Which came first – water or land? Water is that critical element often overlooked and misunderstood by the general real estate lawyer. Understanding and incorporating knowledge of water rights (title, use, quantity, quality, transfer, and disposal) is essential to every real estate transaction.
This program will:
• Suggest the due diligence checklists of the basic water rights, title and contract topics, uses and user limitations and requirements.
• Provide advice on how to locate and draft essential documents coordinating water and land resources.
• Identify issues of existing conditions, effects of too much or too little water (especially considering extraordinary storms and climate events), and ways to address those issues to make the deal work.
Basic water due diligence is a vital part of every real estate transaction. This program will explain the due diligence issues that need to be on the diligence list and the questions every real estate lawyer should ask.
