Real Estate Law

Real estate law involves many complex questions concerning  rights in the ownership and possession of land and buildings attached thereto. 

Often  referred to as the law of real property to distinguish it from the law of personal property,  real estate law is governed by legislative enactments and common law built up over the course of centuries of judicial decisions.

Because real estate is one of the oldest areas of the law, it uses many old terms and concepts passed down for generations.  Many rights and responsibilities regarding real estate, however,  have evolved and been updated by legislative enactments.

Because of the complexity of real estate law it is recommended that a buyer or seller of real estate retain a real estate professional to assist in a real estate transaction.
