LAW 911 - Real Estate Litigation
This course will study the forms and requirements of various types of litigation involving real property interests. It will cover those issues raised in the context of the acquisition of real property (like specific performance of the real property contract, actions for rescission and for damages); those designed to clear or establish title (such as actions to quiet title based upon adverse possession, easements created by implication or easements extinguished by misuse); those aimed at obtaining approvals for certain land uses (actions before zoning boards); those designed to recover for defects in title (title insurance claims); those against or in response to governmental actions (tax and condemnation proceedings and environmental laws clean up orders); and actions brought by lien holders and mortgagees for foreclosure. The course will examine the historical origins of the various forms and causes of action and endeavor to identify common procedural requirements. It will also address the substantive issues particular to each, seek to discern whether any underlying policy or theory, such as security of title, freedom of contract, free alienability, or economic efficiency, influences the resolution of the claims.
