The Southern California Chapter of the Appraisal Institute will be holding its 46th Annual Litigation Seminar this Friday, November 15.  The list of topics sounds fantastic:

  • If the Glove Doesn’t Fit . . . Make it Fit (Abuses in the Tax Appeal Process)
  • Hot Topics in Eminent Domain
  • Planning for and Managing Large Acquisition Projects — Lessons Learned
  • Uneconomic Remnants — Are They Always?
  • We Just Need Your Property on a Temporary Basis — For the Next 4 Years
  • Decisions, Decisions, Decisions (A Review of Recent Major Valuation Cases)
  • The Trouble With Ignoring Building Codes
  • War Stories from the Estate Litigation Crypt
  • Order in the Court!  Valuation Issues in the Family Law Court

The event will be chaired by MAI appraiser John Ellis of Integra Realty Resources Los Angeles, and the lineup of speakers is quite impressive.  They include, just by way of example, Sydney Hawran, MAI, of Hawran & Malm, Mona Nemat of Brissman & Nemat, Mark La Bonte of Overland, Pacific & Cutler, Michael Yoshiba of Richards, Watson & Gershon, Gary Weisberg of Woodruff, Spradlin & Smart, and Rick Friess of Allen Matkins.
