New Electronic Resource Alert – Real Property Ownership and Taxation
Real Property Ownership and Taxation is a new electronic title that is available at our Downtown and Vista locations as well as our partnership libraries in El Cajon and Chula Vista. It is a reference for anyone dealing in real property.
It covers questions and issues for when you are buying commercial or residential property, from how to take title when the property is first acquired to how to calculate taxes after disposing of the property. Topics include estate planning, probate, lis pendens, homesteads, and bankruptcy as well as the more general issues such as how to hold title, escrow and recording of title, property and title insurance, and property and income taxation.
