Every real estate transaction represents a significant investment and can have a big impact on your financial picture. If you’re like most people, a home is the largest purchase you’ll ever make. Laws regarding everything from the house you buy or build to the benefits and rights legally considered attached to the property are covered in the branch of real estate law.
Whether you are buying, selling or refinancing your residential or commercial property, involved in landlord/tenant disputes, having property boundary disputes with a neighbor, problems with construction defects or anything else related to real estate property, you’ll find that Megeredchian Law provides comprehensive legal services in all aspects of real estate law.
What is Real Estate Law?
Real estate law covers the right to possess, use, and enjoy the land. This applies to not only land but everything that is attached to it. This type of law can be very complex and is regulated by state, federal and local statutes.
Home buyers and sellers are affected by these laws just about every day, as are renters and landlords. From the first time you buy a home or any other piece of property, you’ll probably have legal questions that an experienced attorney can help you answer. You may wonder about the home buying and selling process, landlord/tenant laws or what to do about construction defects, toxic mold or trespassing, and we can help answer any of these questions.
The practice of real estate law deals with anything related to property such as:
- Protecting your rights and interests in real estate sales, purchases or transfers
- Landlord and rental property issues, which includes both renter’s and homeowner’s rights
- Title to property
- Claims against property
- Zoning and land use
- Property disputes
- HOA Litigation
- Eminent Domain
