Cal Law Trends and Developments

Article Title

Real Property


"Real property" as a topic exists only in a law professor's mind. Practicing attorneys may specialize in representing title companies or developers or brokers or any of the other entrepreneurs who make their living in one way or another from real estate, but none of these lawyers would claim that his proper field of expertise is real estate per se. Consequently, any article on developments in the field of real property law really becomes a series of separate articles on developments in some real estate specialties, rather than a cohesive whole. I have tried, here, to cover the three specialties which have undergone the greatest growth during 1969, and that may be of some interest to those who do not devote their entire time to these matters.
