An SNDA agreement is a contract wherein the main purpose is to clarify the relationship between the lender and tenant. As the very name indicates, it is the the subordination, non-disturbance, and adornments and is meant to address the rights between tenants and the landlords or investors. It has basically three major components, which include the followings:
Subordination means that the tenant agrees that its lease is subordinate to the lien of the mortgage. This is the case especially if the lease occurs after the mortgage. These kinds of agreements are often requested by a new lender to make all of the leases for the building, which is collateral to its loan, become subordinate to its mortgage. 2-Non-disturbance specifies that the lender will not disturb tenant’s possession and honor the terms of lease, if he/she forecloses and takes title to the building. 3-Attornment means the fact that if the lender forecloses and takes title to the building, it will make the lender as its new owner.
Talking about estoppels agreement, it is a document that mentions promises and conditions, both oral and written, made between the landlord and tenant. When a landlord sells or refinances a rented property, they often require that the current tenant signs an ‘estoppels agreement’. The aim is to clarify all verbal and written promises and written conditions between the current tenant and owner. Purchasers of such real estate products often require that the seller provide with the estoppels certificate signed by current tenant to ascertain the tenant’s rights to the property owner as well as owner’s obligation to the tenant.
Estoppels agreements signed by the current landlords and tenants prevent the new landlord and the current tenant from raising claims against one another against the promises and conditions between the former landlord and tenant. They inform the rental property’s new owner about each party’s obligations, and thus protect them from conflicts resulting from misunderstandings between them. As buying and financing rental property has become more complex as a result of new laws, codes, tenant rights, and individualized agreements between landlords and tenants, an estoppels agreement has become essential to provide security to both owner and tenant.
