Real Estate Transactions

This guide provides resources, treatises, forms, journals & Web resources on Real Estate Transactions.


This guide is designed to assist with locating real estate transactions resources through the Law Library, Internet, and databases available to law students. Real estate transactions, such as purchases, sales, and leases, are governed by a wide body of federal statutes and a combination of state statutes and common law. The requirements established by state law often differ from one state to the next.

To navigate this guide, select a tab at the top of the page to locate resources on Treatises (Wisconsin), Treatises (General), Forms, Journals, or Internet Resources. Unless otherwise noted, all call numbers refer to locations at the UW Law Library. If you cannot find what you are looking for, you can search the Library Catalog or use our Ask a Librarian Service.
