CarneyKelehan real estate attorneys have experience in several sub-specialties of real estate financing including acquisition, construction, and permanent loans. A significant portion of our real estate practice includes representing owners, contractors and lenders in the development, financing, operation and management of projects insured by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as well as representing owners in the transfer of physical assets (i.e. the sale) of HUD-insured projects. CarneyKelehan also represents several Fannie Mae Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS) Lenders and Freddie Mac Lenders in loan transactions under the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac product lines as well as owners seeking to utilize said product lines.
The law firm is heavily involved in conventional- and government-insured commercial and mixed-use real estate projects and residential real estate finance. While the firm has a large client base of local and regional lender and developers, many of CarneyKelehan represents local and regional lenders and developers as well as nationally based clients including institutional investors, mortgage and investment bankers, national banks, municipal bond insurers, developers and contractors, health care facility sponsors, public authorities, syndicators, trade associations, nonprofit corporations and housing condominiums and cooperatives.
CarneyKelehan works with many of its developer clients in the purchase, sale and subdivision of single family and commercial land parcels as well as in the drafting of relevant homeowners' association documents and condominium documents (both residential and commercial).
Given its position as the largest locally-based law firm in Howard County, Md., the firm serves as local counsel to many national firms, and its national housing and development client base extends throughout the country.
