For many people, buying and selling a home or other property represents the largest investment they make in a lifetime. Whether you are buying land, a house, a condominium, or commercial property, state and federal laws govern your transaction. With frequent changes in laws and statutes, particularly regarding ownership and taxation, an experienced real estate attorney is essential to protect your best interests and cover all the technicalities to help you avoid costly mistakes and possible future legal disputes.
