This course covers the law concerning land trusts. The law varies from state to state and so it is important to understand the background of this vehicle for the ownership of real estate. In Florida for example, there is a statute governing land trusts; in Illinois land trusts are largely the creation of case law. A revamped land trust act has been developed and proposed to the Florida legislature. This course has been approved for 2 hours of continuing education credit
