Beware Dodd-Frank: Perils with Private Lender or Seller Financing
Do you represent sellers who finance the sale of their residential real property?  Do you represent private lenders or non-traditional lenders whose loans are secured by residential real property? If the response to either question is "yes", then you need to register for this webinar to learn how the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act has dramatically changed your client's (and your) responsibilities.  Attorneys who are unaware of whether their clients may qualify as “mortgage lenders,” “mortgage loan originators,” or “mortgage servicers” may be unintentionally exposing their clients to adverse regulatory action by leaving them unlicensed, unregistered, and unable to comply with the minimum standards for all individuals and business who engage in mortgage lending.    This webinar will provide a discussion of the base regulatory requirements for non-traditional lenders, and identify pathways toward substantial compliance with a growing set of laws and regulations.

To Tax Effect or Not: Does the Imminent Sale Doctrine Still Exist?

Questions and issues to be addressed include whether a trial court is mandated to reduce the value of assets for potential tax consequences, no matter how certain or uncertain they may be, whether the Imminent Sale Doctrine still exists, the lawyer’s responsibility to present tax consequences, and possible alternatives, including unequal distribution, to immediately tax effecting assets.
