This module discusses liens, taxes and foreclosures. There are many types of liens, as well as several kinds of taxes, that can attach to a parcel of real estate. When borrowers default on a debt, foreclosure is the process by which lienholders collect the unpaid portion of a debt.

Such knowledge also helps licensees to better advise buyers and sellers.

The first lesson presents a general overview of liens. It explains the classification of liens and discusses the types of non – tax liens. Lesson two discusses taxes and tax issues, including ad valorem taxes, real estate tax computation, special assessments, real estate transfer taxes, federal income taxes, capital gains taxes and tax shelters for homeowners and investors. It also discusses the priority of liens. Lesson three addresses the methods of foreclosure, redemption, deficiency judgments, tips for homeowners facing foreclosure and fraudulent behaviors related to foreclosure.

The conclusion of this module presents real world dilemmas and applications of the information presented. As the student completes the module, he or she should try to paint a big picture of the issues surrounding liens, taxes and foreclosures, which the module addresses with comprehensive questions, activities and case studies.

    The purpose of this course is to offer a broad understanding of the purpose and execution of the 1031 tax – deferred exchange. This class will empower you to provide your clients with an alternative to paying capital gains taxes, however the course is not intended to allow or suggest that the student is now empowered to give tax advice. Real estate professionals should always recommend that a client get accurate advice from a qualified tax specialist.

    When engaging in real estate transactions it is always recommended that the client seek the advice of a qualified tax specialist as tax laws frequently change, and in many cases the real estate professional does not know the client’s total tax picture. There are circumstances in which the 1031 tax – deferred exchange is not the best avenue for a particular client at a particular time. On the other hand, it is important from the standpoint of professional liability that real estate experts at least explain the concept of the 1031 exchange to his investor client.

    This module includes the following lessons.

    • Introduction to 1031 Real Estate Exchange
    • Mechanics of the 1031 Exchange
    • Practice and Case Studies
