Every piece of land/building is unique in the eyes of the law. You can't replace or substitute a piece of real estate. Therefore there is a legal remedy unique to real estate called “specific performance”. For example, if a seller breaches a contract to sell a piece of land, the buyer can seek specific performance instead of monetary compensation. If successful the court may force the seller to sell the land to the buyer. This is a powerful remedy for a real estate litigation attorney.
