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

Every property is different, and working with a real estate attorney can help you avoid common pitfalls to ensure the protection of the property for your future enjoyment or the success of your business.  While it is not legally required to work with an attorney during all real estate transactions, it can prove to be fruitful in many situations. For example, real estate attorneys can conduct a transaction history review to ensure that a residential property has no unknown owners attached to it.

In addition to this, attorneys can also work with clients to provide valuable insight on appropriate mortgaging options and are helpful for negotiating and writing up fair and balanced contracts of sale.

Other things real estate attorneys can do:

  • Handle tax law affairs
  • Provide insight on landlord-tenant laws
  • Conduct estate planning
  • Handle insurance law matters
  • Review liabilities concerning accidents and injuries
