Real Estate

The real estate sector is benefiting from economic growth, due to an upward trend in domestic demand and growing global trade. The number of transactions is increasing, ranging from the transformation of existing real estate to more new build developments. Building-related sustainability requirements, changes in designation, dwindling retailer numbers, and vacant offices all necessitate smart solutions. Houthoff’s experienced Real Estate Team comprises over 50 real estate specialists who look beyond the problem. They have the extensive knowledge and experience required to anticipate the changing demand in the sector. Our civil-law notaries play a pivotal role in this. Our Real Estate Team is involved in the largest and most high-profile Dutch and European real estate transactions. Houthoff assists investors, project developers, financial institutions, construction companies, housing corporations and end users with complex real estate transactions and disputes.

Our expertise on real estate

Efficient legal support is a prerequisite for the sale, purchase, development and redevelopment of large real estate projects. Parties engage our Real Estate Team for advice on complex real estate structures, which our civil-law notaries and lawyers provide practical and innovative solutions for. Complex real estate financing requires legal and tax expertise and a comprehensive knowledge of the national and international real estate market. Our real estate specialists advise financial institutions, real estate funds and investors on refinancing, restructuring, complex real estate auctions and distressed loan portfolios. With the rise of smart cities, we also advise and assist national and international parties investing in sustainable capital, technological communication and smart infrastructure to realise these urban developments.

We combine our extensive sector knowledge with our knowledge of areas such as purchase and sales transactions, tenancy law, leasing, procurement, environmental law, project development, administrative law and real estate financing. Our dedicated Real Estate Team helps players in the national and international real estate sector succeed.
