Nov. 16, 2011 – Although condominiums have been around for years, consumers don’t always understand the details of this form of home ownership. Once nothing more than converted apartment buildings, today’s condos range from stand-alone structures that look like single-family homes, to high-rise buildings, side-by-sides, huge complexes with hundreds of units, eight-unit buildings, recreational condos, timeshares, and more. The range of services and amenities, advantages and disadvantages is vast, as are the commitments that a buyer should – or should not – undertake. That’s when people turn to lawyers for advice.
From planning to governance to law changes
Every attorney involved with real estate in Wisconsin knows that he or she must be ready to handle all issues relating to condominiums, from planning and development through buying, selling, and financing, from insurance through governance. For that reason, they have found the State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE™ Wisconsin Condominium Law Handbook to be indispensable.
And now the handbook has been supplemented to reflect recent changes in the law, revised rules, regulations and forms, as well as a changing housing market. The authors of this far-reaching, and extensive work – each an experienced Wisconsin attorney – cover every aspect of condominium practice, beginning with an overview of condominium law and practice, and covering all practical issues. They provide sharp and concise analysis, and make appropriate reference to current statutes, regulations, and caselaw, on state, local, and federal levels.
The Wisconsin Condominium Law Handbook (available in both print and online via Books UnBound™) and its companion from the PINNACLE library, the Drafter’s Guide to Wisconsin Condominium Documents, comprise resources for every attorney who is – or may be – involved in condominium practice in Wisconsin.
