Real estate development is an integral part of the economy and pushes the growth of jobs and housing for communities. Just dealing with bricks and mortar, but also headaches and paperwork due to the scope of work that needs to be done before a project gets completed. On the development side, it can feel like the bureaucracy surrounding a project can develop quicker than the site does. Real estate development does not only involve the construction of the site itself. Legal affairs concerning property law and commercial law must also be considered to avoid any financial loss or consequential issues.
