Learn to avoid problems right from the start
Whether you’re involved in developing a condo project, working with condo owners, or assisting in a condo sale, you’re going to run into issues not found in traditional real estate transactions. Especially when it comes to documents you’ve never encountered before.
For most lawyers, the starting point for such documents is the Wisconsin Condominium Ownership Act. However, the Act is simply not enough. The statutes are often incomplete, ambiguous, or flawed. So how do you avoid drafting documents that will cause problems?
Luckily, there’s help. Jesse S. Ishikawa and Brian W. Mullins, the authors of the Drafter’s Guideto Wisconsin Condominium Documents, know you have to look beyond the Act. They point out its defects and offer practical suggestions on how to draft around them. The Guide will help you avoid issues and problems that have sometimes been overlooked, ignored, or poorly handled in many Wisconsin condominium documents
