This advanced contract law course builds upon the basic principles of contract law. In this advanced contracts course, the licensee will build upon their basic contract law knowledge to include concepts beyond the basics. The licensee will be introduced to the numerous problems which may arise in the formation, interpretation, and performance of a contract which may affect its validity. The licensee will also learn how the concepts of assignment and delegation may apply to a real estate related contract.
Conditions and contingencies are involved in most real estate transactions. In the discussion of conditions and contingencies the licensee will be introduced to how conditions impact most contracts.
