Loyens & Loeff

Real Estate

The real estate market is in full swing again. It is clearly on the road to recovery and real-estate transactions are increasing significantly in number. Project development is evident again too and various premises are being given a new designated use. A knowledge of the market and deals is vital in this situation.

Investors, project developers, construction companies and end users all have one thing in common: they lack the time and/or legal, notarial and tax expertise necessary to resolve many property-related issues. With your business knowledge and our specialist knowledge, we are sure that we can guide and advise you on tax and legal matters.

We specialise in assisting clients with property transactions and real estate developments involving office buildings, residential property, shops and logistics real estate. We also have the specific knowledge needed to provide you with legal and tax guidance on hotel and healthcare real estate.
