Real estate or real property is land and the buildings on it. Real estate law governs who may own and use the land. This includes Estate Planning and Landlord Tenant Law.
Estate planning can allow land to be passed between family members. Over the years, the attorneys at Crawford Glankler, LLC has helped many people plan for their family’s future.
Real estate is either residential or commercial according to local zoning laws. When land is bought or sold, there are many local laws that ensure real estate transactions are performed and recorded properly. One person or a group of people may own real estate and it may be used by others through rental arrangements.
Landlords and Tenants both have a wide range of rights. Tenants have the right to be free of all forms of discrimination. They have a right to a habitable home, free of lead poisoning, and with a certain degree of privacy.
Landlords have the right to protect their investment. This can be achieved by requiring a monthly rent payment as well as the payment of specific utilities, provided it is outlined in their lease agreement. Landlords also have the right to evict tenants, if they can show cause such as nonpayment of rent.
Let the law offices of Crawford Glankler, LLC help you navigate through all the state and local governments rules, so you can be confident with all your real estate decisions.
