We are very pleased to have LJBA member, Shanna E. Welsh-Levin, as our speaker this month. Shanna will speak about California’s Housing Policies, during which she will review how recent state and local laws aimed at increasing housing density will adversely impact multifamily landlords’ management of their properties. The discussion will address how these policies intended to help fix California’s housing crisis can backfire, causing higher costs for both landlords and tenants. Included within the discussion will be multifamily properties, Accessory Dwelling Units, eviction laws, and short term rental restrictions.

We hope that all of you can attend this 1.0 hour MCLE credit program.

Information About Our Speaker:

Shanna E. Welsh-Levin

Attorney Shanna Welsh-Levin is the owner and Senior Attorney of So Cal Realty Law. She is a member of the State Bar of California, and the San Diego County Bar Association. Mrs. Welsh-Levin is a California licensed real estate broker and an active member of the San Diego Association of REALTORS®. She has served on committees at SDAR and attended legislative functions as a representative of the association. She is also a member of the California Association of REALTORS® and regularly attends the C.A.R. Legal Affairs Forum.

Mrs. Welsh-Levin has twenty years of experience handling real estate legal matters including litigation, trials, mediation, and transactions. She represents real estate investors and professionals to prepare joint venture agreements, purchase and sale agreements, leases, and related contracts, and to enforce those contracts through the court, if necessary.

During the recession and housing crisis from 2007 through 2014, Mrs. Welsh-Levin participated in hundreds of HOME Clinics that took place throughout San Diego County, Imperial County, and Riverside County. The clinics were sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In doing this, she developed a deem understanding of mortgage lending and servicing.

Mrs. Welsh-Levin is confident litigating against big mortgage banks and servicers on behalf of California property owners. Mrs. Welsh was instrumental in passing California’s short sale anti-deficiency statute. Working with Senator Denise Ducheny’s office, Ms. Welsh helped to introduce Senate Bill 931, to protect consumers from their lenders when they are unable to pay off the balance of their mortgage loan. The bill created California Code of Civil Procedure §580e, and made it mandatory for lenders to forgive the remaining balance of the mortgage debt when the borrower completes a short sale of their home. Mrs. Welsh-Levin has considerable knowledge regarding short sales, foreclosures, and loan modifications.

Mrs. Welsh-Levin holds the degree of Juris Doctor from California Western School of Law in San Diego, California. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology and Jazz Music. She worked as a professional jazz and pop musician and taught private saxophone lessons for many years.
