Overview

PRACTICAL REAL ESTATE LAW, 6E, is an excellent text for educating and training future paralegals about the intricacies of real estate law and transactions. This user-friendly text covers the central areas involved in transactional real estate in detail. These areas include real estate contracts, real estate brokerage relationships, real estate finance, as it specifically relates to residential and commercial processes, surveys, title insurance and federal taxation and how it applies to the ownership and investment in real estate. The text also discusses the many new laws that have been passed to assist homeowners facing foreclosure. Case summaries successfully illustrate how the legal principles operate in the real world and will give your students practice in reading and analyzing case material. While many theories of residential and commercial real estate transactions are the same, your students will benefit greatly from the residential-specific and commercial-specific discussions, forms, and checklists that explain the vast differences.
