Course Description

The U.S. housing market is in a crisis. Home prices have plummeted and the rate of foreclosures have risen to an alarming rate. Attorneys with clients that are either at risk of a foreclosure or looking to purchase an underwater home must have a firm understanding of the foreclosure process and the options that are available to avoid a foreclosure. This CLE program gives attorneys a primer on the current state of the housing market and how to deal with issues such as HAMP, negotiations with first and second lien holders, bankruptcy, refinancing, litigation between borrowers and lenders, short sales, deficiency judgments, tax implications, and government assistance programs. The author and presenter of this CLE program, Mr. Gary Laturno, Esq., is a prominent attorney, arbitrator, and real estate broker in San Diego, and has developed and presented a number of continuing legal education programs on property and real estate law.
