Real property law, also called land law, is a specialized kind of law that concerns real estate, land use and property. Real property differs from private property in that private property refers to anything that can be moved (vehicles, furniture, possessions, etc.) while real property concerns land itself and anything immovable on it (homes, development, minerals in the land, etc.).
You may need an attorney specializing in real property law if you have a complicated land dispute, have received a codes violation, want to pursue a permit or license for your property, or are interested in establishing new property rights or enforcing well-established rights.
