  • Description

    Modern Real Estate Finance and Land Transfer—sophisticated, yet teachable—explains the increasingly complex legal, business, and tax issues surrounding real estate transactions with discussion relevant to both commercial and residential situations. Through a transactional and interdisciplinary approach, students learn the general rules of law, their underlying rationale or policy, and how (or whether) a rule can be superseded by the mutual consent. Real-world examples help foster practical skills required of attorneys in real estate firms, and the text is appropriate for both a basic Real Estate Transactions or Finance course and also advanced seminars. Topical and chronological organization features coverage of both Real Estate Sales and Real Estate Finance and follows the lending cycle in modern financing. Questions and planning problems help students examine issues in the context of relevant transactions and documents for sale, finance, leasing, and development transactions. The authors are scholar-practitioners who skillfully mix practical skills and theory students will need in today’s competitive legal markets.
