Why choose an International lawyer for the German property market?
More and more investors are becoming interested in property markets abroad, whether to buy a primary or secondary residence, or build an annuity for their retirement, or make an investment. The increased flows within the European Union, the growing number of binational couples, and the creation of a single currency have all stimulated these flows and exchanges.
If you want to invest in property in Berlin, Frankfurt or elsewhere in Germany, you’ll maximise your chances of success by having a property professional at your side. Property law is not the same everywhere and, depending on the purpose of your property purchase (investment, annuity, personal or family use, etc.), the legal framework will vary.
Take advantage today of the expertise of our international firm specialised in property law for all your needs.
We’re international lawyers specialised in the German property market.
Why invest in German property?
The fall of the Berlin wall in 1989 marked the beginning of a period of reconstruction for a number of cities in the former German Democratic Republic. In the capital, Berlin, following a period of stagnation, the property sector experienced a huge expansion beginning in the mid-2000s. Many foreign investors at the time were attracted by the sector’s low prices.
But Berlin property is not the only case: cities like Leipzig or, closer to Berlin, Oranienburg, have seen their property prices rise and have also attracted more and more investors. This makes complete sense, since the high quality of the buildings very often means that they hardly require any renovation. One can therefore purchase luxury properties – frequently even properties listed as historic monuments – which have a strong value-added potential in the years ahead.
The assistance provided by an International lawyer specialised in German property is based on two core competences: an understanding of the market and knowledge of the nuances of German legislation.
A purchase of real estate in a foreign country often raises a number of questions. So why not turn to a local interlocutor who is thoroughly familiar with both international clients and German culture? With JacobiLegal’s lawyers you’ll enjoy total peace of mind, as you work with recognised professionals in property transactions.
