For secured creditors, a federal receivership can offer the quickest and most cost-effective method of gaining control over a borrower’s collateral upon default. A federal receivership maintains the value of the collateral by allowing the business to continue to operate. For the property owners, having a receiver in place can often help mitigate the fears of lenders that their collateral property is being adequately maintained and professionally managed.
As a receiver we will preserve and protect the collateral as well as the financial integrity of the business as a going concern. In addition, we may be able to stabilize the operations to mitigate further potential losses. This takes a particular expertise in working with property owners, creditors, and the court to act as a receiver on real estate; effectively a court appointed property manager.
We are also experienced in court ordered real estate auctions in and outside of bankruptcy court. We understand the complexity of dealing with the property owner, potential buyer, lender & the bankruptcy court.

This relationship ultimately creates a structure to mitigate potential conflicts and fully integrate the project into the fabric of the community.

One of the most critical activities to achieve successful real estate development involves thorough due diligence. This process can identify critical issues early in the transaction/development review. It requires an objective and dispassionate evaluation including:

- Determining utility service options and connection fees
- Highest and Best Use analysis to establish options for profitable development
- Monitoring of market conditions and potential for development by assessing all required approvals
The financial commitment of a real estate transaction or project may involve the participation of investors and lenders to achieve a successful outcome. Continuous monitoring and evaluation of budgets is critical to achieving the expected financial outcome by:
- Negotiating terms and coordinating agreements with equity/joint-venture partners
- Soliciting and evaluating commercial financing proposals
- Coordinating loan term negotiations with primary/mezzanine/equity lenders
- Providing budget and operating performance progress reports to lenders and partners
