 Annual Update
Laws & Legal Pitfalls That Can Impact Your Bottom Line

REIA Annual Update: Laws & Legal Pitfalls That Can Impact Your Bottom Line on Wednesday, September 12, 2018  

The REIA Annual Update of Laws that Affect Real Estate Investors and Legal Pitfalls That Can Impact Your Bottom Line are all rolled into one event!

Fellow REIA Members and Washington Attorneys Scott Scher of Sternberg Thomson Okrent & Scher, PLLC and Chris Casey of Casey Law, PLLC team up to educate us on laws that affect us now, laws that may affect us down the road and pitfalls that can make real estate investors easy prey for problems.

We'll cover the Distressed Property Conveyance Act - a law that can land you in jail for 'simply' doing a deal - with the only attorney that we know of who has been in court on behalf of investors at the County, Appellate and State Supreme Court levels that may finally be able to resolve many of your questions.  We will continue with legal detail on Purchase & Sale Agreements, Seller Financing, Title and pitfalls of the CIBA (Commercial) agreements, flippers licensing requirements, potential construction defect risks in flipping and landlord / tenant issues, especially in the wake of the Tiki Apartment debacle in Tacoma.
Do you have questions on other legal aspects of real estate investing?  Email us your question and we'll ask that it be answered at the meeting!
As always, enjoy networking with like-minded investors of all experience levels and businesses to build or grow your real estate investing team!
About Our Speakers 

Chris Casey focuses on personal and business liability protection, business formation, purchase and sale and other contract documentation, commercial building and multi-family residential housing owners. What distinguishes Mr. Casey is his prior years of experience as a construction defect defense attorney, his record in the courtroom as a criminal prosecutor and civil trial attorney, as well as his commitment to developing long-term relationships with each client.

Mr. Casey started his career, while still a law student, in Oregon as a trial attorney with the District Attorney’s Office. At the D.A.’s Office, he worked with the Drug Enforcement Trial Unit, and successfully litigated dozens of felony bench and jury trials. Mr. Casey left the D.A. with an undefeated trial record.
