Our focus is not only on the contractual design of real estate contracts, such as purchase agreements, donation agreements, tenancy agreements, easement agreements, etc., but also on the related public law (building law, trade law, etc.) and tax aspects. The processing via the electronic lawyers’ trust register of the Vienna Bar Association (eATHB) and the self-calculation and collection of taxes and fees complete the range of services offered by WHG in this area.
Whether it is project development away from the greenfield site, the development of existing properties or the handling of purchase contracts in accordance with the Property Developer Contract Act (BTVG), you can rely on the many years of expertise of WHG. We offer a comprehensive service with profound know-how, from efficient coordination and legal structuring of the project to support during the construction phase and sale (one-stop-shop).
By providing legal advice to project developers, WHG also has extensive experience in connection with the drafting of construction contracts, architects’ contracts and general contractor agreements. Over the years, we have built up a network of recognised real estate experts and investors to promote the realisation of real estate projects.
We will also be happy to provide you with comprehensive advice on tenancy and housing law, in particular in the negotiation and conclusion of tenancy or lease agreements. The establishment of condominium ownership is just as much a part of WHG’s areas of expertise as the representation and advice of individual condominium owners or condominium associations in all aspects of housing law.
Real estate transactions must be well structured from the very beginning. WHG supports you in choosing the optimal legal and tax structure (asset deal or share deal), in carrying out a comprehensive legal due diligence, in contract negotiations, in drawing up the necessary contracts up to the conclusion of the transaction. Real estate funds also rely on the professional expertise of WHG.
WHG also focuses on hotel real estate and the leisure industry. WHG regularly advises and represents hotel operators (including white label operators), but also developers of hotel real estate and serviced apartments. In addition to its comprehensive competence in tenancy law, WHG also distinguishes itself through its extensive market knowledge and expertise in this special area of real estate law.
