Commercial Real Estate Attorneys in Santa Clarita

Property is a big deal.

Whether you’re developing a large-scale project, renting a commercial space, or selling your home, real estate is an essential part of everyday life – and it’s likely one of your most complex and important assets, too.

What does Real Estate Law mean?

Real estate law refers to real property, and the distinct set of laws that govern how real property can be used, sold, and acquired. Homes, commercial property, storefronts are all governed by real estate law.

Real estate law includes all of the following – and that’s just the beginning:

  • Zoning
  • Real Estate taxes
  • Estate Planning
  • Deeds and titles
  • Financing
  • Leases and tenancy
  • HOAs and HOA boards
  • Real Estate investment

Real Estate LAW IN CALIFORNIA

Primarily, real estate law refers to state or local laws with only a few applicable federal laws. In California, we have a specific set of regulations governing housing, zoning, planning, tenancy, and the like. It’s important to stay up to date, as these laws are updated on a regular basis.

For example, new real estate laws in 2020 included:

  • Sale of a home requires using an escrow agent in order to facilitate the sale.
  • A transfer tax is imposed by the county – and possibly also by the city – whenever a property is sold. The details vary by county and region.
  • Buyers have the right to sue for fraudulent misrepresentation if a seller conceals a known defect.
  • Potential buyers must have access to any information about lead paint on the property.
