Whether you're a real estate professional or a property owner, this is the ultimate must-have resource for understanding and managing all the important liability issues inherent in real estate transactions. Simple enough for novice buyers, sellers, and real estate agents but in-depth enough for real estate pros, this one-of-a-kind guide is a great source of information.

As an active real estate broker who has served as a consultant and expert witness in hundreds of real estate-related lawsuits, Barbara Nichols provides expert advice. She shows homeowners and investors how to minimize their risks and helps agents and brokers spot problems that can lead to lawsuits.

With Nichols' thorough coverage, you'll learn everything you need to know about your potential liability in a transaction and understand your obligations as a real estate professional or property owner. Her advice can be utilized not only in the United States but also in Canada and elsewhere.

As real estate continues to increase in value, the legal stakes for real estate professionals, builders, property inspectors, buyers, and sellers are higher than ever. The best way to protect yourself is to understand real estate laws and transaction pitfalls and prevent disputes from ever reaching court. The No-Lawsuit Guide to Real Estate Transactions answers your real estate liability questions and shows you how to cut your risks, protect your property investment, and prevent costly lawsuits before they happen.
