Alameda County Bar Association

Jim W Hildreth of Real Estate Mediation Services completed continuing education on Real Estate Hot Topics in Oakland, CA. The class was centered around a Court of Appeal Real Estate case Holmes v Summer whether California Real Estate Brokers representing a seller of residential real estate are under an obligation to the buyer of that property to disclose that it is over ecumbered and cannot in fact be sold to them at the agreed upon purchase price unless the either the lenders agree to a short sale or the seller deposits a whopping $392,000 in cash into escrow to cover the shortfall. This case should be a concern to brokers, salesmen and the general public especially in this period of rampant foreclosures and short sales.

Hildreth's practice has a focus with real estate disputes.
