Real Estate Drafting
In this transactional course, students learn to prepare and revise documents used in commercial real estate transactions from the perspectives of the parties. Discussions and assignments are based upon hypothetical fact patterns and mock negotiations conducted by students and guest speakers. The course teaches students to identify and clearly address the legal and business issues that arise in the preparation and revision of documents. Documents covered in the course include letters of intent, real estate brokerage agreements, commercial leases and subleases, contracts for sale of vacant land and condominium units, deeds and easement agreements, and basic construction documents. The course is useful to students who plan careers in real estate or other transaction-based areas of practice. 2 credits.
