Lawyers should be thinking of residential leases like prenuptial agreements. They are documents that are meant to be signed by parties hoping for the best while the lawyer prepares them for the worst. The course will start with a look at the definitional requirements of a lease and go on to describe the overall structure of the document, the hazards for which it is meant to prepare and the various solutions it presents. Included in the course will be some of the current hot-button issues like transient occupancy, smoking, and nondiscrimination. As a conclusion, the course will take a look at alternative eviction processes, what courts they are brought in, and what some of the nuts-and-bolts issues are —all the time contextualizing them in the preparatory language of the lease.
Key topics to be discussed:
Lease drafting fundamentals
Current hot topics
The eviction process
