Lex Mundi has recently published a new multi-jurisdictional survey entitled Real Estate Survey II - Issues in Ownership of Real Property. This survey is the second in a four-part Real Estate Survey Series compiled by members of the Lex Mundi Real Estate Practice Group.
Real Estate Survey II - Issues in Ownership of Real Property covers many areas related to property ownership including fee simple ownership, ownership conveyance instruments, ownership records and searches, assurance of ownership for purchasers, common forms of investment vehicles, and state or local taxes levied on sellers or buyers. More than sixty-five jurisdictions are covered. The Issues in Ownership of Real Property survey can be downloaded free of charge in its entirety or by jurisdiction at http://lexmundi.com/lexmundi/Issues_in_Real_Estate_Survey_II.asp .
Part one of the Real Estate Survey Series, Issues Relating to Foreign Investment, can be accessed at http://www.lexmundi.com/lexmundi/Issues_in_Real_Estate_Survey_I.asp . Lex Mundi's Real Estate Practice Group is currently working to compile the third part of the survey series, Issues Relating to Finance, with the final survey in the series, Issues Relating to Leasing, being undertaken last.
