Real estate matters in Georgia are often more complex than they first appear. Maybe you have already experienced this firsthand after embarking on a new land purchase, or are worried about signing a land use agreement. There are many different factors that go into creating a real estate agreement, and overlooking even a seemingly minor matter can lead to unintended consequences.

When is it considered a real estate matter?

Since real estate is a rather broad term, you might only be familiar with it in terms of physical buildings or land. However, real estate also covers trees, minerals in the land and other immovable structures on property. Depending on the matter at hand, it may be especially important to make sure that these other structures are covered in the agreement. Other interests, benefits and rights that are considered part of a property include:

  • Air and water rights
  • Drilling rights
  • The right to quietly enjoy a property
  • The right to live on a property for a specific period of time
  • The right to acquire a property in the future

What if it is a business matter?

As a business owner, you already know just how important it is to get the details right. Managing the details of real estate matters involving your business is essential. Common real estate matters you might encounter as a business owner include:

  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Land use or zoning variances
  • Title registrations
  • Deeds
  • Land acquisitions
  • Eminent domain issues
  • Boundary disputes
