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.
