Contentious contracts often breed fights over earnest money if the contract is terminated.  This course will examine such issues as: (1) what to do when earnest money is forfeit due to a failure to address a contingency within the timeframe required under the contract; (2) what to do when the other party to an escrow won’t agree to a release; (3) litigation tactics; and (4) negotiations tactics.  The advantages of not holding earnest money and the alternatives to consider.

Erica Minchella is a 1981 graduate of Loyola University School of Law. Her expertise includes the spectrum of conventional and distressed real property issues for residential and commercial properties, foreclosure defense, short sale transactions, sales out of decedent’s estates and personal and land trusts.
