Our extensive and long-standing experience in real estate transactions and close monitoring of legislation, case law and tax policy has shaped our professionalism to the highest degree. Our clients trust us to ensure that their real estate is properly registered in the land cadastre and that their ownership and other rights are correctly registered in the land register.
Buying and selling real estate
We advise and represent our clients at all stages of the transaction for the purchase or sale of real estate:
We advise our clients on obtaining financing or a mortgage loan and, in cooperation with the bank of their choice, we ensure that the purchase of the real estate proceeds smoothly and that the mortgages or other securities on the real estate are discharged on time. We also work with a permanent network of surveyors to ensure that the real estate is properly registered in the land cadastre and buildings cadastre.
We work with clients on all types of real estate transactions involving apartments: single or multiple dwellings; houses: detached, semi-detached or terraced; commercial premises: offices, shops, restaurants, warehouses, workshops and other business premises; industrial premises: factories, plants, production halls and other industrial premises; holiday properties: cottages, houses or apartments; building land, residential complexes: entire apartment blocks, neighbourhoods or larger residential units; agricultural land, together with occupied or unoccupied buildings; forest land; agricultural community land.
Valuable practical experience shows that the cornerstone of any real estate transaction is a thorough analysis of the status of the real estate, which not only provides the client with an insight into the actual status of the real estate, but also enables the client to predict the next steps in the sales process and assess the financial implications of the transaction. The due diligence of the real estate determines and identifies:
Power of attorney for the sale
We enable our clients to complete the transaction by means of a special power of attorney for the sale of real estate, which must be drafted in detail and contain the elements required by law. In this way, we enable our clients to complete the real estate transaction in a way that minimises their involvement in the process. Clients use this option to buy or sell real estate usually due to:
We usually carry out the sale or purchase of real estate on the basis of a special power of attorney when the real estate is co-owned, as this guarantees the successful completion of the transaction within the agreed timeframe.
The client can also grant a special power of attorney for the sale of real estate in the event of death, which means that we protect the client’s interest in the sale of the real estate to a specific person even if the party selling the real estate dies during the sale process.
Agricultural land and forests
We have extensive experience in the sale and purchase of agricultural land and forests at all stages of the process before administrative authorities and courts, including:
Land register and cadastre
The complexity of the land register proceedings requires a thorough knowledge of the relevant regulations, which we use to guide our clients through the potential risks of the real estate transfer process and to represent them in any disputes arising from the land register status.
We are aware that the consistency and accuracy of cadastral data and land register rights relating to real estate is of fundamental importance to our clients and we pay particular attention to the de facto and de iure regulation of their real estate. We advise and represent our clients in land register proceedings relating to the registration of the:
Agreement on the reconciliation of entries in the land register with facts
We also pay particular attention to clients who wish to reconcile the entries in the land register with facts. These are differences that may arise for various reasons, such as changes of ownership that have not been properly registered in the land register, land allotments, mergers of parcels, irregularities in the land register, etc. The purpose of an agreement on reconciliation of entries in the land register with facts is to resolve differences and ensure consistency between the entries in the land register and the true, fair and actual status of the real estate. Such an agreement establishes the actual situation on the ground and then makes the appropriate corrections or amendments to the cadastre and land register to ensure that the ownership and other rights over the real estate are accurately and correctly registered.
Adequate and comprehensive knowledge of the legal status of the real estate, proper negotiation, a well-drafted contract and the correct completion of all accompanying procedures and cadastral and land registrations are key to the successful completion of the sale or purchase transaction and to the protection of the client’s rights and interests. Our expertise ensures that the entire transaction leaves no room for ambiguity or potential risk.
