More than buildings and land
From determining who has a right to possess and use land or buildings to handling landlord and tenant disputes, attorneys focusing on real estate law can involve a wide variety of issues. Understanding that real estate law is not just about buildings and land but also the people who use them and the environment that surrounds them is fundamental to successful lawyering.
