Diane started practicing law about 10 years ago. She now deals with ‘happy’ law which means real estate whether buying or selling. Thanks to COVID, 99% of closings are now virtual. Diane was recently asked by a 4 year-old what she does as a real estate lawyer. Here are her main duties:
1. confirming the right people are signing and involved.
2. Confirming information about the property and
3. Confirming the money!
We also learned some key points regarding JVs and private mortgages. It’s much easier to get in JV compared to exiting one. How is the information being shared? Are some of the JV partners silent partners? How is the money tracked? There are so many important factors to consider when entering a JV. The Exit must be planned before anything is done.
