Real Estate Law
Real estate law is concerned with a wide range of legal disciplines. Simply put, it is the law that governs who may own and use land – whether it’s for residential or commercial purposes. This type of law also governs a number of components that go into the process of buying and selling or investing in property or business premises. This is in order to ensure that transactions are thoroughly conducted and recorded.
Real estate law is also based on the local government’s rules and regulations, such as zoning laws and environmental considerations.
Some specific areas that real estate law is concerned with include:
- Real estate rights and obligations
- Property subdivision
- The registration systems
- Family law issues
- Tax rules
- Ownership and title rules
- Liabilities of buyers and sellers
- Finance and banking regulations
- Business premises leases
- Environmental law and climate change
Working with Real Estate Attorneys
Legal advising can also be used as a tool for building stronger, more defined and profitable businesses.
In general, legal advisors can help with a number of tasks that a business may need. For example, they can help maintain a company’s organizational structure, take care of tax-related affairs, negotiate and prepare contracts and agreements, organize financing transactions, provide counselling on a range of business issues, assist in matters of corporate expansion and management of assets, as well as offer assistance during litigation or disputes with partners or shareholders.
Other reasons legal advisors can prove to be fruitful for your business include:
- They are excellent at maintaining files and records
- They keep companies in good standing with provincial and federal authorities
- Their integrated teams defend all types of client interests
- They are cost-effective and can save your business a lot of wasted time!
