One of the first things lawyers learn is that no one can claim an interest in another's real estate without a deed or a written contract. Surprisingly, there is an exception to the rule. Constructive trusts, often filed by disgruntled family members, can tie up real estate claims for years and cost your clients dearly. This comprehensive CLE course will explain constructive trusts and their elements, notices of pendency, and perhaps most importantly, how to defend against constructive trusts including through depositions and summary judgment motions.
