Many Ohio residents will be involved in some type of real estate transaction in their lives. From signing a lease for an apartment or commercial space, to purchasing your first home or addressing an eminent domain claim on your land, there is no shortage of different ways in which real estate law matters can impact a person’s life. When these issues arise, the details are crucial.
Like some other areas of the law, real estate law is an area in which one minor misstep could make a whole deal come close to falling through. For example, in almost every real estate transaction there are contracts and other paperwork that must be accurately drafted and executed for the transaction to be completed successfully. If there are mistakes in those documents, time – and money – can be lost in re-drafting or correcting documents. Getting it right the first time is of paramount importance.
Or, in eminent domain matters, for example, it is important to understand exactly what the government or public entity wants from the land you own. Is it just a temporary easement? Or perhaps a permanent easement? In some cases, a public entity may actually need to take over ownership of a portion or all your land. Knowing what is at stake, and the value you should get, could make the difference of hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
