The Real Property Section of the Ventura County Bar Association has scheduled three great programs.

On May 22, Christian Spring, vice president and general counsel for Foreclosure Resources, Inc., will speak on handling foreclosures following Senate Bill 900 dubbed the “Homeowners Bill of Rights,” by California Attorney General Kamala Harris. Spring will also discuss current foreclosure trends, that expose clients to foreclosure-related losses.

On June 26, Gov Hutchinson, senior counsel and member of the legal services division of the California Association of Realtors, will give his always-popular legal update and discussion of recent revisions to select CAR forms.

On August 28, Ventura County Planning Director Kim Prillhart and Ventura County Building and Safety Building Official Jim MacDonald will present “Planning, Zoning & Building in Ventura County,” covering everything you want (and need) to know about planning, zoning and California Building Code standards.

Please note that the Real Property Section now meets at the Tower Club. Look for flyers for each of these programs in CITATIONS. If you have questions about these programs or the Section, or suggestions for future meeting topics, please contact me at or (805)988-8365. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

Ramon Guizar is of counsel to the Real Estate and Land Use Law Section of Oxnard based Nordman Cormany Hair & Compton.
