Water Rights Due Diligence, Availability Analysis and Transfers

Learn how to protect valid water rights and how to attack the assertion of invalid water rights.

Water is one of the scarcest resources on the planet, and it is one that has been fought over for hundreds of years. The ability to use water is literally a question of life or death for an individual or for the life of a business or community. Most people have no understanding of their water rights, how to prove them, how to protect them, how to defend them, or how to manage them in commerce. Water rights are most often appurtenant to land, but are sometimes treated as an afterthought in real estate transactions. This topic will prepare you to understand the principles applied to water rights, but more importantly how to protect valid water rights, and how to attack the assertion of invalid water rights.
