Business Sales and Lease Assignments: Tips for Sellers - By Christopher J. DeSimone

Latest Article from the GRDD Law Newsletter: #BusinessSales; #LeaseAssignments; #TipsforSellers

THE OBSCURE COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE BROKER'S LIEN ACT

Many commercial real estate brokers and commercial property owners are unaware of a provision in the Virginia Code that allows a broker to record a lien for unpaid leasing commissions against the owner’s property. The Commercial Real Estate Broker’s Lien Act (the “Act”), which is codified as Virginia Code §55-526 and -527, can be a tremendous tool for brokers, and a tremendous headache for property owners.

In order to record the lien, the broker must have a written agreement signed by the owner for the payment of a leasing commission. This requirement applies to both the landlord’s broker and to the tenant’s broker. The lien is perfected by recording a memorandum of the lien in the clerk’s office of the circuit court of the county/city where the commercial real estate is located. The Act contains strict requirements as to what information must be included in the memorandum, and failure to strictly comply with the requirements can result in the filing of an invalid lien. Furthermore, the Act does not apply to residential properties.

Unlike some other liens in Virginia, the broker’s lien is not automatically created upon the occurrence of the transaction that gives rise to the lien (i.e. the ex*****on of the lease). It only exists if the broker actually records the lien memorandum. In addition, unlike certain other liens in Virginia (e.g. mechanic’s liens), the lien does not expire if the broker fails to file a lawsuit to enforce the lien within a stated period of time. As such, the lien can remain a cloud on the owner’s title for an extensive period of time, without the requirement that the broker file suit for breach of the lease commission agreement. The broker must release the lien when the commission is settled/paid. If the owner denies that the commission is owed, the owner can petition the Circuit Court to remove the lien (thereby opening the door for potentially expensive litigation).

Interestingly, the existing four paragraph Act is quite brief and does not provide any parameters to control the process of enforcing the lien. Effective October 1, 2019, the Act will be repealed and replaced with Virginia Code §55.1-1101, but the new statute contains mostly minor grammatical alterations. As such, and continuing indefinitely into the future, the ability to record a lien remains an effective tool for brokers that are not paid leasing commissions. Property owners should be aware of this tool, and should take careful measures to enter into lease commission agreements that are exceedingly clear with respect to (a) when and how leasing commissions will be paid, and (b) how leasing commissions will be calculated.

GRDD Law wishes to thank renowned real estate broker/negotiator, Pauline Thompson, for inspiring this Article.

[10/11/17]   Why was a $2.35M judgment overturned for failure by a foreign LLC to register in Virginia?

The Virginia Supreme Court in the case of World Telecom Exchange Comm. LLC v. Sidya (VLW 017- 6-056) found that the lower court erred by allowing the plaintiff to litigate a claim without first obtaining an SCC certificate as required by Va. Code § 13.1-1057(A). In doing so, it reversed one of the largest Virginia verdicts of 2015.

Va. Code § 13.1-1057(A) states that a foreign limited liability company (LLC) “transacting business in the Commonwealth may not maintain any action, suit, or proceeding in any court of the Commonwealth until it has registered in the Commonwealth.” See our November 2016 newsletter in which we discuss registering your Virginia entity in other states where it transacts business.

One of the plaintiffs was a private foreign company organized in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. The record shows that it was aware of the failure to register but, nevertheless, failed to cure the registration issue before the trial concluded. The company argued that it did not transact business in Virginia, and that only its wholly-owned subsidiary (also a plaintiff in the litigation) transacted business in Virginia. The court rejected this defense, opining that a parent company transacts business in the Commonwealth if its wholly-owned subsidiary transacts business in the Commonwealth. The defendant’s lawyer argued at trial that the Dubai company did not want to register in order to avoid paying taxes to Virginia. The company did obtain the certificate during the appeal process, but the Supreme Court held that a proper certificate was necessary before the final judgment was entered.

The Supreme Court remanded the case with instructions for the Fairfax County Circuit Court to enter a final judgment dismissing the foreign company’s claims against the defendant.

The ruling in this case illustrates just one reason why it is important for foreign companies transacting business in Virginia to obtain a certificate of authority before doing business in Virginia.
