Real Estate Law covers everything related to the sale, purchase, transfer, or ownership of land. The simplest type of real estate matter is a purchase agreement or drafting a deed. These are normally very straightforward documents that can be drafted without too many revisions.
However, some purchase agreements can be quite complicated and go through multiple versions until they reflect the agreement of the parties. The most complicated purchase agreements are normally between family or friends because they want this thing or that concession to make up for something that has nothing to do with the property being purchased.
Real estate law, on the other hand, can represent very complicated and potentially very expensive litigation on environmental issues. Matters can involve the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the classification/reclassification of property including wetland designations, which can inhibit land usage or require expensive remediation operations. Mediation with the proper government agencies is required by legal professionals.
