Obtain analytical tools and practical guidance to enhance your career and improve your ability to develop successful real estate projects by gaining an in-depth appreciation and understanding of the technical and legal sides of commercial real estate transactions.

This four-day graduate level course provides you a robust understanding of the necessary legal and technical sides of any real estate transaction in California. Starting with the actual purchase, the attendee will learn step-by-step how the transaction progresses through:

  • Design and architecture
  • Entitlements
  • Survey and engineering
  • Title and title insurance

You’ll get hands-on exposure to forms and procedures that experts in each of these fields use daily. And, learn the “why” behind the procedures and forms used so that you can confidently interact with attorneys, title officers, architects, and civil engineers, and others whose work is critical to successful real estate development.

Program Content

  • Learn and understand what forms and documents underlie commercial real estate transactions; purchase and sale agreements, escrow instructions, title policies, architectural plans, survey, and lending documents
