What is Real Estate law?

Real estate and real property law are the rules that govern land, either residential or commercial, and the structures on it. Real estate law directly and indirectly impacts landlords, home owners, buyers, sellers, and renters.

Real estate attorneys utilize their expertise to provide guidance on property issues and handle everyday transactions, as well as legal disputes that may arise concerning real estate.

When should you hire a real estate lawyer?

While not required, hiring an attorney for real estate transactions can be useful for the average homebuyer.

Attorneys can help review the contract of sale to make sure there it is fair to all parties and ensure there are no legal issues that may interfere with the transaction. Commercial real estate transactions can be complicated, expensive, and involve a high amount of risk.

Hiring an attorney versed in real estate law can help you avoid costly, time-consuming mistakes.
