Learn About Real Estate Law
Real estate law is a branch of law which governs transactions in commercial and residential properties. It covers a person's rights in possession and usage of "real property," which refers to land as well as permanent, immovable structures like an office building or a house.
Some common issues in real estate law are the ownership and transfer of real property interests, real property financing including mortgages and deeds, and rental usages. Actual purchases and sales of real property are regulated by a wide array of state and federal laws which are designed to ensure fair and efficient transactions.
