls begin, they may reduce staff, cut essential vendors, and defer regularly owed payments. Eventually, these late payments will alert the debt lender who can then force a sale.

Depending on the severity of the cash flow issues, these impacts may occur in 2-3 months or may stretch over a period of years. The end result is always the same: a deteriorating building with significant deferred expenses and a lender pushing a sale to protect its interest.

Unlike a normal asset acquisition, in the acquisition of distressed assets, we focus more on unrecorded liens and perform additional due diligence on the landlord and tenant obligations. As a potential distressed asset buyer, you should prepare your team to act quickly and decisively. See below the services we include on the "Distressed Asset package":

  • Entity Formation (LLC)
  • Estoppel certificate
  • Vendors Contracts
  • Coordination
  • Inspections
