For immediate release
The New Jersey Real Estate Commission has approved a new Continuing Education Course, “Stigmatized Property,” written and presented by South Jersey attorney Robert J. Incollingo. The Course Identification/Reference Number is: C20160701.
Without exaggeration, the ways in which society balances and addresses competing concerns over real property stigmatized by psychological impairments and unwanted social conditions makes a fascinating story. This course will equip the practicing real estate professional with an overview of the law of stigmatized property, both in its development and in its present state, and encourage recognition that stigma is not a thing of the past but remains an evergreen issue. As an example of how the real estate industry copes with issues arising from changing mores and commercial pressures, the history of New Jersey’s coming to grips with AIDS and HIV-related illness as a stigmatizing condition of property will be detailed, and contrasted with approaches taken by other states and the Federal government. The material will be delivered with reference to the common law of real property, as well as to New Jersey and Federal case, statutory and regulatory law. Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be better able to assist the consumer client to understand and manage issues arising in the sale and rental of stigmatized property.
