Real Estate / Housing

If you are a renter, a home buyer, a homeowner, a home seller, a renter, or simply someone who is using or living on a piece of property, then you most likely have legal rights to protect, which is where a real estate attorney comes in.

By way of example, if you are a renter, then you have the right not to be discriminated against when applying to rent a property, and, once you move in, you have rights to the quiet use and enjoyment of your home, that it be maintained in a safe and habitable condition, and that your landlord account for your security deposit and honor the terms of your lease. Depending on where you live, as a renter you might also be protected from rent increases by rent control laws, and you might have the right to remain in your home subject to certain notice and buy-out conditions if the landlord wants to evict you, re-rent, or sell the property. Though you don’t own the property, you would still want to consult a real estate attorney in these cases.

Housing and real estate laws vary from state to state and municipality to municipality, and an experienced housing or real estate lawyer will help you understand your rights, make a plan, will negotiate for you, or even appear in court on your behalf if needed. A housing or real estate attorney near you will understand your local housing market, the laws and customs that govern what you can expect, and can help you navigate landlord-tenant issues, rent control, property taxes, residential and commercial real estate, evictions, foreclosures, and more.
