Real Estate Transactions
When a buyer purchases real estate from a seller, and a deed is transferred, it is called a real estate transaction. Real estate transactions are governed by federal statutes, but vary by state. Maryland state statutes and common laws cover legal issues pertaining to the financing, leasing, and selling of real estate properties.
Real Estate Deeds
A deed is a legal document that transfers the ownership of property from the seller to the buyer. A real estate transaction is not considered complete until the buyer receives the deed to the property they are purchasing. A finished deed includes the names of the buyer(s) and seller(s), a description of the property being sold, and the signatures of the buyer(s) and seller(s). Deeds must always be in writing and follow the criteria set forth by Maryland real estate statutes.
