Real estate and construction

In recent years, the real estate and construction sectors have seen significant growth. Also, due to the policy of cheap money, the sale and construction of real estate has slowly begun to catch up with pre-crisis levels. Clients need a lawyer who can run a meticulous legal due diligence of the property, propose the best way for its sale or buy, advise on obtaining the necessary building / occupation permits and draw up project financing documents. 

Real estate and construction are important areas of focus for SEMANČÍN & PARTNERS.
