There are four questions, but please note that the first and third questions have multiple parts. Please also note the following:
• For question Two, your response should be no more than 2 pages double spaced. The first, third and fourth questions contain multiple parts; responses should be no more than 1-2 pages double spaced for each part
• This is an open book, take-home exam. You should utilize the text and any books assigned during the semester, case law reviewed during the semester, and lecture material. No use of the internet or material outside the class should be consulted or utilized in your response. There should be no consultation or conferring of any kind with each other or with any third party. I will not entertain any inquiries seeking “clarification” of any question or part thereof; if you perceive an ambiguity, note it in your response
1. The United States Constitution is the bedrock of our legal system. One of the key protections afforded to citizens is the 5th Amendment provision that states that property may not be taken for “public use” without just compensation. It is also true that in the last fifty (50) years or so, very few successful real estate developments occurred without the use of eminent domain.
(A) Discuss the pros and cons of the majority holding in the Kelo v. City of New London case. Specifically, do you agree that “economic development” is a “public use” for which the eminent domain tool should be available? Should the rights of the individual (e.g. Susette Kelo) always trump the rights of developers? Or should the greater good—as reflected in economic development—always take priority over the individual, as long as “just compensation” is paid? Give examples of development projects discussed in class that you think demonstrate your point of view; and make specific reference to the majority, concurring and dissenting opinions of the Kelo decision to support your response.
(B) If you were heading up a development project in Brooklyn, and eminent domain was a necessary tool to make the project a reality, how would you evaluate the likelihood that the courts would allow eminent domain to proceed if there were properties in the development site that were not blighted. Assume that your project would bring economic development and more tax revenue to the site you are looking to develop. Make reference to all court decisions discussed in class that support your conclusion.
2. The greatest real estate debacle in U.S. history—the Tishman-Speyer purchase of the apartments at Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village for $5.4 billion—came on the heels of the the subprime mortgage disaster. If you were a loan officer or advisor who underwrites investments in real estate projects, particularly in New York City, what lessons would you draw from this case study of a real estate project gone awry? Reference the Roberts decision in your answer.
3. You are reviewing the possible purchase of an office building in New York City and you expect to close before the end of February, 2023. The building is fully occupied with a single net lease tenant who signed a ten year lease in January, 2013.
(A) What approaches to value would you use to come up with the price to be paid? What information would you review and consider in doing your evaluation? What concerns would you have about reviewing the income/expense statement of the property and any appraisal on the property?
(B) You decide that the property is worth $1 million, and the seller agrees to sell it to you for $1 million. An appraisal on the property also concludes that the property is worth $1 million. The NYC property tax assessment (assessed value) on the building is $1 million. What are the issues you should be considering with respect to the tax assessment as you proceed to a closing and after you acquire the property?
4. The office building in Question 3 above is next door to an abandoned chemical
manufacturing plant. You see a sign on the fence surrounding the plant that says
(A) As a prospective purchaser, what due diligence steps would you seek to take to
assure yourself that the property you were attempting to purchase was not impacted by
the contamination on the adjacent property?
(B) As the seller of the office building, what concerns do you have about the
environmental due diligence to be performed by the prospective purchaser, and what
steps would you take to try to protect your interests?

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
