April 2020 Special Edition

An informative e-newsletter for the Real Property Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan.

Coronavirus and Real Property Law

Welcome to a special edition of the Real Property Law Section e-Newsletter. The shelter-in-place orders and other measures arising out of the COVID-19 pandemic are creating issues for real property attorneys and their clients. The editors have gathered information from a variety of sources we hope will be helpful. The list includes articles from other real estate practitioners as well as links to webpages from various agencies. This is not an exhaustive list of resources; if you have other information that would be useful for real property law practitioners, send them to the editors for possible inclusion in future editions.

Please note that the RPLS has gathered these articles but does not necessarily endorse the views expressed by the authors.

Websites and Links Related to the Coronavirus

Real Property Law Section Website

An important resource always available to section members is the RPLS page on the State Bar of Michigan website. It provides access to a wealth of resources including the Michigan Real Property Review, materials from Homeward Bound, Groundbreakers, summer and winter conferences, videos of presentations, and more. These resources are not necessarily focused on the COVID-19 outbreak but may be useful in general and are always available to RPLS members.

Please submit articles, links, or other resources you have found helpful during the COVID-19 outbreak to e-Newsletter editors gzatz@bodman.com, pat.paruch50@gmail.com, or hlax@bodman.com

Thank you and best wishes for health and safety to you and yours.
