Real Estate Law FAQs

Real Property refers to the land, and any buildings or structures affixed to it, that add value to a property. Real estate law generally refers to the legalities of buying and selling land but can also include a myriad of related activities. For example, lease management, residential and commercial development, investment, lending and security, joint ventures, planning permission and regulatory matters.

There are two main categories of real estate: residential and commercial. Residential real estate refers to land and buildings used as homes, while commercial real estate refers to land and buildings used by businesses.

Commercial property includes properties such as office spaces, hotels, restaurants, shopping centres, and healthcare services. Businesses can own the buildings they occupy, but they typically tend to lease them.

At Primas Law, our team of real estate experts have vast experience and knowledge in all areas of real estate law and practice.

Put simply, real estate solicitors are involved with the transactional side of deals and provide a solution to your real estate related problems. This may include shaping the terms of a deal, negotiating the contract documents and all other real estate related documents that flow from the same. 

Real estate lawyers also conduct investigations on your behalf, explaining any perceived risks, and attend to the practical matters, such as registration at the Land Registry.

You’re not legally required to use a real estate lawyer when buying or selling property, but the rules and regulations are tricky to navigate without expert guidance.  It is always a good idea to obtain clear and correct expert advice when making decisions which have a financial risk. Real estate solicitors handle all the complicated matters and protect your interests.
