Be prepared to handle all issues relating to condos
Although the red-hot rate of condominium sales and development has cooled, plenty of condos are still being sold, managed, planned, and built. You’ll never be unprepared to handle a condominium issue —from planning and development through financing, and from insurance through governance —with the Wisconsin Condominium Law Handbook at your side.
Helping Wisconsin practitioners since 1981
This real estate practice book was designed for Wisconsin attorneys who represent condominium developers and associations, unit sellers, and unit purchasers. Generations of practitioners have found it to be indispensable.
You’ll find everything you need to research an issue quickly and thoroughly with the Handbook’s concise analysis, timely case law, and relevant references to statutes and regulations. And you’ll know it’s current because the same experienced Wisconsin real estate attorneys who wrote it keep it up to date with regular supplements.
