Real Estate Law
Real estate law
Stakes are usually high in corporate real estate transactions. Taking legal advice before, during and after such a transaction can be crucial for the success and peace of mind. GMW Advocaten represents investors, housing corporations, project developers and local administrative bodies in cases involving selling, buying or disputing real estate.
Buying or selling real estate is a routine exercise, yet it can be fraught with misunderstandings. Factual or legal faults, easements, warranty, oversize and undersize, broken off negotiations and more can cause disputes which will affect the transaction, possibly even bringing it to a halt.
Real estate changes ownership on the basis of a sales contract. Ideally, such a sales contract contains all clauses and agreements concerning the purchase and delivery; sadly the every day practice often differs. The lawyers at GMW Advocaten are well aware of all the traps and uncertainties that might occur during such a transaction.
Sadly, rights sometimes have to be asserted by bringing matters into court. Our real estate lawyers will promptly act on your behalf in those cases where immediate action is required. You might have to start interlocutory proceedings for the seizing of assets in case the seller does not cooperate in the delivery of the real estate.
The role of the real estate agent
Our lawyers have an in-depth knowledge of all the ins and outs concerning the role of the real estate agent. Real estate agents confronted with issues such as the withdrawal of an assignment or being held liable by their client are well advised to seek the advice of a specialist in the field, the sooner the better. After an overall evaluation of the situation our specialists will advise you on the next steps to take, always aiming to keep possible legal procedures as short as possible.
