    Professors' Corner: Mortgages and Condo/Homeowners Association Liens: Recent Developments in Lien Priority

    June 14, 2016 1:30 PM by Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section

    Complimentary RPTE member only, non-CLE Teleconference recorded on June 14, 2016


    In all states, common interest ownership law permits a condominium, cooperative, or homeowners association to assert a lien upon a lot or unit within the community when its owner fails to pay the common expense assessment allocated to that lot or unit. In some states that have adopted statutes comparable to the Uniform Condominium Act or the Uniform Common Interest Ownership Act, the association has a limited priority for some portion of the unpaid assessments (typically, six or nine months’ worth).

    In the wake of the mortgage crisis, the issue of whether (and to what extent) an association’s lien should have priority over other liens has produced a great volume of litigation as well as aggressive efforts by federal regulators to negate or pre-empt state law priority rules. Our speakers will address recent judicial, statutory, and regulatory developments, including:  (1) the rationales for (and against) association lien priority; (2) whether the association’s lien priority constitutes a true lien priority or merely a payment priority; (3) whether the association’s limited priority is recurring or can be asserted on a one-time-only basis; (4) whether the association’s priority extends to interest, attorneys’ fees, and other costs of collection; (5) the effect of the federal Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) on state law association lien priority rules; and (6) FHA’s proposed rule under which reverse mortgage loans would be ineligible for assignment in states that provide the association with limited lien priority.

    Professors' Corner: A Lawyer's Guide to the Law of Public Art

    May 10, 2016 1:30 PM by Real Property, Trust and Estate Law Section

    Complimentary RPTE member only, non-CLE Teleconference recorded on May 10, 2016


    The use of art in public spaces has captivated the minds of federal, state, and local policymakers in recent years, with some cities even requiring that private developers include public art in all new projects. Moreover, ownership of public art has drawn the attention of lawyers and advocates, particularly when it comes to competing property and management rights between the public, the artist, landowners, and interested third parties. This program begins with an overview of the intellectual property rights in connection with public art, explaining the differences between the rights in the intangible work and the rights in the physical object itself. The program continues with a case study of the City of Oakland's art requirement for private real estate developers, exploring the property and related legal issues that surround such regimes.

    Complimentary RPTE member only, non-CLE Teleconference recorded on March 17, 2016

     

    Recorded plats and restrictions run with the land and are referenced by deed and listed title insurance policies, while zoning regulations apply throughout an entire county or municipality.  Private restrictions are enforced by adjoining property owners or property owners who have been granted title from a common grantor, whereas zoning regulations are typically enforced by the particular county or municipality, or by private property owners who have demonstrated special damages to justify standing to bring suit.

    Professors' Corner: Understanding Inquiry Notice: Its Utility, Risks, and Doctrinal Complexities

    March 8, 2016 1:30 AM by Adam Bielawski

    Complimentary RPTE member only, non-CLE Teleconference recorded on March 8, 2016

     

    Purchasers of real property, including lenders who take mortgages, are bound not only by prior interests enumerated in the public records (“record notice”) and by interests that they actually know about, but also by off-record interests for which they have inquiry notice. The doctrine of inquiry notice can be especially difficult to grasp, both in determining when a duty to inquire further is triggered and how far a buyer must go to satisfy her obligation to conduct a reasonably prudent investigation. Inquiry notice doctrine exists to protect the property rights of persons holding prior-in-time interests not fully or perfectly shown by the public records. Often those interests are legitimate, with substantial reasons why their holders merit protection. Yet, if invoked too frequently or if it creates duties of lengthy and costly investigation, inquiry notice can create inefficiencies or even stymie altogether beneficial transactions.

    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.
