In today’s economy, many real estate deals are ending at the litigation table instead of at the settlement table. In this new course, you will learn the practical considerations when representing buyers, sellers and agents in both commercial and residential real estate, along with the legal theories that are likely to come into play when a deal fails. Our experienced faculty will cover topics ranging from whether the cost to get the deposit back is more than the deposit, when filing a lis pendens is proper (and when it is not), the effect of litigation when remarketing the property, warranties and disclosure obligations (and the litigation they cause) and whether the lender has liability when it decided to pull out.
