Our Single-Family Rental (SFR) Practice Group exhibits Duval & Stachenfeld LLP’s interdisciplinary

Practice Group Leader: Joseph Galvano and Paul Schwartz


The single-family rental market has been a very hot asset class over the last few years and appears to show no signs of slowing down (and we think will likely get even “hotter” in the post-COVID 19 era).

Duval & Stachenfeld has been an active participant in this area for many years and continues to see first-hand an increase in interest from investors (i.e., those looking for capital and those interested in making capital investments) and lenders looking to get into this area.  

Our Single-Family Rental (SFR) Practice Group exhibits Duval & Stachenfeld LLP’s interdisciplinary "pure play" approach by drawing upon its joint venture, restructuring, finance, land use, and tax attorneys.   In addition, there is a great deal of overlap with the firm’s best-in-class team of attorneys who comprise the Homebuilders Practice Group and Finance Practice Group.

  • Acquisitions of portfolios of single-family homes for rent
  • Joint ventures with developers to provide investment capital for the acquisition of properties for single-family homes for rent development
  • Acquisitions and dispositions of raw land and entitled home sites.
  • Unique SFR strategies, including, as an example, a strategy allowing renters to transition to direct homeownership
  • Acquisitions of pools of nonperforming loans encumbering single-family homes
  • Acquisitions of real estate owned (REO) single-family homes
  • Aggregation of portfolios house-by-house and pool-of-houses by pool-of-houses
  • Acquisition, construction, bridge and permanent financings, from both lender and borrower positions
  • Joint ventures, transaction platforms, and other business combinations between homebuilders and equity providers,
  • Land use, development, and construction
  • Workouts and restructurings
  • Tax issues arising from SFR transactions
