Real Estate Law Overview

Real estate law is the umbrella term used for the branch of civil law that covers the rights to obtain and utilize land and any property that is built on it. Various real estate transactions, such as leases, purchases and sales are also controlled by specific real estate laws that often vary by state. Real estate lawyers represent homeowners, real estate buyers, real estate sellers, and landowners in different types of situations, disputes, and transactions involving residential and commercial real estate.

Foreclosure Issues

Foreclosures happen when a lender or other lien holder takes ownership of a property because the property owner has failed to make regular payments to their lender in a timely manner, and other attempts to acquire the past payments have failed. A lien holder is an organization or individual that has the prerogative to take possession of the property for payment on a debt.

When a lender takes over a property home through foreclosure, the lender typically wants to sell the property as quickly as possible instead of facing the expenses that come with the upkeep, maintenance and security. Potential homebuyers often find themselves attracted to the many benefits that a foreclosure can offer. However, it is important to know that the purchase of a foreclosure can be complex and various legal issues can arise. If you are considering the purchase of a foreclosure, it is essential to have a lawyer look over all documents and paperwork before the purchase is finalized so that you know everything you are getting into. For example, the home may have liens on it or require thousands of dollars worth of repairs before it is considered to be in livable condition.
