Real Property Law

Cal. Real. Prop. Journal 2019, VOL. 37, NO. 4

Message from the Editor-in-Chief

Misti M. Schmidt

Welcome to our last issue of 2019! In this issue, we are focusing 100% on real property, with articles regarding assignments of deeds of trust and borrowers’ rights to attorney fees, a helpful overview of short-term rental regulations, and a timely discussion of San Francisco’s new Community Opportunity to Purchase Act, which might have implications for other cities in California. We also re-printed a brief article from the Section’s E-Bulletin since it addresses one of the crucial ethics issues that face us every day: Who is your client?

In addition to presenting these informative pieces, I’m pleased to introduce a new section in our Journal that will be dedicated to California Lawyers Association and Real Property Section business in each issue going forward. Flip to page 38 for a welcome message from our new Section co-chairs, as well as other announcements.

The Journal hosted two Editorial Board orientations this Fall, and we were pleased with the number of excellent candidates seeking to join the board. I’ll announce our new board members in the next issue. If you are interested in getting involved with the Journal as an editor, please reach out to me at
