Laura Schroeder will present her popular “Water Rights Bootcamp” on JUNE 2 in Sisters, Oregon. This presentation will be an educational seminar suitable for all with and interest and concern for water rights in Oregon. For details and an agenda see the Schroeder Law Offices web site.
Tough times dictate that we cut our discretionary spending. Property owners may defer some maintenance and other due diligence. But spending money on education and protecting your property interests must be considered a continued important investment that is not discretionary.
Hunkering down and waiting for it to pass us by will not work. Business as usual will not work because the usual isn’t any more. Everything has changed. It is unlikely that what we once thought “normal” will ever be again.
For only $75, you will be both educated and entertained at a full day advanced water rights educational seminar. Register at www.water-law.com. If you missed our bootcamp, no matter: We will answer any questions you bring to the advanced seminar to raise you to the advanced level!
Another opportunity for only $375 is to have us make a specific public records request and pull all your water rights files to provide you with a full electronic copy. Likely you keep your deed to the property is a safe place, your water right files should have equal status. Many property owners have more value in their water rights than the dirt and don’t even know it. At minimum, we recommend obtaining your water rights files. Email Ms. Daryl Cole: firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a water rights authorization form to make this due diligence investment.

To get a working basic knowledge of water law in Oregon, consider attending a Water Law Bootcamp. Laura Schroeder teaches an all day educational water law seminar for free. The sponsoring organization, usually Water for Life, provides coffee and lunch and charges less than 25% of other similar continuing education accredited seminars.
As a former educator with a major in Theatre, Laura makes the day not only educational, but fun and entertaining! The day is filled with information on the history of water law; the prior appropriation doctrine; obtaining permits, extensions, transfers, and certificates; avoiding forfeiture and abandonment; and general due diligence tips related to water marketing.
Yesterday, I had the privilege of teaching a Water Law Bootcamp for Water for Life. Over forty people attended at the Baker County Fairgrounds in Baker City Oregon. Unlike previous presentations, attendees focused their questions primarily on due diligence water rights review in real estate transactions and valuations of water rights when lending on water righted properties. Apparently in these economic times, realtors and lenders are giving much more scrutiny to what water rights exist on the property subject to a transaction.
