Real Estate

Real estate transactions are the largest and most consequential purchases most people will ever make. The purchase or sale of a home or business property has the power to “make or break” a person’s financial well-being. Buying and selling real estate is more complex than other types of commercial transactions, such as buying or selling a car. State statutes, federal statutes, and common law all may have a bearing on complex matters involving real property, such as ownership claims, liens, taxation, possession, and boundary issues.
