Most real estate transactions involve one or several opinion letters from counsel. These opinion letters cover a range of topics from title to the property and the absence of security interests to the authority to enter into an agreement and its enforceability, tax or other compliance, and a variety of other matters. These letters, important parts of due diligence, help identify, limit, and allocate risk in transactions and often are a condition of financing or closing. This program provides you with a guide to the types and practical uses of opinion letters in real estate transactions and how to draft their most essential provisions.

• Understanding the role of the attorney, the context of a transaction, the negotiating process, and the costs of the opinion
• Types of letters—validity enforceability, title and security interests, taxes, compliance, and more
