We will examine basic ownership rights and other real property interests such as estates, landlord and tenant rights, easements, and restrictions.   

This course will cover real estate purchase and sale transactions and other methods of obtaining interests in real property. Attendees will become acquainted with documentation such as purchase contracts, leases, deeds, mortgages, and liens. Due diligence topics such as title insurance and survey will be reviewed.
