California Real Estate Law : Text and Cases
This book provides not only the theories of basic law, but also the topics and techniques that readers need to apply the law in actual situations.It offers in-depth coverage of the four areas faced most often in practice -- leases, deposit receipts, listing agreements and deeds of trust -- featuring an up-to-date list of actual, relevant case profiles that bring the law to life. Reflected throughout the book are many recent changes in law -- such as the elimination of justice courts, dollar amount changes of many statutes, etc. -- as well as topics of interest to today's legal professional -- such as alternate dispute resolution (including arbitration and mediation), toxic waste, environmental control and more.
