Coverage of many subjects sets this text apart: solar and wind energy rights, agency, property management, real estate valuation, real property insurance, defaults and foreclosures, Federal Consumer Mortgage Protection Programs, public control of real estate and historic preservation acts, and bankruptcy and real estate transactions―the current forum for deals. Accessible writing style combined with thoughtful pedagogy make this text ideal for undergraduate students. Features include chapter outlines, objectives, and summaries; introductory scenarios to prompt class discussion; marginal definitions; legal terms in bolded text; and Key Terms, Concepts and problems at the end of each chapter for review. Contemporary Real Estate Law features the best and most current cases on each topic from courts across the United States. Many case-based examples throughout the text ensure students can apply the principles they learn. Management Applications challenge students to apply the law to real world settings, and “Focus on Ethics” sections highlight managerial decisions. Time-tested real estate forms and practice tips are provided to stimulate class discussion, and a critical thinking writing assignment based upon a set of facts rounds out each chapter.
