A property lawyer is an expert in his field and specifically serves property law. This means that registration and property transfer is part of what they do. A large part of their duties are owed to property transfer and registration. However, not limited to. They serve other areas too. For instance, some documents related to property, by law, need to be drafted by a property lawyer. Unless you work in a field directly related to property, you will not often cross paths with a property lawyer. Most commonly, people will only have dealings with a property lawyer when buying or selling property, or in the event of death, where property forms part of a deceased estate. In the event of death, the property lawyer will need to be utilised to handle the property’s transfer to its beneficiaries. Where it is expressed in a last will and testament, a property lawyer will need to handle the sale of the property and make sure the funds are rightly distributed to make sure any request within the last will and testament is adhered to.
