Commercial Covenants: Drafting Considerations


Commercial Covenants: Drafting Considerations, Annual Advanced Real Estate Drafting Course, presented by Bob Burton

Over the past twenty (20) years, private covenant control of mixed-use projects has increased in popularity and complexity. Developers often seek to maximize land area and value by designing projects with multiple uses with some or all of the use components intended for separate ownership. The spatial interrelation of uses, and the developer’s desire to establish a theme or specific character for the project, often translates into the need for a common building architecture, shared project amenities, e.g., roads, recreational areas, common way finding and signage, and a single authority to ensure that the theme, character, and amenities are preserved and maintained.  Continue Reading

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
