Structuring CC&Rs for Mixed-Use Projects: Drafting, Analyzing, Interpreting, and Amending CC&R Declarations

03.21.2024 | 1:00-2:30 PM EDT

This CLE course will provide real estate practitioners guidance for drafting effective covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs) for mixed-use projects, avoiding common pitfalls in drafting CC&Rs, and amending existing CC&Rs.


Properly drafted easements, covenants, and restrictions in mixed-use projects are crucial. CC&Rs create complex contractual rights and obligations--and property rights and obligations that impact the owners' ability to use, finance, and sell the property.

A significant component of CC&Rs is creating easements that impact daily business operations and other users of the property subject to the document. Common easements address key business issues such as access, construction, shared parking, signage, and maintenance.

Counsel must avoid pitfalls and conflicts to minimize owner disputes and operational problems when drafting or amending CC&Rs. Using boilerplate language is ineffective at best and risky in dealing with a developer's or business owner's specific needs and demands.
