This course is primarily intended for land personnel requiring an understanding of the 2000 and 2017 CAPL Property Transfer Procedure.
The focus will be on a conceptual review of the major provisions of the 2017 CAPL Property Transfer Procedure, with a particular focus on the enhancements in the 2017 document and its suitability for typical low to modest value, straightforward producing property and undeveloped lands transactions. This review is largely designed to offer attendees comfort and confidence with the 2017 version of the document, so that they are best positioned to use it in the near term for the transactions for which it was designed.
