Our knowledgeable and courteous attorneys are experienced in all facets of real estate, from the simplest purchase to the most sophisticated transaction. In addition, we work closely with The Alex Group, a full service real estate firm. As with business deals, a properly handled real estate transaction can frequently prevent litigation when a transaction is not successfully concluded, or whenever a dispute arises.
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 manmade 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.
