Real Estate Law
Real Estate Law is primarily concerned with the purchase and sale of commercial and residential properties.
We strongly urge our clients to involve a qualified lawyer as early as possible in the planning and the actual buying or selling process.
For the seller, our consultation process begins before signing the listing agreement, commissioning a broker to sell, and selling the property. For the buyer, our consultation process is usually initiated before a broker is commissioned to look for a corresponding property, be it in the commercial or residential area.
In general, we do not recommend that our clients sign contracts before they have been legally verified. With timely consultation, many very costly legal problems, financial disadvantages, and long-term consequences could be avoided.
