The New York City Commercial Real Estate Financing law firm of Barry R. Gogel, specializes in several available commercial real property financing methods, including Mezzanine Financing, Mortgage Pools, Purchase Money Mortgages, and Underlying Mortgage Financing.


The Gogel Law firm has extensive experience in mezzanine financing, which is a hybrid of debt and equity financing most often used to finance the expansion of existing commercial real estate properties. Mezzanine financing is basically debt capital that gives the lender the rights to convert to an ownership or equity interest in the commercial real estate property if the loan is not paid back in time and in full, or in which there is otherwise a default by the borrower.  Mezzanine financing is most often subordinated to the debt owed to senior financing.

Often, mezzanine financing for commercial real property, is usually provided to the borrower quickly with a small amount of due diligence on the part of the lender and a small amount of, or in some cases, no collateral on the part of the borrower.  In view of this, the financing cost are usually higher than other real property financing methods.


The Gogel Law firm has extensive expertise with respect to purchase money mortgages, which is a mortgage issued to the borrower by the seller of the commercial real estate, as part of the real estate purchase transaction.  This is commonly referred to as as seller or owner financing.

Our law firm has experience representing both buyers and sellers in purchase-money mortgage real estate transactions which are often offered by the seller as an incentive to purchase a commercial real estate property.  It also can be used in situations where the buyer is assuming the seller’s real property mortgage, where the difference between the balance on the assumed mortgage and the sales price of the real property is made up with seller financing.  If your buyer or seller, call the Law office of Barry R Gogel today to negotiate and implement your commercial real estate purchase money mortgage agreement.


The law firm of Barry R. Gogel are experts in negotiating and implementing underlying mortgages which are known as a  commercial loan on a piece of real estate, which is owned by a cooperative housing corporation. In commercial real estate situations such as those relating to condominiums and co-op buildings with multiple units, the underlying mortgage, on the building itself, is most often the only mortgage.  The underlying mortgage loan takes precedence over all other types of real property liens and depending on the number of shares relating to the whole building, the underlying mortgage is shared proportionately by residents of the condominium or co-op building.  If your co-op or condominium is seeking to obtain an underlying mortgage loan, contact our dedicated underlying mortgage loan financing law office, and we will be glad to help.
