The party, often called a conduit borrower or conduit obligor, borrowing bond proceeds from the issuer and, in such case, is responsible for making interest payments and repaying principal of the bonds as it becomes due.
Borrower’s Counsel serves as counsel to the Borrower in connection with the issuance of Conduit Bonds. Borrower’s Counsel renders an opinion as to the status of the Borrower (e.g., a 501(c)(3) Organization, a state or local governmental entity or a for-profit corporation), as well as to the enforceability of the documents signed by the Borrower such as the Loan Agreement. In addition, Borrower’s Counsel often addresses real estate issues and renders an opinion on the lien created by a mortgage or a deed of trust.
