Commercial Property in Germany: Purchasing and Tenancies
At Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte, our real estate lawyers regularly work alongside our corporate clients in the purchase and leasing of commercial property in Germany. We work with businesses of all sizes from small businesses looking to establish themselves, to bigger enterprises seeking to grow and expand their company in commercial property cases. In all matters concerning commercial property whether purchasing, leasing, constructing, developing or otherwise, the advice of real estate law experts is beneficial.
Commercial leasing is a different proposition to regular residential tenancy in Germany. Whereas residential tenancy has greater protections under the German Civil Code, commercial property leasing allows greater flexibility with freedom of contract. Both parties in a commercial leasing transaction are seen as on a similar level of power. However, even with freedom of contract applying, there are rules around the terms and conditions of the contracts.
Our real estate lawyers advise tenants and landlords in commercial property cases. Our full-service approach means that our lawyers can be relied upon to examine tenancy agreements, carefully draft contracts to ensure that they fulfil the demands of our clients and effectively negotiate with the parties involved in the transaction.
