If you are not familiar with residential litigation and are intrigued by more challenging residential assignments, this fast paced half-day seminar is for you!

You see how atypical residential properties are thoroughly analyzed for purposes of litigation. In “New House on an Old Dump” students will initially identify the appraisal problem. We will discern the difference between partial and complete remediation and their role in this appraisal problem. You will learn to differentiate between pounds of paper and critical information. Then we will discover how disclosure defects may affect market value. Learn what to do when a typical sales comparison approach is not applicable. Challenge your skills in an entertaining learning environment!

In the second case, “Home with a disappearing Dock,” deeded rights to community recreational amenities and due diligence in identifying rights associated with ownership are explored. Learn how questionnaires can be helpful problem solving tools.

The basics of title defect actions require identifying and measuring contributory value of a component, the disappearing dock. Learn tips to help you solve that difficult assignment in a convenient 4-hour seminar!

By the conclusion of this seminar learn how to:

    • Develop a scope of work and engagement letter
    • Identify important issues specific to the assignment
    • Determine necessary steps and procedures for appropriate valuation
    • Research and identify comparable sales
    • Employ appropriate hypothetical conditions when necessary for credible analysis
