Fundamentals Webinar of Real Estate: What Young Lawyers Need to Know and What Old Lawyers Need to Recall

Meeting Description:

Real estate law is one of the simplest, and at the same time most complex, areas of the law.  It is simple because it does not move around so only the law of the state in which it is located governs issues involving real estate.  It is complex because, while the common law generally applies to real estate, most states have modified the common law by statute.  Being familiar with the law of the state is essential to avoid any disastrous consequences for the client.  A seemingly innocuous typographical error, misplaced punctuation marks, or addition or omission of essential language can change the effect of a document.  Having a fundamental awareness of conveying titles and examining abstracts will give the practitioners enough background to recognize potential problems and inquire further to avoid any major problems.
