Foreign Real Estate

Ohio has a unique statute for dealing with property the foreign real estate statute. While it might sound like it applies to purchases outside of the US, it actually means any interest purchased outside of Ohio itself. This is valuable for timeshares because often the place where the timeshare is purchased is not the place where the timeshare is located. People in Ohio could purchase a sunny timeshare in Florida, or Hawaii and in these instances, it would fall under the foreign real estate statute, which often means Ohio law is going to govern that purchase.
