What is a Valid Real Estate Contract?

A legally binding contract must contain several elements for it to hold up in court. The law requires most real estate contracts to be written. In some circumstances, an oral contract may be legal. A valid real estate contract will show evidence of an offer which is being accepted between two or more parties who show adequate capacity for making the transaction. The real estate contract must also clearly define the consideration, which details the exchange of items of value such as money and property.

A real estate contract is only valid when it is made between parties who are legally competent and of sound mind. Minors and individuals who are under the influence do not have the capacity for entering into real estate contracts in California. It is legal for a real estate contract to contain an expiration date.

What Should be included in a Construction Contract?

A construction contract covers the details of any type of construction project.  The following questions should be answered within a construction contract: Which parties are involved? What is the scope of service each party is providing? Is any part of the service under warranty? What costs are involved and for which items? That is the timeframe for each part of the project, if possible? Is limitation of liability and insurance coverage addressed? How are licenses and permits being handled? How are change of proposals handled? How, when, and from whom is payment received? An experienced real estate law attorney can draft, review, and negotiate the construction contract to ensure your interests are protected.

Do You have to Allow Others to Access to Your Property?

There are certain situations in which a property owner must allow others to access their privately-owned property. In the event both parties do not agree on the terms of use, this easement or boundary dispute may need to be determined through legal action. An easement can be created when a right-of way is necessary or when a portion of the property has been continually used for over five years. If a property owner attempts to block access, the encroacher may pursue legal action which may require litigation. A real estate attorney can assist you in determining the appropriate course of action when you are assessing the way your property is used by others.

What is the Right to Eminent Domain?

Eminent domain in California refers to the process of a state or federal governmental agency taking private property which is to be used by the public.  When municipalities expand or designate certain properties for economic redevelopment, it is not uncommon for older homes or businesses to be taken. The government must pay for these properties, and there is a prescribed set of legal notices and requirements which must first be met.  Most likely, the property will first be identified by the government and “condemned.” A property owner can seek fair compensation when their property is involved in this process. To protect your rights and ensure you receive appropriate compensation for your property, it is critical to consult with an experienced real estate attorney.

What are Zoning Laws?

A zoning law identifies the manner in which a certain property can accommodate activities. Residential zoning laws specify which type and number of housing units a property is allowed. Commercial zoning laws regulate business activities within a geographic area. These laws commonly limit the number of similar businesses within an area. Industrial zoning laws identify which type establishments are allowed. Industrial zoning laws generally deal with manufacturing and storage facilities, airports, processing plants, warehouses and other industrial operations. Before purchasing a property, it is critical to learn about local zoning laws.
