Ground Leasing Committee


Message From The Chair



Welcome to the webpage of the Ground Leasing Committee!

Our Committee was formed to provide a forum for attorneys who are interested in ground leasing of real property. Our projects have included compilation of a bibliography of ground leasing resources, publication of a roster of Committee members listing areas of expertise, and assembling a collection of ground lease clauses contributed by Committee members. We'd like to continue with projects that will be helpful to Committee members and welcome your suggestions.

We're looking for members who have interest, experience or both in the area of Ground Leasing. We have many opportunities for you to expand your expertise in ground leasing. Please join!


Who We Are

We are a strong and growing committee within the Leasing Group of the ABA-RPTE, recognized as leaders in committee activities, new membership and innovative approaches to help dirt lawyers be better lawyers. We would love to have you join us!

Our mission is to provide a forum for committee members to share ideas related to the special features of ground leasing and to assist all other Leasing Group members to understand and deal with ground leases. Many of our committee members come from large and small private firms in the United States and Canada; others come from the developer, tenant, lender, title company, or academic sectors.

"All helping one, and one helping all." Take a look at our Committee Roster on this page.
