  • What terms should be in the lease to protect the landlord/tenant?
  • What actions can and should be taken by the tenant prior to and after filing?
  • What actions can and should be taken by the landlord prior to and after tenant's filing?

Part 2:

Special Lease Situations: Build-to-Suit Leases and Sale-Leasebacks

Loretta KellyEquus Capital Partners, LTD., Philadelphia, PA

Brian Crist, Ice Miller, Indianapolis, IN


The program will provide an overview of certain key legal considerations for two types of specialized lease transactions: sale-leasebacks and build-to-suit leases. We will examine the accounting and tax treatment of sale-leaseback transactions, including whether they might be characterized as financing transactions, rather than a true lease. We also will provide practical suggestions for negotiating key terms to protect both landlords and tenants in sale-leasebacks. In addition, we will review the various complex issues that face a landlord and tenant in a build-to-suit transaction, from the project planning phase through financing, construction and completion. The program will examine a number of the practical considerations unique to a build-to-suit transaction that should be addressed by the parties in negotiating the lease.
