Land & the Problem Areas - A Comprehensive Review with Peta Dollar
Whether your client is proposing to buy land to use for its current purpose or to develop it, there is a myriad of problems that can frustrate your client's intentions.
Some of these are relatively common - such as restrictive covenants and third party rights - whilst others - such as ancient monuments, manorial rights, and town and village greens and minerals rights - are less frequently encountered.
This new 3-hour course, relevant for both residential and commercial property lawyers as well as for surveyors and other property professionals, will cover the full gamut of problems, from those frequently encountered to those that are more esoteric, suggesting solutions, ways to mitigate each problem and what to tell your client.
What You Will Learn
