Why Take this Course?

Do you have a tenant “dabbing” in their apartment? Do you know what dabbing is and why it might damage the property and get you in trouble? Do you keep seeing photographs that you took of properties popping up on other websites? What is the deal with all this litigation about anti-trust? There have been a lot of changes in real estate recently and more are on the horizon. This class looks at Trista’s four favorite legal topics to prepare for real estate in 2024:
