The legal team at Ingelaere & Partners is here to offer the expert guidance you need to make your real estate investment or construction project in Paris a success.
Navigate French Real Estate Law and Construction Law with Confidence
Whether you are an expatriate looking to purchase a new home or a real estate investor interested in developing a property in France, our French law firm is here to help. We are here to protect your rights when entering into contracts, acquire proper permits, and more so you can bring your real estate vision to reality. Let us help you navigate the complex French legal system today.
Understanding French Real Estate and Construction Law
Purchasing a property in France may be easier than you think, as you do not have to be a resident or citizen to own land here. However, the real estate market in France is quite competitive, and building laws tend to be strict. Additionally, it can be challenging to navigate any language barriers that exist between you and the other party. Our team can guide you through all local regulations and give you the confidence you need to know that the contracts you are signing are in your best interest.
Why Invest in French Real Estate?
While the process of purchasing property in another country can seem daunting, it can also be a wise investment as French properties tend to hold their value well over time. Owning a home in France can make it easier to gain residency, and owning commercial property can give you a foothold in a wealthy country with exceptional growth opportunities.
How Our Team Can Help
Whether you are looking to purchase a property or develop it, our team can advise you on all legal matters to ensure that you comply with all local laws and that your contract is in your best interest. When it comes to construction, we can help you determine what the permitted land uses are for the property you are interested in, advise you on the permits, appraisals, and inspections needed and guide you through the pre-construction process to ensure that you don’t make a costly mistake. All of these matters are considered civil, and most of them don’t require litigation. However, if your rights are violated in the course of any of these routine proceedings, we are ready to defend you in court to ensure that you get the fair treatment you are entitled to under French law.
Common Real Estate and Construction Law Services
At Ingleare & Partners, we can handle any real estate or construction legal service or litigation, but we see some cases more often than others. Still, if you don’t see a service you need listed, feel free to reach out, and we will be happy to walk you through your options. Learn more about our quality services.
Common Real Estate Transactions
If you are interested in buying or selling a property in France, or you currently own an income property, we can help you negotiate a fair contract between both parties so that everyone feels good about your new business arrangement.
Real Estate Purchases
Our team will help you create a solid real estate contract that allows you to inspect your property before buying, request repairs and back out if necessary. This gives you the confidence you need to buy your next home or commercial property in France.
Real Estate Sales
If you own a property in France that you wish to sell, we can help you negotiate a fair contract so you can get the most for your property and settle promptly.
We will help you understand your rights as a tenant or landlord to ensure that your needs are being met and you can make your new living situation a success.
Whether you own a commercial property and need a lease agreement or you need a commercial space for your next business venture, our legal team will examine your lease agreement to help you make sure that there are no surprises.
If you own land you wish to develop, we will walk you through the process and determine how to best proceed while ensuring that your plans are within the permitted land use.
Real Estate Contract Disputes
If you have entered into any contract and feel the other person has not lived up to their obligations or you are being sued, we can help. Our goal is always to settle out of court, but we are willing to fight for you in court if you have necessary.
Construction Law and Litigation
Construction law in France can be complex and can cover various situations, from obtaining permits to settling disputes over services. We will help you handle all of the legal aspects of your construction project so you know you are doing everything you can to ensure a favourable outcome.
Our team can help you determine whether your property can be used in the way you intend even before buying it and can help you obtain all of the necessary permits.
Construction Defect or Post-Construction Damage Claims
If your contractors have made a costly error that lowers the value of your property, we can help you recover the damages. Don’t lose monetary value due to someone else's mistake.
Breach of Contract
Any construction project involves multiple contracts to ensure that everything is done properly. If you feel a party on your project has not lived up to their obligations or you are being sued, we are here to help.
Construction Insurance Claims
Anything can happen on a job site, and unfortunately, sometimes, you need to file a claim with the insurance company. However, insurance companies don’t want to pay more than they have to, and it might not be enough to cover your costs. We can help protect your rights when dealing with insurance companies, so you get the money you need.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of people who will be working on your project, and it can be difficult to keep track of who is responsible for what. If a subcontractor breaches their contract or damages your property, we can help you determine your next steps.
These are just a small fraction of the types of cases we handle for our real estate and construction clients. If you are lost or need guidance and aren’t sure if we can help, give us a call anyway, and we will see what we do.
We’re Here to Protect Your Rights
Our main objective is to protect your rights when it comes to real estate and construction law. Whether you need help understanding your contract, you need to appeal a decision by a government agency regarding a permit, or you need to sue another party due to breach of contract, we are here to support you every step of the way.
