Real estate law involves the transfer of interests and perfection of titles in real estate. It includes transfer documents such as contracts for purchase and sale, deeds, options, leases, easements and rights of refusal. It also includes encumbrances such as mortgages and mechanics’ liens, and their foreclosure. Real estate lawyers issue opinions of title to real estate after examining abstracts of title records, and title companies issue insurance on real estate titles. Real estate lawyers also assist property owners in correcting title defects and resolving property disputes.
