Development Deal Goes Bad | Colorado Commercial Contract Dispute Lawyer

RS Holdings, LLC, a development company owned by two Colorado Springs men is facing a lawsuit brought by Northern Lights, LLC which bought a loan from ANB Bank, according to The Gazette. The suit names not only RS Holdings, but the two owners of the company, who personally guaranteed an $8.8 million loan with ANB for a piece of property that they were planning to develop. RS Holdings had a history of handshake deals with ANB, often giving them their business in exchange for good rates. In this case, the loan ended up being sold to Northern Lights and the property foreclosed. At that time, the property was valued at $1.94 million less than the outstanding balance of the loan. Northern Lights is seeking that amount plus 21% interest. The owners of RS Holdings, meanwhile, have filed a countersuit claiming that ANB played a role in the loss of value of the property, and that the bank did not make good on a verbal agreement involving turning the property back over to the bank.

Business relationships can always be complicated, but in most cases, all parties involved in a contract act in good faith to meet their obligations under the deal, maintain a good professional image, and keep a good name among the companies with whom they do business. However, more than half of the cases in civil courts involve contract disputes of one kind or another.
