Program explores real estate issues in a COVID-19 world

The Oakland County Bar Association (OCBA) will present “Common Residential Real Estate Issues in a Covid-19 World.”  This online seminar will take place on Wednesday, May 13, from noon to 1 p.m via Zoom.

Government-mandated closures and other regulations designed to mitigate the effect of COVID-19 have impacted both the residential and commercial real estate landscape. The OCBA's Real Estate Committee has assembled two panels of experts to provide answers to frequently asked questions from clients whether they are landlords or tenants.

This seminar will address common concerns in the residential marketplace, including:

• Breach of contract, force majeure, PPP/SBA funding
• Mortgage market, virtual closings and electronic signatures, asset portfolio analysis, brokerage issues
• Residential evictions under the CARES Act, county-specific regulations, short-sales
• Issues facing homeowners and condominium associations, short-term rental property owners and community associations

Panelists include:

  - Mark P. Boettcher of Lawyers Realty LLC
  - Paul Carthew of Carthew Law Firm PC
  - Scott Galloway of Galloway & Collins PLLC
  - John Gwyn of Cummings, McClorey, Davis, & Acho
  - Joe Wloszek of Hirzel Law PLC
  - Kaitlyn Carr (moderator) of Kitch, Drutchas, Wagner, Valitutti, & Sherbrook
