We regularly assist developers, investors, financiers and other key stakeholders to structure, acquire, develop, finance, utilise and implement a wide range of real estate projects in Romania and manage their investments and operations locally in order to achieve their objectives.
Our proactive and business-oriented lawyers have in-depth knowledge of all real estate matters – from construction and development, planning, zoning and environment, agricultural and forestry regulations, leasing and property management, restitution claims and concessions to real estate M&A and financings.
Our lawyers have been involved in many high profile real estate transactions, in relation to various types of land, retail centres and shopping malls, office and residential buildings, industrial and logistic parks, agricultural and animal farms. The typical work we do consists of:
- due diligence exercises and legal memoranda on all real estate regulatory aspects – including title due diligence and insurance, permitting process, identifying solutions to overcome deadlock situations, as well as daily management of contracts and operations (e.g. condominium rules, preparation of the internal regulation of buildings); and
- drafting and negotiation of acquisition contracts (asset or shares sale purchase agreements and related documentation – e.g. shareholders agreements), lease arrangements (including drafting of templates) and construction agreements (e.g. FIDIC contracts) as well as financing documentation (including LMA style facility agreement and security packages).
