Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course will introduce students to the fundamental issues involved in real estate transactions, including: (a) purchase and sale agreements; (b) closing real estate transactions, including contingencies, deeds, title insurance, surveys, physical and environmental inspections, zoning, easements, covenants and restrictions; (c) leases and landlord-tenant law; and (d) mortgages and deeds of trust. The focus will be different from the courses on Real Estate Finance and Real Estate Development, with some but very little overlap. The materials will include cases, analytical and practical essays, and examples of both residential and commercial transaction documents as a vehicle to focus on major legal and economic considerations underlying the drafting and negotiation of the transactions. There will be a traditional final exam, but if time and class size permits there may be one or two drafting or negotiation exercises that would factor into students# grade. Updated 3/2012
