California Property and Real Estate Laws
State property and real estate laws often include things like "homestead" protection from creditors, which help small landowners keep their farm or home in times of economic stress; regulations protecting both tenants and landlords; and adverse possession, which rewards individuals who substantially improve property they do not own. In California, for example, an individual who is either disabled or over 65 may claim homestead protection on property worth up to $150,000. California also has property and real estate laws that provide incentives for energy-efficient and otherwise environmentally friendly buildings.
