The German real estate market is the country’s second largest market in terms of sales after the manufacturing industry. Investments in real estate are the most important form of investment in this country for companies and private investors alike.
JUR | URBAN advises and supports its clients in the purchase and sale, preservation, protection and utilization of real estate assets.
WHAT IS REAL ESTATE LAW AND REAL ESTATE BUSINESS LAW?
A wide range of legal fields are relevant in the provision of advice on all aspects of real estate. The advice essentially comprises civil law on sales, tenancy law, land law and property law as well as condominium law and public law on building planning and building regulations.
If tenants, landlords and owners are a company, a married couple or a community of heirs, clients must also be advised on company law, family law and law of succession.
In order to be able to cover this broad spectrum of competencies, the lawyers at JUR | URBAN regularly attend specialist lawyer courses and seminars and cooperate in individual mandates for specialist lawyers in family law and inheritance law. Our experts also have access to a broad network of real estate developers, architects, investors, asset managers and other players in the industry, giving them a 360-degree view of the industry and the market.
