Real estate law encompasses a broad range of issues in relation to property law that you may have never thought about before. Unfortunately, the real estate transactions are getting more and more complicated.
Real estate lawyers serve two primary functions in the real estate world. They act as litigators and/or handle the legal aspects of real estate transactions. Real estate lawyers deal in real property and mediate real estate transactions gone sour. Real estate lawyers are highly specialized, litigating fraud cases such as disclosure fraud and mortgage fraud or concentrating on land use, subdivision and zoning laws. Other areas of expertise can be in residential or commercial real estate.
