Real estate law is a complex practice area that encompasses a number of issues. Whether you are purchasing a home, selling land or dealing with real estate-related disputes, you may benefit from the counsel of a qualified real estate lawyer.
Understanding Real Estate Law
Real estate law exists to protect those who buy, sell, own or lease land and property. These laws govern transactions involving properties, the use of rental properties, real estate leases, easements and much more. In some cases, a real estate lawyer may simply act as an advocate for a client who is preparing to enter into a real estate contract. In other cases, a real estate lawyer may defend a client’s interests in court when a dispute arises.
Why Hire an Attorney?
Without the help of a qualified real estate lawyer, you may find yourself entering into a transaction that is not as beneficial for you as it could have been. For example, you may find that the land or home you have purchased does not have a clean title, that the deal was structured for the benefit of the other party or that the property had defects you didn’t know about prior to purchase. Once the contract has been signed, it is typically too late to change any of its terms. For this reason, it’s wise to consult a real estate attorney any time you enter into a contract. Real estate attorneys can also help you deal with real estate disputes, such as problems between landlords and tenants or cases of adverse possession.
