Road and Easement Law From A to Z

Workshop Description/Agenda

Get Results For Your Road and Access Law Clients

Conflict is inevitable when it comes to road and access law and who is entitled to what. Yet when clients call you in to determine who has rights in an easement, private road or right-of-way dispute, traditional negotiating tactics can fall short. As a result, agreements blow up, cases don't settle and - too often - you end up in court. Attend this seminar and walk away with a proven and positive approach for addressing and resolving disputes as they arise in the volatile environment of road and access law. Register today!

  • Be prepared to handle easement issues by knowing how private roads are created.
  • Protect clients' rights - understand the procedure for gaining access to roads.
  • Solve road and access issues that arise during real estate transactions.
  • Identify what red flags to look for during a title search.
