Real estate transactions involve a wide variety of legal issues. Even with respect to transactions involving actual real estate, key issues differ between transactions involving vacant land and transactions involving land with a building. Transactions involving new buildings and transactions involving used buildings are completely different. Notable legal issues also vary depending on the features of each type of building, such as a single family house, housing complex, condominium and commercial building.
Moreover, real estate transactions today are not limited to real estate itself, but also include the sale of trust beneficiary interests. It may not be an overstatement to say that it is not appropriate to categorize this practice area simply as involving a kind of real estate transaction.
