Our real estate practice covers the legal tasks necessary for the successful completion and closing of a real property transaction, starting from the due diligence and followed by the preparation and negotiation of complex “share deal” or “asset deal” transactions, such as sales-purchase, planning, construction, building, rental or management agreements, as the case may be, and also including legal representation before the land registry and other authorities. The Kapolyi Law Firm combines the market-leading capital markets practice with an outstanding real estate expertise in a way that is currently unparalleled in the Hungarian real estate market, which shows its benefits and added value for our clients in tax planning and advising real estate funds.
We are proud to working with well-known domestic and foreign investors, real estate developers and real estate funds. Our lawyers provide legal services in transaction, development, daily operation, rental and administrative matters for all types of real estates. We had the benefit of representing our clients from both seller and buyer sides in several high-scale real estate transactions concerning larger offices and commercial properties, industrial properties or complete real estate portfolios with multiple real estate categories mainly taking place in the Budapest real estate market.
Our areas of experience include hotel development and EPC and other planning or construction agreements, including FIDIC contracts, where our legal team achieved special expertise in drafting and negotiating such arrangements. We are cooperating with the employer/developer closely not only in the transaction, but in handling the modification and guarantee claims, or issues arising out of insurance events.
Our Firm also provides legal advice to both foreign and domestic private individuals and institutional investors regarding residential property acquisitions and projects with high value and volume.
We have successfully represented our clients in real estate financing transactions in several cases, as well as during negotiations on restructuring credit and security agreements with credit institutions.
Our working languages include Hungarian, English, German, French and Spanish.
