OAKLAND, Calif., Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Continuing Education of the Bar - California (CEB), the leading source for legal education and research solutions for California lawyers, has just published a new book, Real Property Ownership and Taxation. This book is a primer on aspects of California law dealing with ownership, transfer, and taxation of commercial and residential real property. It is intended as a desk reference for any attorney dealing with real estate issues.
It is important for attorneys handling these matters to provide accurate answers quickly to their clients. Clients want attorneys they can be confident will protect what they have built and who will protect them and their loved ones from complicated tax matters.
This book provides answers to many questions commonly asked by real estate attorneys who handle the following topics: holding and choosing title, bankruptcy, and the probate and income tax effects of owning and transferring real property.
In particular, it covers issues that many real estate attorneys are not always familiar with: property taxes and assessments, income taxation of property sales and transfers, homesteads, and the impact of death on ownership. It also provides detailed coverage of forms of ownership; estate planning considerations of ownership, including estate and gift tax issues; escrow and recordation; title insurance; property insurance basics; and lis pendens.

Mandel, Reed Schreiter, Greg Nerland, Nancy Goldstein, Monique Jewett-Brewster, Anne Bruner Nash, and Agnieszka Adams are all contributing authors.
