Written Assignment #3 Ch. 24
Obtain a Deed to a real piece of property. You can do this by looking at the one you, your family, or your friends have on a home, building, or piece of real property. Or simply, walk in to any court house and asked the Clerk of the Court to look up a Deed on some piece of property, there are 1,000’s there!! If no avail, contact me and I will assist you; however, you must ask me prior to the start of week three. First, does the deed contain the 4 elements of a deed? Identify them. Second, what type of deed is it; do you agree in that type; what protections does it contain? Third, make your deed better by redrafting one you like! (PLEASE FEEL KEEP CONFIDENTIAL PERSONAL ELEMENTS OF THE DEED IF NECESSARY—Address, price, etc. when in doubt make it up!)
