Civil Litigation

The Law Office of Jerome A. Clay specializes in real estate and real property law, which directly and indirectly impacts landlords, homebuyers, home sellers, renters and anyone who is using real property.  We understand that there are a wide variety of real estate statues on the federal and state level. However, federal real estate laws may take precedence over local real estate laws.

There are many areas that real estate law covers such as:

  • Landlord and tenant law: Real property laws also govern the rules around leasing apartments and tenants. Tenant agreements and forms, eviction rules, and whether or not a property is considered inhabitable are all issues governed by real estate laws.
  • Foreclosure: Real estate laws determine how foreclosures should be processed. The entire process of foreclosure is impacted by various federal real estate laws and includes financial and administrative details.
  • Land use laws: Determines how property and land use  is governed by local ordinances and land use destination. For instance: how property is delegated as: as residential, commercial, or industrial? Or the steps to rezone land use. Our law offices can help determine the steps necessary in order to ensure your projects abide by local and or state law.
  • Construction: Where can construction take place and what kind of buildings can be built is determined by real estate law. Real estate law also determines the building codes that new construction must meet. When building and construction codes are violated, real estate law governs how violators are punished.
  • Financing: Real estate laws govern mortgages given to buyers of both commercial and residential real property.
  • Title and boundary disputes: Property law governs disputes about who owns a property and the boundaries of that property. These types of disputes or code violations can be quite common and can impact not only the housing association but the community as well.
  • Property taxes: Real property law governs how much a homeowner pays in local property taxes.
