Overview

The Real Estate Contracts Handbook is a popular guide to writing clear, concise and legally-correct real estate contracts. The 189-page Handbook contains over 100 useful contract clauses together with explanations, commentary, articles and sample forms.

Since laws vary by state, there is no one-size-fits-all contract. Use the Handbook in conjunction with your own contract form. Most standard forms lack the language you need for anything other than the simplest situations. With the Handbook, you'll never be scrambling for the right contingencies and clauses.

The Handbook also contains articles and insights to help you understand the special issues present in residential real estate contracts. Then, it offers practical insight and real-life solutions to contract drafting.

1. How to Write a Clear, Concise and Correct Contract;
2. Suggested Contract Clauses;
