Real Estate Transactions

High risk, frequent amendments to regulations and more specialised contract practices may complicate property transactions and present challenges for property and real estate actors. We assist real estate investors, as well as commercial and private parties with practical and appropriate advice throughout the transaction to help them achieve their commercial goals. Our expertise in property transactions include the purchase, sale and lease of real estate.

Brækhus emphasises professional, commercial and practical guidance tailored to each business. We have expert knowledge of the property industry, and our lawyers have in-depth knowledge of standard agreements for both commercial and residential properties, as well as the regulations for the sale of real estate.

We have expertise in the transfer of property with development potential and can tailor these agreements to fit each case.

Property transactions often require interdisciplinary involvement. Our property lawyers maintain a seamless collaboration with adjacent legal areas, such as taxes and duties, and inheritance and family law. This ensures that our clients always receive the best expertise in the various legal areas.
