Real Estate and Property Law encompasses a broad area of law that is heavily regulated by the federal and state government, as well as common law. Contract law is often overlapped in many aspects. The words “real estate”, “realty” and “real property” are, for the most part, used interchangeably. However, “real estate” has been more closely associated with just physical structure and the land. Real property/real estate includes more than just the visible aspects. It also comprises of the land and that which is attached to it, or what belongs with the land (possessions). These can be items such as the attached structures like buildings, homes, wooded lots, bushes and minerals permanently affixed to the land. In addition, it also pertains to the interests, benefits, and rights that are legally considered attached to the property. These can include certain rights to drill into the ground below, the air rights above, a timeframe for living on the land, or to acquire the real property in the future, and more.
As with practice areas of law in general, there are a number of issues related to the practice areas of real estate and property law. They include real estate purchases, sales, rights and interests in real estate and real property, transfers of real estate and real property, as well as the legal aspects of landlord rights and rental properties. There are also the issues of tenant’s rights, or homeowners and renters, title issues, settlement claims against property rights, new property development; property zoning and re-zoning for land use. Another area encompasses agriculture and farming issues in and of itself. Then there are the common home loans and foreclosures and various other relevant topics. Real Estate Law is a very complex practice area, made even further complicated by the ever changing laws and inconsistencies throughout different cities, counties, and states. Lake County real estate attorneys are well-versed in various and necessary activities, from helping individuals in court when threatened by foreclosure or violations, to taking care of boundary and zoning disputes, and also the drafting of deeds and filing of liens.
