    To Negotiate or Not to Negotiate “Standard” Lease Transactions

    January 20, 2016 3:31 PM by Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section

    Complimentary RPTE member only, non-CLE Teleconference recorded on January 20, 2016

     

    Many tenants are reluctant to have their attorneys review what they believe are “standard” lease transactions.  The rent may not be a significant amount (for that client) over the term of the lease or the tenant may believe that the landlord is inflexible or offered the lease on  “take it or leave it” terms.  In some cases, tenants are concerned that the cost of attorney review (whether on their behalf or after being told that any changes would require the payment of the landlord’s attorney fees) outweighs the potential risks of executing the landlord’s proposed lease.  This program will discuss working with tenants in these (and other) situations including the prioritization of issues in “standard” transactions, typical landlord responses in these situations and other practical tips.

    Professors' Corner: Legal and Design Issues in Making Public and Private Spaces Inclusive and Accessible to all People

    January 13, 2016 1:46 PM by Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section

     

    Complimentary RPTE member only, non-CLE Teleconference recorded on January 13, 2016

     

    Land use ordinances and building codes that regulate the use and construction of buildings determine access to and enjoyment of private and public spaces. These regulations are problematic when they permit design features that function as barriers to universal accessibility. Likewise, architectural design of infrastructure, urban parks and neighborhoods impacts accessibility and inclusion with respect to the use and enjoyment of community amenities. The speakers will discuss the legal and practical challenges to these facially neutral barriers and address ways to accommodate autonomy, aesthetics and safety. This will include a discussion of legal requirements imposed on local governments in exercising planning and zoning authority within their respective jurisdictions.

    Complimentary RPTE member only, non-CLE Teleconference recorded on December 9, 2015

     

    When a lender makes a mortgage loan to refinance an existing first mortgage, the lender typically expects its refinancing loan to have first priority.  If there is an intervening lien on the mortgaged property, however, a priority dispute may result in which the intervening lienholder argues that the recording statutes give it priority over the refinancing lender’s mortgage lien.
