Options in commercial real estate transactions give the optioner (the party buying the option) more time – more time to do due diligence, obtain financing and any necessary governmental approvals, and consider whether the transaction is truly viable. The optionee (the party whose property is subject to the option) loses the right to sell the property to a third party for the duration of the option but earns a fee for doing so.

Options in commercial real estate transactions give the optioner (the party buying the option) more time – more time to do due diligence, obtain financing and any necessary governmental approvals, and consider whether the transaction is truly viable.  The optionee (the party whose property is subject to the option) loses the right to sell the property to a third party for the duration of the option but earns a fee for doing so.  In a world of complex and risky commercial real estate transactions, where time is often of the essence and risk is high, options allow developers, investors and others an effective mechanism to buy time and take a wait-and-see-approach.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to drafting essential provisions of options in commercial real estate transactions, including avoiding costly traps. 

  • Types of option contracts in real estate transactions
  • Economics of real estate option contracts, including the purchase price of the underlying property and market volatility
  • Key terms – duration of exclusive period, fees, and extensions – and relationship to market conditions
  • Nature of exclusive period – access to property, restrictions on marketing, cooperation in obtaining permits
  • Role of contingencies – financing, regulatory, market variables
  • Differences between rights of first refusal and options
