Understanding The Scope Of Property Law

Property law is a broad and multifaceted area of law, subject to governance under state and federal statutes and common law. Engaging an attorney can be critical to understanding the full scope of real estate transactions, which frequently intersects with contract law.

Many people refer to “real property” and “real estate” as one and the same. The truth of the matter is that there are significant nuances between the two terms. Most people think of the land and structures on the land when they think of “real estate.” However, real estate law encompasses material elements and rights interests, such as:

  • Ownership of land and trees
  • Boundary lines
  • Mineral and oil rights
  • Permanent structures
  • Easements
  • Covenants
  • Protection under eminent domain takings

At Duncan, Holland & Fleenor, P.C., we assist our clients when disputes arise about easements, location of the boundary line, eminent domain, properties chain of title or quiet title, construction defects and more.

Rights And Interests In Real Property

Our lawyers will help you understand how the rights and interests linked to your property are held. Depending on the nature of the title, property ownership includes a range of entitlements. For example:

  • Property rights can grant individuals the ability to reside on the land for set periods
  • Extraction of minerals, gas or oil from beneath the surface
  • Secure permanent ownership of the property
  • Ability to sell, lease or partition the land

Our law firm stands ready to assist you, whichever side of the dispute you find yourself.
