Overview

This challenging yet accessible casebook examines the legal, business, and tax issues of real estate financing through a transactional and interdisciplinary approach. Written by scholar-practitioners, Modern Real Estate Finance and Land Transfer: A Transactional Approach, Fourth Edition, uses real-world examples to illustrate the lawyer’s role in both residential and commercial real estate transactions.

Among the attributes that make this class-tested casebook a success:

• a sophisticated, yet teachable style
thorough explanations of the increasingly complex legal, business, and tax issues surrounding real estate transactions
• the transactional and interdisciplinary approach demonstrates the general rules of law that govern a given real estate transaction, the rules’ underlying rationale or policy, and how (or whether) a rule can be superseded by the mutual consent of each party
real-world examples that help foster practical skills required of attorneys in real estate firms and clear explanations that demonstrate rules of law that govern a real estate transaction
questions and planning problems that allow students to examine issues in the context of relevant transactions or documents
• a topical and chronological organization that covers both real estate and real estate finance and follows the lending cycle in modern real estate financing

Special features of the Fourth Edition, completely updated to reflect changes in the law, include:

bankruptcy reform law changes
• discussion of the popularization in recent years of “exotic” forms of financing, particularly in residential markets
changes in the prepayment area
treatment of the so-called mortgage meltdown in 2007
updated and substantially rewritten materials on the economics of real estate investments, selection of the ownership entity, and securitization
new title insurance forms
• consideration of mold—the “new asbestos”
• an updated Teacher’s Manual

Modern Real Estate Finance and Land Transfer: A Transactional Approach, Fourth Edition, is the perfect casebook for professors who cover the complex financial and tax aspects of real estate law—whether in a basic real estate course and or an advanced seminar.
