Real estate law: Not for you?
Real estate is​ indeed one of​ the​ safest investments and a​ lot of​ people use real estate as​ an​ investment avenue .​
Real estate law is​ not the​ forte of​ real estate attorneys and real estate agents only .​
Every real estate investor should understand at​ least the​ basics of​ real estate law .​
In fact,​ a​ short course or​ a​ concise book on​ real estate law can sometimes be of​ great help (and is​ generally sufficient for understanding the​ basics of​ real estate law) .​
What you need to​ understand is​ the​ real estate law with respect to​ the​ legal procedures that you need to​ follow for ensuring a​ smooth transfer of​ title to​ the​ property you acquire/sell and other related procedures .​
You need to​ understand the​ fee structure (e.g .​
stamp duty,​ etc) that you need to​ take care of​ as​ per real estate law .​
You can also understand the​ classification of​ properties and how the​ basic real estate law applies to​ them .​
How the​ commercial and residential properties are treated differently by the​ real estate law .​
The tax laws with respect to​ real estate are one of​ the​ things that would be of​ most interest to​ you .​
So,​ your study on​ real estate law should also cover all the​ aspects related to​ taxes .​
How mortgages are treated in​ the​ perspective of​ real estate law is​ another thing that you should know about .​
Then again,​ the​ real estate law with respect to​ tenancy should also be well understood by people who wish to​ rent out their property .​
However,​ you should not overdo that i.e .​
you should not start becoming hysterical about learning real estate law (lest you end up wasting a​ lot of​ time in​ trying to​ learn everything about real estate law and be left with no time to​ evaluate your real estate investment) .​
Leave the​ intricacies of​ real estate law with the​ real estate attorneys (and to​ some extent real estate brokers who too are taught real estate law as​ part of​ their course for obtaining broker license) .​
Understanding the​ various legal terms referred to​ in​ real estate laws can help you in​ not only enhancing your understanding of​ real estate but also help in​ making your conversations with real estate attorneys/agents really fruitful .​
You should also note that though some of​ the​ basics remain the​ same,​ the​ real estate laws vary across various states .​
Also,​ real estate laws (especially the​ tax related real estate laws) can undergo a​ change over a​ period of​ time,​ so you need to​ keep a​ tab on​ such changes .​
Any big changes will anyhow appear prominently in​ news and you will get to​ know of​ them anyhow .​
So knowing a​ little bit of​ real estate law can really be helpful (and is,​ in​ fact,​ essential).
