Real Estate

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 man-made 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.
