Real estate law is one of the most specialized areas of the legal profession. Because real estate can be complex and involve large sums of money, you may need the expertise of a real estate lawyer.
Real estate matters may come up in any of the following categories:
- Commercial real estate
- Residential real estate
- Real estate contracts
- Real estate closings
During the current economic conditions, commercial real estate requires careful handling and consideration due to high unemployment and a high inventory of empty office space. Mistakes can be costly. The assistance of a real estate attorney in drafting lease and sublease documents, for example, can be vital.
