CEU's for this course:

This presentation will provide a summary of some of the legal aspects of green building. This program will discuss some common building agreements such as those between owners and contractors, buyers and sellers, and landlords and tenants in light of green building practices. It will also address some of the risks to those parties related to green building. As green building has increased, the potential for disputes in this area has also increased. Although there are not many cases yet regarding green building, unhappy parties have begun asserting claims, and it seems likely that these types of claims will continue to increase in the future. One way to reduce the potential for disputes is for parties to make their contracts clear about what the parties expect as to green issues.

Specifically, this program will cover:

  • Brief Introduction to Green Building and Some Common Green Building Standards
  • Risks Related to Green Building to Contracting Parties
  • Green Building Agreements
    • Design Contracts
    • Construction Contracts and Subcontracts
    • Purchase Agreements
    • Leases
