About Real Estate Law
Real estate is a legal term that includes your land (i.e., a lot) along with anything that is built on and upon your land (i.e., a home, a building). Real estate law is the body of law and rules (including zoning laws and restrictive covenants) regulating your title, ownership and use of real estate.
While most individuals use the term real estate, this is a term of art used in common law states. Louisiana is a civil law state, and the proper legal term for real estate is immovable property.
In addition to this difference, there are many other differences in laws and concepts between the other states and Louisiana. Therefore, it is advisable that you seek the advice of a Louisiana real estate attorney when you seek to buy or lease immovable property (real estate) in Louisiana.
