Real estate law is the name given to the branch of civil law that covers rights to possess, use, and enjoy land and the permanent man-made additions attached to it. This includes the capacity to hold interests in real property, permissible interests in real property, relations between owners, relations between owners and the community, landlord and tenant relations, the transfer of interests in real property, and real property financing, including deeds and mortgages. Real estate transactions, such as purchases, sales, and leases, are governed by a wide body of federal and state law, and the requirements established by state law often differ from state to state.

Buying real estate is a big, often complicated decision. This decision can affect your finances for years to come—negatively or positively, depending on how you approach it. You may think that purchasing a home through a real estate agent will protect you from the many variables that can arise, but that isn’t necessarily true. That’s because a real estate agent doesn’t work for you. Their one and only job is to sell you a house.
From taxes to deeds and inspections, an attorney trained in real estate law can explain the ins and outs of the sale in terms you can understand. Unlike a real estate agent, their job is to serve your best interests. A real estate lawyer won’t leave out any information when giving you their advice on the purchase.
Another reason to hire a real estate attorney is if you decide to sell your property. As the seller of the property, you are legally responsible for things such as adhering to safety codes. Not following the rules when selling your home or property could lead to a long and expensive court battle. With a real estate attorney by your side, you can feel secure that you are doing things legally and responsibly.
