Item Description :


The lawyer’s role in a real estate transaction, be it residential or commercial, is usually not clear to the new and developing lawyer.  While forms exist and the young lawyer has a myriad of secondary sources to refer to, nothing is more beneficial than hearing the concepts, trouble shooting tips, and issues that may arise, explained to you by the experts in the field.

Purchase these materials to learn how to effectively and efficiently navigate a real estate transaction from offer to closing. Specifically, attendees will gain an understanding of how to use a closing agenda, how to coordinate and understand the due diligence process, how to obtain title insurance and clear title issues, how to handle (and what to expect) from a residential lender, and how to close a deal.

This CLE set identifies and discusses key issues and possible solutions, and provide useful insight to the new and aspiring real estate lawyer.
