Knowing all the ins and outs of property law from state to state can be a difficult and time-consuming task. When issues arise related to ownership and tenancy of property, it is important for lawyers, real estate brokers and agents, and landmen to have an efficient and comprehensive way to both understand and clarify the precedents, regulations, and rights associated with state property laws. Lyttons Handbook on Texas Property Law covers a broad expanse of various aspects of Texas property law, and it offers a range of comprehensive perspectives on many topics related to property, ownership, sovereignty, and landlord/tenant rights. Containing thirty chapters with extensive citations to legal authority, it provides law and real estate professionals with a user-friendly and practical guidebook for quickly and efficiently navigating and understanding Texas property law, codes, and legal precedent. When legal disputes arise related to owning and leasing property; maintaining estates; managing residential or commercial tenancies and condominiums; handling deeds, mortgages, and covenants; and controlling rights to waters, soils, and products of the land, this comprehensive handbook can help both professionals and laypersons better understand both the laws and how to approach resolution.

Texas Real Estate License Exam Prep

Features of Texas Real Estate License Exam Prep (TX-RELEP): - National Principles & Law Key Point Review (45 pages) - Real Estate Math Key Formula Review & Practice (17 pages) - Texas-Specific Laws and Practices (36 pages) - National Practice Tests (500 questions) - Texas Practice Tests (125 questions) - Texas Sample Exam (100 questions) We know the real estate licensing exam can be tough, and very nerve-wracking to prepare for. That’s why we created the Texas Real Estate License Exam Prep (TX-RELEP) the way we did. Since we have been managing real estate schools and developing curriculum for forty years, we know how all this works – or fails to work. TX-RELEP is comprehensive in that it contains both key content review and testing practice. And the text review is Texas-specific – not just simplistic national content, but terse, relevant and accurate Texas laws and regulations presented as a well-organized set of state ‘key point reviews’ ideal for pre-test memorization. But let’s not dismiss the importance of the national content either. TX-RELEP’s national key point reviews are a succinct compression of tested national principles and practices that comprise the national portion of state license exams from coast to coast. Our content is drawn from our own national textbook, Principles of Real Estate Practice – one of the most widely used principles textbooks in the country. Finally, our national content, as well as our question selection, is further tailored to the state testing outline promulgated by Pearson Vue for Texas. Thus the breadth and depth of the law reviews and test questions reflect the topic emphasis of your state’s testing service and your Texas license exam. A word about the test questions… TX-RELEP’s testing practice section consists of ten national practice tests, six state practice tests, and one state exam sample test. The practice tests are roughly 50 questions in length and the sample test is 100 questions. The test questions are designed to cover the content covered by the law reviews – which reinforces your learning of the total body of information tested by your Texas exam. The questions are direct, to the point, and designed to test your understanding. When you have completed a given test, you can check your answers against the answer key in the appendix. You may also note that each question’s answer is accompanied by a brief explanation, or “rationale” to further reinforce your understanding. In the end, as you know, it’s all up to you. Unlike other publications, we are not going to tell you that using this book will guarantee that you pass your state exam. It still takes hard work and study to pass. But we have done our best here to get you ready. Following that, the most we can do is wish you the best of success in taking and passing your Texas real estate exam. So good luck!!

Let the Seller Beware

The 32 Buyer Outs in the Texas Real Estate Contract

Author: Reba Saxon

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9780983143635

Page: 152

View: 9909

Why this handbook? Texas real estate contracts are driven by consumer-focused law. In some ways, it is as if the seller is viewed as a giant corporate manufacturer of this large product to be sold for many thousands of dollars, vs the poor, defenseless buyer, whom we must protect. To provide this protection, there are more than thirty "outs" for buyers in our residential contract and related addenda. There are only three for the Seller! This book outlines and explains the entire Texas Real Estate Sales Contract for the resale of One-to-Four Family Residential properties and includes all related addenda explained by a seasoned negotiator. It will benefit any Agent, Broker, Buyer or Seller of residential property in Texas. Many of the aspects may also apply to contracts available in other states, but this book applies to practice in Texas. The real estate sales contract is THE most important document in a real estate agent's briefcase. Listing agreements are nice, buyer representation agreements are nice, but their use only indicates the possibility of income. Nobody is going to get paid until a contract is written and closed. It is imperative that you know the contract inside and out, for yourself and for your clients, since the contract conveys property and large sums of money. It is the single most important aspect of our business.

"Since growing in use from the early 1990s land trusts have become a popular investment option. This is due to them providing the security of investing in 'brick and mortar' whilst offering other additional advantages. Investing in land trusts makes it possible for investors to own small parts of properties if they do not have the finance or do not wish to purchase the property outright. The lower cost of purchasing just a portion of a property can allow investors to diversify into a larger number of properties. This diversification reduces exposure to market fluctuations in particular property markets. Investing in land trusts also allows the investor to separate themselves legally from their property assets"--Pub. website.

Written by a practicing emergency physician, The White Coat Investor is a high-yield manual that specifically deals with the financial issues facing medical students, residents, physicians, dentists, and similar high-income professionals. Doctors are highly-educated and extensively trained at making difficult diagnoses and performing life saving procedures. However, they receive little to no training in business, personal finance, investing, insurance, taxes, estate planning, and asset protection. This book fills in the gaps and will teach you to use your high income to escape from your student loans, provide for your family, build wealth, and stop getting ripped off by unscrupulous financial professionals. Straight talk and clear explanations allow the book to be easily digested by a novice to the subject matter yet the book also contains advanced concepts specific to physicians you won't find in other financial books. This book will teach you how to: Graduate from medical school with as little debt as possible Escape from student loans within two to five years of residency graduation Purchase the right types and amounts of insurance Decide when to buy a house and how much to spend on it Learn to invest in a sensible, low-cost and effective manner with or without the assistance of an advisor Avoid investments which are designed to be sold, not bought Select advisors who give great service and advice at a fair price Become a millionaire within five to ten years of residency graduation Use a "Backdoor Roth IRA" and "Stealth IRA" to boost your retirement funds and decrease your taxes Protect your hard-won assets from professional and personal lawsuits Avoid estate taxes, avoid probate, and ensure your children and your money go where you want when you die Minimize your tax burden, keeping more of your hard-earned money Decide between an employee job and an independent contractor job Choose between sole proprietorship, Limited Liability Company, S Corporation, and C Corporation Take a look at the first pages of the book by clicking on the Look Inside feature Praise For The White Coat Investor "Much of my financial planning practice is helping doctors to correct mistakes that reading this book would have avoided in the first place." - Allan S.

Freakonomics

A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything

Author: Steven D. Levitt,Stephen J. Dubner

Publisher: Harper Collins

ISBN: 0062132342

Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? How much do parents really matter? These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He studies the riddles of everyday life--from cheating and crime to parenting and sports--and reaches conclusions that turn conventional wisdom on its head. Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They set out to explore the inner workings of a crack gang, the truth about real estate agents, the secrets of the Ku Klux Klan, and much more. Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, they show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives--how people get what they want or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

ethics." Certainly our industry is bound by the formal constraints of law in national, state, and local jurisdictions. What this volume reminds us, however, is that those laws are only as good as the personal "sea of ethics" in which each of us operates. THE ETHICS OF PROPERTY INVOLVEMENTS Stephen E. Roulac The Roulac Group San Rafael, California and Visiting Professor University of Ulster Ethical considerations are a dominant theme in the management literature. As "Ethics and ethical issues surround our liver, ... ethics has become one of the most rapidly growing areas of management research, with over 800 articles and 1,400 books appearing since 1990" (Schminke, Ambrose, and Miles, 1998). Compared to business and business management,however, the research and writing on real estate in an ethics context is in the very early stages of development. The lack of a developed literature on ethics in real estate is reflected in the response by one highly placed executive to my solicitation for funding to support the publication of this volume: "I didn't know there were any ethics in real estate!" Fortunately, the Summa Corporation and the Amer ican Real Estate Society believe in the importance of ethics in real estate, for their cosponsorship has made possible this special monograph on the subject of Ethics in Real Estate. The support of the Summa Corporation and the American Real Estate Society of this pioneering volume is warmly and appreciatively acknowledged.
