Transactions with and management of real estate

Real estate transactions must be concluded in strict compliance with the law. Such transactions have specific features, therefore it is important to pay close attention to all details and nuances.

Where property unit’s or counterparty’s ‘cleanliness’ has not been thoroughly checked or the agreement contains any inaccuracies, there is a risk that such a transaction might be later declared void, or additional/unplanned expenses/losses might arise.
 
The main goal of property management is to earn maximum income from using the asset, manage its value and increase investment appeal. To attain these goals, one must create a gainful contract structure.

REVERA’s team is ready to render legal assistance in the following matters: 
 

  • legal due diligence for a property unit; 
  • check of counterparty;
  • analysis of transaction’s tax considerations;
  • structuring the transaction;
  • preparing and monitoring execution and performance of alienation agreements;
  • preparing all required documents;
  • participation in negotiations at each stage;
  • formalisation in state authorities.
