Written with the entry-level paralegal in mind, this text embraces a systems approach that builds proficiency in real estate file management. It provides a foundation of legal concepts, furnishes procedures on how to handle various client matters and involves the reader through exercises. It includes information for all subjects covered in basic paralegal real estate texts including the most common real estate litigation a paralegal may encounter. It also illustrates a commercial closing from beginning to end. The instructor's manual provides a synopsis for each chapter, a suggested instructor approach, answers to review questions, and highlights areas where state-specific materials need to be introduced. Clearly defined chapter objectives, reinforcing summaries, hypothetical client matters, ethical questions, practical assignments and an extensive glossary make this a well-rounded text on the essentials of real estate law for the paralegal.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I am very familiar with the reviewed work, as it is one of the finest pieces on the subject. It is used in many undergraduate associate programs. I have found the text to be light in weight but meaty in content. The author has an excellent writing style. It is quite readable.

I think that the content of the text, with the modifications noted above, is excellent. The text provides students with a clear understanding of the process and law involved in a real estate transaction.
