Real Property Law


The Real Property Section of the State Bar of Georgia provides resources for both the commercial and residential practitioner. The Section sponsors four seminars each year (Residential Real Estate in February, Real Property Law Institute in May, Title Standards in October and Commercial Real Estate in November) and co-sponsors the Foreclosure Seminar in November. The Section provides many additional educational resources and opportunities through a quarterly newsletter, webinar series, "meet and greets" and "lunch and learns". The Section also awards an annual scholarship to one real estate student from each of Georgia's law schools. In addition to education, the Section leadership works to improve the law by proposing and monitoring legislation of importance to real estate practitioners, creating initiatives to address ethical issues of importance t/o real estate practitioner and coordinating pro bono opportunities. The Section maintains liaisons with other practice-related groups such as GRECCA, GMBA, GAR and ALTA. Our website provides members with ready accessible resources such as Formal Advisory Opinions, the updated Title Standards, Georgia's Model Real Estate Opinion, practice handbooks for residential practitioners (Residential Closing and Trust Accounting), basic real estate forms and past Section newsletters.
