REAL ESTATE LAW FOR LEGAL PROFESSIONALS is an accessible, complete, and easy-to-understand introduction to the principles of real estate law. Using actual cases and examples - many drawn from the author's extensive experience as a real estate attorney and instructor - it covers all the concepts and issues that paralegals and real estate professionals should understand. Areas of coverage include: estates in land, concurrent ownership, landlord-tenant law, rights, duties, restrictions, transfers, real estate sales, lending, title searches, closings, deeds, mortgages, promissory notes, condos, coops, homeowner associations, and real estate development and investment. Each area is first introduced with a high-level overview that sets the stage for the deeper coverage that follows. Effective learning is promoted through chapter outlines, actual and hypothetical cases, definitions of key terms, review and critical thinking questions, and other pedagogical features.
