Residential Real Estate

The oldest form of real estate has a history marked by frequent changes and strong political influence and, in particular in recent years, has become the focus of investors who traditionally have been more inclined to focus on commercial real estate.

We offer expertise in traditional residential real estate, from stand-alone buildings protected as historical monuments to the conversion of large areas into small urban developments, including the special rules of the German Residential Ownership Code (WEG), to the purchase and sale of major portfolios.

We are intricately familiar with the sometimes complex administrative law issues arising in connection with the construction, revitalization or acquisition of residential real estate, e.g., optimal use of approved plan parameters, zoning law management of residential real estate in consideration of concerns (including emission control concerns) of adjacent property owners, and the execution of zoning, development and other agreements under public law.
