Real Estate Law Defined

Real estate law is a legal area comprising land as well as those things that are attached to the land, such as houses, buildings, minerals, and foliage. The interests, benefits, and rights also fall under the umbrella of real estate, including drilling rights below the land and air rights above it.

If you are dealing with an issue regarding real estate law, it’s important to know your rights. Real estate law is an extensive legal area so it’s best to get the advice of a Schaumburg, IL, attorney who has experience in this area. Whether you need legal representation for commercial or real estate transactions, Robert M. Kaplan has the experience you need to ensure your interests are protected.

To What Does Real Estate Law Pertain?

Some of the most common reasons people need the services of an experienced real estate attorney include residential and commercial transactions such as foreclosures and short sales.

Foreclosure. The threat of foreclosure is frightening for homeowners, but if you cannot afford your mortgage payments, having legal representation in your corner can make all the difference. We work with homeowners and lenders in an effort to ensure our clients can stay in their homes.

Short sales. If you are struggling to make your mortgage payments and you owe more money on the house than it is worth, a short sale might be the answer. We work with homeowners and lenders to enable you to sell the home so you can stay out of foreclosure.

  • Real estate law also includes the following areas:
  • Rights and interests in real estate and real property
  • Sales, purchases, and transfers of real estate and real property
  • Rental property and landlord issues
  • Rights of tenants and homeowners
  • Property development and zoning
