The lawyer’s role in a real estate transaction, be it residential or commercial, is usually not clear to the new and developing lawyer.  While forms exist and the young lawyer has a myriad of secondary sources to refer to, nothing is more beneficial than hearing the concepts, trouble shooting tips, and issues that may arise, explained to you by the experts in the field.

At this how-to seminar, attendees will learn how to effectively and efficiently navigate a real estate transaction from offer to closing.  Specifically, attendees will gain an understanding of how to use a closing agenda, how to coordinate and understand the due diligence process, how to obtain title insurance and clear title issues, how to handle (and what to expect) from a commercial lender, and how to close a deal whether in person or through an escrow closing.

A diverse panel of leading Boston Real Estate attorneys will identify and discuss key issues and possible solutions, and provide useful insight to the new and aspiring real estate lawyer.

Panel I:

I. Drafting and Negotiating the Purchase and Sale Agreement
II. Managing the Due Diligence Period
III. Title Insurance: Agents, Issue Spotting and Removing Encumbrances
