Real Estate disputes

Back to Real Estate

From disagreements over the fulfilment of conditions precedent in an undertaking to sell to latent defects, co-owned properties in debt, divergent interests between lessor and lessee or between public bodies and contractors, etc. – there has been an increase in property disputes in recent years due to the increasing complexity of a constantly changing legal and regulatory framework (including the Alur law, the Pinel law, the Macron law, the law on energy transition for green growth and reform of contract law). In order to anticipate the associated risks, it is vital to secure the entire real-estate project from the outset and, where relevant, to receive lead-edge assistance in the event of a dispute or major disagreement.

Our associates draw on their widely recognised experience to advise you and defend your interests with pragmatism and dexterity in any pre-litigation and litigation situations you may face. In close collaboration with their colleagues specialising in tax and public law, they are able to intervene effectively in the framework of disputes over property law and rental disputes (recovery of rent and charges, revision and termination of the lease, expulsion, co-ownership, renewal of commercial leases and revision of commercial leases), disputes relating to construction and construction insurance (appraisals, legal and contractual cover, preventive pre-construction survey, summary survey, architects’ and contractors’ liability), public law disputes and tax disputes. They will also assist you in defending yourself against appeals against administrative authorisations (building permits, etc.).
