Background to real estate law and real estate business law in Germany
Real estate law - like the real estate industry - is an interdisciplinary field. Real estate law, residential property law and tenancy law form the classic sub-areas of german real estate law. If real estate assets are to be optimized, bundled or sustainably secured, questions of liability law, inheritance law or family law also play a role in german practice. Furthermore, tax law is a constant companion in real estate transactions and the management of houses, halls, plots of land, etc. Due to this range of topics and competences, there is no such thing as a certified specialist for german real estate law.
To some extent, certified specialists in german landlord and tenant law and in residential property law, as well as certified specialists in construction and architectural law, offer comprehensive advice in real estate law. Institutional players and wealthy individuals, however, are increasingly relying on german law firms specializing in commercial law with attorneys from various disciplines who offer comprehensive advice on all aspects of real estate. In metropolitan areas such as Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt or Cologne, there are now a number of medium-sized law firms in Germany with the relevant expertise.
In addition to knowledge of the legal fields listed above, a lawyer for german real estate law should also have relevant industry and market knowledge as well as good contacts, for example to banks, notaries, asset managers and project developers.
