Real Estate Law' is the body of regulations and legal codes which pertain to such matters under a particular jurisdiction and include things such as commercial and residential property ownership, development and transactions. Real estate is often considered synonymous with real property (sometimes called realty).

The oldest document using a term recognizable as 'real estate' in historical records is dated 1605.introduced into England over 500 years earlier, by William the Conqueror in 1066.

the reason for several possible meanings of 'real' in relation to 'real estate' may have been that not all of England and Wales became 'real estate' in the 'royal' sense by reason only of the Norman Conquest. The Domesday Book provides evidence that some holdings of land in England and Wales remained in the hands of people, who were not the king.the English 'law of real estate' became the official real estate law of England and Wales.

English Real Estate Law recognises rights way, etc., on land beyond the limits of the subject land, including rights of passage and repassage over other lands.Though frequently used in official documents, such as property deeds and court records in England for many centuries in common law, the first statutory law of highways was the Highways Act 1555 by Elizabeth I of England, the second daughter of Henry VIII.

The real estate businesses in Mexico,Canada,Guam and Central America are different from the way that they are conducted in the United States.One important difference from the United States is that each country has rules regarding where foreigners can buy.

Competency. Rule 4-1.1 provides: “A lawyer shall provide competent representation to a Client. Competent representation requires the legal knowledge, skill, thoroughness, and preparation reasonably necessary for the representation.”
Dealing with most problems faced by practicing attorneys requires a diverse knowledge of several areas of law. Many of these problems require specialized knowledge that is not necessarily available to every lawyer admitted to the Florida Bar. Before a lawyer becomes involved in a new type of transaction, the lawyer should be certain that he or she has the knowledge and skill in this area necessary to provide his client with adequate representation. This does not mean that a lawyer must be experienced before representing such a client. According to the official comment to this rule, “A lawyer can provide adequate representation in a wholly novel field through necessary study. Competent representation can also be provided through the association of a lawyer of established competence in the field in question.”
