Real Estate Law - An Overview

There are state and federal laws that regulate the sale, purchase, development, leasing, and tenancy of different kinds of buildings and pieces of land. These laws encompass everything from ownership to related concerns such as financing,  construction, taxes, and environmental policies.

As a Kentucky real estate lawyer with more than 20 years of experience, Bruce Orwin represents Kentucky homeowners (and potential homeowners) in all kinds of real estate transactions.



Homeowners who wish to sell a house or property can employ a real estate broker or an agent, who in turn solicits potential buyers. If the seller and the broker sign a listing agreement, the broker is obligated to find a buyer. If the property sells, the sellers pays the broker's commission.

Real estate brokers are generally subject to the licensing standards established by the State of Kentucky.

Glossary of Real Estate Topics

Real estate law involves quite a bit of legalese that can be confusing for first-time homebuyers. If you would like to purchase or sell real estate, an experienced real estate attorney will explain the terms, obligations, and benefits of a potential transaction to you, and will represent you at the closing.


A deed symbolizes ownership of a property. It includes the names of the buyer and seller and the property's legal description.

Home Inspections

When you're interested in purchasing a house, you may wonder if it has hidden problems or flaws that will either cost thousands to fix or negatively affect the value of the home after you've purchased it. Instead of worrying, you can obtain a home inspection in which an independent party evaluates the house for potential problems.

What to Expect at Closing

A real estate closing is the meeting in which the seller officially transfers ownership of the property to the buyer. The buyer and the seller, their attorneys, both real agents (or brokers), the lender's representative, and the closing agent typically attend.
