Besides governing the buying, selling, renting, and development of real property, real estate law also entails property taxes, estate planning, deed and lease agreements, zoning, etc. Real estate laws will usually vary with the state and local government. These Laws will usually cover how the land can be utilized, depending on how it’s zoned.
