BOOK OF THE MONTH
REAL ESTATE ESCAPES Tim O’Dwyer For Pity Sake Publishing, RRP $24.95
There are lessons to be learned from the misfortunes of others. In his 40 years of practising law, author Tim O’Dwyer has seen a lot of property calamities. One highlight (or lowlight for the people involved) is the story of a scorned lover who decided not to sign a contract after receiving a loan of over $300,000 from her ex to help her buy a house. How did it end? You’ll have to read the book!
Real Estate Escapes is filled with cautionary tales about escaping contracts, leases, persecutions and legal liability. Every anecdote provides useful insights (plus a healthy serving of schadenfreude). O’Dwyer has also slipped in a handy glossary of legal terms and a list of legal resources if you need help.
Ten readers can win a copy.
