Legal Tools for Radical Homeownership

Recorded by our Radical Real Estate Law School 2020

Speaker: Janelle Orsi (Sustainable Economies Law Center)

What can a homeowner do to secure their own housing while shepherding their home into permanent community stewardship? How can homeowners be part of a movement toward reparations and re-matriation? A growing number of land trusts and real estate cooperatives are emerging to support this transition, and the Law Center has been studying useful legal and financial tools, like life estates, easements, co-ownership models, split title, and estate planning tools. We’re excited to share what we’ve learned, share examples, and hear your ideas, challenges, visions, and more.
