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.
At this how-to seminar, attendees will 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.
A diverse panel of leading Boston Real Estate attorneys will identify and
discuss key issues and possible solutions, and provide useful insight to the new
and aspiring real estate lawyer.
