To offer our clients complete legal advice and certainty in real estate transactions, we have a team specialized in this area, which closely follows the applicable legislation. We provide full legal service, from real estate due diligence to monitoring the respective records necessary for implementing the project.
Our expertise has been built over the years by working with companies in the segment of land subdivisions, developers, contractors (including built-to-suit projects), domestic and foreign investors, and family groups investing in real estate.
We advise national and foreign individuals and legal entities on the purchase and/or sale of residential, commercial, and rural properties and the obtainment and/or analysis of transaction-related documents for risk assessment (due diligence). We assist in checking real estate in companies and regularizing their real estate registration (including updating and issuing payment forms or requesting municipal governments for exemption of Real Estate Conveyance Tax (ITBI) related to such real properties). We negotiate and prepare documents related to real estate transactions, such as commitments, purchase agreements, exchanges, giving in payment, loans for use, constitution of mortgages, secured fiduciary sales, leases, built-to-suit, condos, subdivisions, shopping malls, distribution centers, and factories/industries, among others.
We also advise rural real estate transactions, such as partnership contracts and lease-purchase agreements. We are present in the litigation, in the defense, and in the filing of actions, whether in the administrative and judicial spheres, involving the protection of property, criminal trespass, construction/development, condominium, expropriation, actions to renew leases, review rents, evict tenants, and regarding adverse possession, etc. We work in the constitution of Real Estate Investment Funds (REITS) and legal advice in obtaining operating licenses, Fire Department Inspection Reports (AVCB), authorizations, certificates of occupancy, and any other documents required by public agencies (including Municipal Governments, State Treasury Departments, the Environmental Company of the State of São Paulo (CETESB), the Brazilian Institute for Colonization and Agrarian Reform (INCRA), the Federal Police of Brazil, etc.), to regulate the operations to be developed and implemented by the owner of the property.
