Common Real Estate Law Issues in Tucson

Financing: Most individuals are unable to make major real estate purchases in Tucson with cash, because few people have that kind of money on hand. Thus, to buy real estate, most entities use a mortgage. This is a loan used to buy a piece of property. When the loan is issued, and the property purchased, the lender holds a security interest in the property until the loan is paid off, with interest.

Zoning: Zoning laws dictate what types of buildings can go on given pieces of property. These laws are generally designed to ensure that residential areas are as clean and as quiet as possible, thereby preserving property values. They accomplish this by ensuring that other uses that might be inappropriate in a residential area, such as heavy industry, are in different parts of town. This also ensures that industries will be able to go about their business without constant complaints from their neighbors.

Duty of Disclosure: Sellers of homes are bound by a legal duty to disclose defects in the home to prospective buyers, before they buy the house. Any defect which the seller knows (or reasonably should know) about, and which cannot be discovered by the buyer through an average inspection, must be disclosed to the buyer.

Implied Warranties: In Tucson, every residential lease agreement, whether it's explicitly stated or not, has an "implied warranty of habitability." This is a legally-imposed promise by the landlord that the rented dwelling (whether it's a house or apartment) is fit for habitation by humans. While there are many requirements for a place to be considered habitable, some of the most important ones are electricity, running water, heating, and protection from the elements.

Life in Tucson

Tucson is a major city in Arizona and the county seat of Pima County.  With a population of about 548,000, it is the second largest city in Arizona after Phoenix.  Tucson is just over 100 miles from Phoenix and about an hour away from the U.S.-Mexico Border.

Often called "The Old Pueblo", Tucson is an attractive mix of traditional southwestern culture and modern innovations.  The downtown area of Tucson has retained much of its historic southwest feel.  Several downtown buildings such as the Hotel Congress and the Art Deco Fox Theater were constructed in the 1920's.  Midtown Tucson also draws many visitors to the city.  For example, the University of Arizona is located in midtown, which includes Arizona Stadium as well as the McKale Center. 

The tourism industry fuels much of Tucson's economy, with some 3.5 million visitors bringing in over $2 billion a year.  Tucson's warm climate attracts many "snowbirds", or winter visitors who often purchase a second home in the city.  Popular events for tourists include the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show and the Tucson Folk Festival.

Lawyers in Tucson, Arizona handle most of their cases at the Tucson City Court.  Tucson lawyers are available to help you understand the many laws that are unique to the state of Arizona.
