In the Midwest, around this time of the year, many apartment owners face the risk of bad weather that can destroy your asset. Darwin German’s 161 unit apartment building was recently hit by a tornado. It destroyed the roof on two buildings and affected 14 units. Fortunately no tenants were killed or hurt. We discuss what he did when he originally got the call that the tornado hit and now his plans on the rehab.
In the second part of the interview, Darwin explains language in his bank loan documents. Darwin refinanced a large apartment building with bank financing. The language in your loan documents is important. When you borrow money, the lender will have language and covenants that will always be slanted protecting the lender in case of default. Darwin goes through his bank loan documents and highlights some of the language that he and his attorney pushed back on with the lender. Having a seasoned “contracts” attorney to represent you in negotiations with the lender will help in your success.
