As an introduction to Real Estate Law, this course offers students a fundamental understanding of property rights, principles of land ownership, sale, financing and conveyance, contracts, liens, mortgage financing, deeds, mortgages or deeds of trust, settlement concepts, leasing, and other property concepts.
Real Estate law defines the elements and principles essential to the buying and selling real property. Real Estate refers not only to a piece of land, but the buildings on it, the natural resources crops, water, minerals that come with it, as well as the various interests associated with it. Far from a simple transaction, Real Estate law governs the procedures surrounding the titles to and conveyance of real property. Real Estate law also governs various substantive issues related to housing discrimination, housing credit discrimination, and community reinvestment. At a more practical level, however, Real Estate law defines the appraisal, finance and regulatory issues that cover the sale and transfer of real property as well as the licensing requirements of brokers and agents that operate within the confines of these transactions.
