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 commercial lender, and how to close a deal whether
in person or through an escrow closing.
A diverse panel of leading Boston Real Estate
