Laws Regarding Real Estate

The basic concept of land, buildings, and their use can involve many areas of law. Because of this and the significant value of real estate to individuals and groups, it is subject to a wide variety of laws. These include state, federal, and common law. Navigating these areas can be challenging without knowledgeable legal guidance.

The purchase and sale of real property is governed by Maryland and local law to ensure that these transactions are handled and recorded in a safe and proper manner. State and local governments also provide additional constraints and rules as to how land can be developed and used and protected from environmental damage.

Our firm can ensure that your real estate transaction or matter is handled in such a way that is legal, binding, and in your best interests. For example, we can review or draft documents, conduct title searches, provide oversight on escrows, provide legal guidance in selling your home without an agent, and resolve various disputes through negotiated settlements or litigation. These are just a few of the legal services we offer.

Your land, home, apartment complex, and/or commercial property are likely the most valuable assets you own. As such, safeguarding your investment in these is of the highest priority. Whether selling, buying, renting, developing, or otherwise using real property, our firm is committed to seeing that you are protected. We urge you to take advantage of our extensive real estate experience and dedication to maintaining a stable and reputable legal presence in our community.
