Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The text provides not only the basic law, but also the tools and information students need to think and apply the law in everyday "real-world" situations. This exploration of current cases makes the law come alive for students. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

This book provides not only the theories of basic law, but also the tools and techniques that readers need to apply the law in actual situations. It offers in-depth coverage of the four areas faced most often in practice—leases, deposit receipts, listing agreements and deeds of trust—featuring an up-to-date list of actual, relevant case profiles that bring the law to life. Reflected throughout the book are many recent changes in law—such as the elimination of justice courts, dollar amount changes of many statutes, etc.—as well as topics of interest to today's legal professional—such as alternate dispute resolution (including arbitration and mediation), toxic waste, environmental controls, and more. For legal professionals focusing on real-estate law in California. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Mr. Gordon's book, California Real Estate Law, is an excellent reference for the homeowners, for investors and for brokers. It covers more than just plain law, as the author includes his tips and tricks learned from his experiences as an attorney and as a broker. Sometimes it is just as important to know what the law is as to know when to use the law. The book was surprisingly readable. Some books on law are so confusing or technical as to be useless and others are so simple that they don't provide enough law to know what you're doing. Gordon's book is a good example of something done right.
It seems to cover the whole field of real estate law, from neighbors trees on your property to when to take title as community property instead of joint tenancy. It encompasses from zoning to homesteads, and from condemnation to property taxes. In short, the 23 chapters cover the whole field of law.
What I most appreciated was the expanded materials on contracts, leases, deposit receipts, listing agreements and deeds of trust. The author went over most of these documents clause by clause, explaining when to use a certain clauses and when to avoid them. I'm using it as a great reference when buying and selling properties. My son found it handy in fighting a lease eviction. I think it's an exceptional book that should be on every investor's shelf, every broker's desk, and in every homeowner's bookcase.

This was a very expensive puchase and was horrible! I enrolled in the Legal aspects of Real Estate Law at DVC, CA community college and this is the chosen text book.

The flow of the book is awful. I cannot describe how much I dislike the book. The ideas do not flow, subject content is not explained very well, there are no summaries, word vocabulary, no chapter test questions, different font styles etc.

Just a rubbish choice in another world of college royalties decision and who to make richer. $70 to their pocket when students are struggling and want to learn good knowledge instead of piecemeal and distorted topics. Very disheartened with publishing, their internal quality team and the local college for supporting this book.

Format: Paperback
This is a really great book, which seems to cover all the areas of California law. I've referred to the book on several occasions and have found my answer each time. The analysis was very understandable and the book gave me a strong background so I understood the law. In some cases the book told me the best approach to take to achieve whichever result I wanted. The author's approach is very practical and useful. It's a great book and a valuable reference that has really made a difference for me in several situations.

Good book, in terms of the logical layout and content. Better than then one being used in the school I am in.

Good seller too.
