The law of Real Estate has its origins in the development of the English Common Law. The common law itself composes a body of law formed by court decisions over the years. Many of the terms and concepts contained in the law of Real Estate arose in this manner. With the exception of Louisiana, whose laws are derived from the French Civil Code, the individual states still rely heavily upon the common law for their laws on real estate. Over the years, the states have enacted statutes regarding real estate. These statutes sometimes codify the common law, modify, and at times abrogate it. Even today, however, when a state’s statutes are silent on an issue of law regarding real estate, the courts will turn to the common law for an answer.
