Real Property Institute examines foreclosure problem
Because Ohio leads the nation in residential mortgage foreclosures and is likely to do so for some time to come, the Real Property Law Institute 2007 on Thursday, Feb. 1 and Friday, Feb. 2, will examine this issue during the presentation “Home Ownership: the American Dream; Foreclosure: the Ohio Nightmare” with attorney Edward M. Kochalski of Manley Deas Kochalski on Thursday.
“A brief examination of the causes and possible solutions for individual cases will be explored from the perspective of lenders' counsel,” Kochalski explains. “Because almost none of these cases result in actual trials, an emphasis will be placed on the practical elements of settlement.”
Kochalski will discuss the lenders’ perspective on the current market; what a borrower’s attorney needs to know and have; and settlement options that benefit both the borrower and the lender.
In addition to Kochalski’s presentation, the Real Property Law Institute features topics on problems with home builders; the future development of the U. S. 33 Dublin-Marysville corridor; the new predatory lending law; the new ALTA title insurance policy forms; the impact of House Bill 135 on condominium boards; how real estate is handled in divorce; and an update on residential real estate.
Not only are ten hours of CLE and ten hours of real estate credit available for attending both days of the institute, title insurance credit is pending. The institute has also been granted specialist credit for commercial and industrial property law and residential property law certification.
