   The term real estate generally refers to the ownership or use of land. Real estate law is a branch of civil law that covers the right to possess, use and enjoy land and the permanent man-made additions attached to it. Real estate law directly or indirectly impacts most of us on a daily basis, affecting homeowners, renters, landlords, home buyers and home sellers.

   A real estate agreement between a buyer and seller is governed by general principles of contract law and individual state laws. It is often required in real estate contracts that the title to the property sold be "marketable." An attorney or a title insurance company is frequently employed to investigate a title's legal marketability.

   In order to pass title, a deed with a proper description of the land must be executed and delivered. Some states require that the deed be officially recorded to establish ownership of the property and/or provide notice of its transfer to subsequent purchasers.


   In addition to the purchase or sale of lands, states typically regulate the renting or leasing of property for residential or commercial purposes. Such laws cover a range of practices, such as how security deposits are handled, evictions and more.

   Whether you are buying, selling, renting real estate, evicting a tenant or need a lease reviewed, our office will help sort through the paperwork and make sure your interests are protected.
