FORUM’S LAND CAPITAL PROCESS
A Completely Flexible Approach to MeetYour Needs & Requirements
Here are a few of the basic structures that may work:
Pre-Site Control Collaboration
Work with Forum prior to gaining site control to allow Forum to become the eventual “buyer” in the transaction. By using a 3 party agreement, the Developer can make option payments to the current landowner, securing an opportunity for Forum to acquire ownership of the land at Financial Close or NTP while simultaneously negotiating a long-term ground lease with your company.
Development Stage Collaboration
Work with Forum to modify the Purchase Agreement to insert Forum as the “buyer” when the transaction closes at Financial Close or NTP while simultaneously negotiating an improved long-term ground lease.
Post NTP/Financial Close Collaboration
- If the Land continues to be owned by a 3rd party (original land owner) under an existing long-term ground lease, we can make an attractive offer to the land owner to buy their land while offering improved lease terms for your company.
- If the Land is owned by the project-owner, and there are not tax equity or debt restrictions, we can buy the land for an upfront cash payment in exchange for a long-term ground lease.
