"Nelson, Whitman, Burkhart and Freyermuth's Real Estate Transfer, Finance, and Development retains the organization and coverage of its predecessors but offers new coverage of the tremendous changes that have occurred in the past three years in real estate finance and the real estate industry. The text discusses the reasons for the real estate market's collapse and describes the new regulatory structures that have been created in response. It also provides a complete update on how Article 9 of the UCC has affected real estate finance and how the Internet is transforming the real estate industry."--Publisher's website.

Law of Desire

Temporary Marriage in Shi’i Iran, Revised Edition

Author: Shahla Haeri

Publisher: Syracuse University Press

ISBN: 0815652941

Category: History

Page: 299

View: 2084

As an Iranian Muslim woman and a granddaughter of a well-known ayatollah, Shahla Haeri was accepted into the communities where she conducted her fieldwork on mut’a, temporary marriage. Mut’a is legally sanctioned among the Twelver Shi’ites who live predominantly in Iran. Drawing on rich interviews that would have been denied a Western anthropologist, the author describes the concept of a temporary-marriage contract, in which a man and an unmarried woman (virgin, widow, or divorcee) decide how long they want to stay married to each other (from one hour to ninety-nine years) and how much money is to be given to the temporary wife. Since the Iranian revolution of 1979, the regime has conduction an intensive campaign to revitalize this form of marriage, and Shi’i ulama (religious scholars) support it as positive, self-affirming, and cognizant of human needs. Challenged by secularly educated urban Iranian women, and men and by the West, the ulama have been called upon to address themselves to the implications of this custom for modern Iranian society, to respond to the changes that mut’a is legally equivalent to hire or lease, that it is abusive of women, and that it is in fact legalized prostitution. Law if Desire thus makes available previously untapped and undocumented data about an institution in which sexuality, morality, religious rules, secular laws, and cultural practices converge. This important work will be of interest to cultural anthropologist, religious scholars, scholars of the Middle East, and lawyers as well as to those interested in the role of women in Islamic society.

The book adopts a practical, skill-oriented approach in examining the role that the real estate development lawyer plays at each of the following ten stages of the development of a commercial real estate project: 1. Gaining control of the project site; 2. Securing governmental approvals and incentives; 3. Forming and capitalizing the project entity; 4. Closing the land acquisition; 5. Obtaining construction financing; 6. Designing and constructing the project; 7. Negotiating the project lease; 8. Executing an interim exit strategy; 9. Operating the project; and 10. Selling the project. The purpose of the book is to introduce law students and young lawyers to the real world issues that lawyers face every day when they strive to help their developer clients achieve their business objectives.
