Real Estate is also known as immovable property. One needs to follow and understand Real Estate Law before actually planning to begin construction on their immovable property. Some of the important laws to be followed are:


  • Zoning – If your property comes under the NO zoning area, it means that you will not be able to construct any concrete building in the area. An example of zoning land is agricultural land.
  • Environmental Hazards – You will have to check for environmental hazards before actually beginning to construct your project. For e.g. you cannot build a petrol station near to a paint factory since both are highly inflammable.
  • Public Assessment – Whenever a property is constructed, it is mandatory that a portion of the property is left for public assessment and their use.


Above mentioned are some of the main real estate laws of any country. There are many other laws which need to be followed before actually planning to construct on your property.
