Seattle REIA - The Legal Side of Commercial & Multi-Family Due Diligence
The legal side, as well as physical and financial sides, of Due Diligence can serve to mitigate 'surprises' and misrepresentations in any type of property purchase and can save real dollars off the purchase price as those 'surprises' are uncovered. Surprises, often with a bit of omission and misrepresentation, are more common than not in commercial and multi-family due diligence, potentially causing higher purchase prices and lower profits when they are overlooked. Properties and jurisdictions vary but we'll cover the most common (and likely a few not so common) items that should be high on your list! Bring your questions! About Our Speaker Chris Casey is a fellow REIA Member, investor and principal of Casey Law, PLLC. The focuses of Casey Law, PLLC are personal and business liability protection, business formation, purchase and sale and other contract documentation, commercial building and multi-family residential housing owners. His prior years of experience as a construction defect defense attorney, his record in the courtroom as a criminal prosecutor and civil trial attorney, as well as his commitment to developing long-term relationships with each client are what distinguishes Chris. Mr. Casey started his career, while still a law student, in Oregon as a trial attorney with the District Attorney’s Office. At the D.A.’s Office, he worked with the Drug Enforcement Trial Unit, and successfully litigated dozens of felony bench and jury trials. Mr. Casey left the D.A. with an undefeated trial record.
