We’ve now passed the first month end since the world was turned upside down by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and for many involved in the real estate market it was a bad April Fool’s joke.
April 1st came too quickly for many people who are still trying to determine what the impact of the market upset, brought on by the global pandemic, will mean to their businesses, livelihood and future plans. However, those looking at ongoing real estate closings are well advised to be pro-active in considering what implications the current situation may have, as some parties may be struggling (or unwilling) to complete for a variety of reasons.
Below, we consider some of the novel issues confronting vendors and purchasers in this brave new world.
Vacant Possession Conditions:
Contract Frustration and “Force Majeure;”
Statements of Adjustments:
The above are just a few of the new issues confronting practitioners and participants in the real estate industry. They are far from the only ones. Even on the most basic level, new rules around social distancing and mandatory quarantines will need to be navigated to comply with verification requirements for execution of contracts. Guidelines and temporary solutions have been approved by regulatory bodies to ensure that transactions can continue to be completed and registered. Forethought, a steady hand and a willingness to seek out and apply novel solutions, bringing purchasers and vendors together will be necessary to navigate these new circumstances.
For assistance with property and lending transactions, contact Mark S. Thompson and Dalene Visser. For assistance with a dispute over a closing, contact Claire Immega and Matthew Milne.
