April 4, 2012 – Not all condominium documents – bylaws, articles of incorporation, the declaration, rules, regulations, and the plat itself – are created equal. They all begin with the Wisconsin Condominium Ownership Act; but the better ones are written by lawyers who use the State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE® Drafter’s Guide to Wisconsin Condominium Documents nuts-and-bolts guide to condominium issues, fully revised in 2012.
The Drafter’s Guide to Wisconsin Condominium Documents begins with the statutes but goes far beyond. Available in both print and online via Books UnBound®, the guide includes sample forms, filings, and provisions that both satisfy the statutes and provide maximum benefit to your client.
The authors, experienced Wisconsin attorneys Jesse S. Ishikawa and Brian W. Mullins, also point out situations in which the statutes are incomplete, ambiguous, or flawed, and offer suggestions for handling those matters. Erudite, enlightening, more entertaining than a law book should be, the 2012 edition of the Drafter’s Guide also provides practical advice on issues and problems all too often overlooked, ignored, or poorly handled in many existing Wisconsin condominium documents. It’s also the perfect complement to PINNACLE’s recently supplemented Wisconsin Condominium Law Handbook.
Whether setting up or dissolving condominiums, advising buyers or sellers, working in business or residential real estate, drafting documents or reviewing them, every attorney who deals with, or may someday deal with, condominiums should have this guide in their library.
