Drafting for Real Estate Lawyers

Understand the concepts and organization underlying residential and commercial real estate transaction documents.

Residential and commercial real estate transactions are built upon the documents which lay out the terms and conditions for those transactions. In order to be effective, those documents must contain clearly articulated concepts and be organized so the parties to the transactions, and sometimes finders-of-fact (that is, judges and juries), can interpret those documents. It is a best practice if real estate transaction documents are designed and constructed from a proactive risk management perspective, using checklists to ensure the relevant substantive and procedural matters are addressed and not inadvertently dropped. This topic is intended to help real estate professionals such as developers, owners, property managers, engineers, surveyors, contractors, and attorneys understand how to prepare and review real estate documents in a variety of settings such as purchase and sale transactions, leases, development projects, shared ownership/management/cost-sharing arrangements (condominiums, cooperatives, owner associations), and mortgage financings.
