Bar exam study notes to self

A preliminary list of things I've learned while studying for the bar exam:

- Don't sign over the deed to your house to someone and then toss the document in a desk drawer. Unless you don't like your heirs and you're trying to cause them problems.

- When you buy some real estate, get insurance on the property that takes effect upon signing the contract of sale -- don't wait until closing. You're just inviting a month's worth of arsonists, earthquakes, and tidal waves.

- When 2 neighbors are talking by the fence, the one who thinks he should win loses.

- Get it in writing and "record," whatever that means.
