Default Property Law

Property Law - Property law is the law that governs the various forms of ownership in real property and in personal property.
Real Estate Law - Real estate refers to something permanently fixed to the land such as a building. Real estate is synonymous of real property and sometimes called realty.
Property law is the area of law that governs the various forms of ownership in real property (land as distinct from personal or movable possessions) and in personal property, within the common law legal system. In the civil law system, there is a division between movable and immovable property. Movable property roughly corresponds to personal property, while immovable property corresponds to real estate or real property, and the associated rights and obligations thereon.

The Real Estate and Property practice includes Construction Law, Eminent Domain, Foreclosure, Homeowners Association, Land Use & Zoning, Landlord and Tenant Law, Property Law, and Property Management.

Foreclosure is the legal proceedings in which a property that is collateral or security for a loan may be sold to help repay the loan when the loan is in default. When a homeowner is unable to make principal and/or interest payments on his or her mortgage, the creditor can seize and sell the property at a public auction.

Foreclosure is part of the Real Estate practice, which also includes Construction Law, Eminent Domain, Foreclosure , Homeowners Association, Land Use & Zoning, Landlord and Tenant Law, Property Law, and Property Management.

Landlord and Tenant Law regulates the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants and empowers applications such as seeking extension of a lease or some other action or dispute concerning tenancy.

Understanding Real Estate Tax-Deferred Exchanges
Understanding Real Estate Tax-Deferred Exchanges
Much has been written over the years to explain tax deferred exchanges, however, it has been my experience that most explanations are lengthy and much too technical. Being a well known real estate attorney with an emphasis in tax deferred exchanges, as well as an author on this subject, it has been brought to my attention that a simple to read guide explaining tax-deferred exchanges has been in high demand for quite a long time. I hope this guide will be useful to you.

Default Re: Property Law

Dear sir, please suggest me what can I do in case of following situation:
Sir, we cousins mutually arrived to common understanding to change boundaries of our ancestral property (agricultural land). Accordingly we signed on a agreement. Now my cousins wants to sell their portion of land. I am not interested to sell. They are forcing me. I said no. They are threatening me to again change land boundaries deceitfully so that my portion of land should not have a pathway and it will not have a road face.
If they change boundaries on their own and sell, my portion of land will become inaccessible to road face i.e. my portion of land will not has the pathway. What shall I do. Please mail to or phone to 9110569186, 9603083968, 9493243968.
Thanking you. Your sincerely
