7.5 MCLE Credits: 7.0 Professional Practice; 0.5 Ethics
The course will review the basic scope, steps and procedures for representing purchasers and sellers of condominium units, co-operative apartments and residences with mandatory membership in homeowners associations. Typical transactions, including sales pursuant to public offerings and private re-sales, will be examined from contract drafting and negotiation, through preparation for closing, closing and post-closing requirements. Due diligence checklists, sample contracts, title insurance and lender requirements will be discussed. Ethical considerations will also be addressed.
The program at each location will emphasize regional customs and practice.
The course is appropriate for those familiar with transactions involving single family homes who wish to learn more about transactions involving common interest communities. The program is also intended for practitioners with little or no experience in residential real estate transactions.
