Real Estate Law

Real Estate or Real Property is defined as a parcel of land and anything growing on it, permanently attached to it, built on it, or any minerals or natural resources underneath the land. This does not include anything that can be taken apart and easily removed without damage to the land. That is considered personal property. Corporeal real or personal property is anything tangible that has substance and is visible on the land such as dwelling structure, building, fence, driveway, walkway, plants, etc. incorporeal property is the legal right to use real property as established without the right of possession such as easements. An easement grants the right to use a portion of someone else’s property for right-of-way or access to another property or public land. An example of an easement is a driveway that grants property owners or tenants access to the road or a property that borders public land and people have to cross a portion of the property to access a park or beach. This does not mean that the public has unfettered right of entry into the property but they can use the portion of the property established as an easement.
