Review of the acquisition contract

FRELA provides a review of your acquisition contract. We ensure the security and optimization of your acquisition contracts according to your needs and to your benefits. FRELA helps you avoid pitfalls, reduce the likelihood of disputes, understand the tax and legal constraints, and takes into account your obligations and rights.

Real estate purchase transactions must be concluded through a written agreement: the real estate purchase contract or acquisition contract (compromise, protocol, authentic deed, share transfer, etc.). The buyer initially makes an offer which the seller may choose to accept or reject. The purpose of the document is to outline what the buyer and seller must do before the property transfer takes place.

Coordination of the parties

The attorney acting as a mandatary in real estate transactions is a legal professional who is authorized by a client to assist them in the purchase or sale of a property. They are responsible for ensuring the proper execution of the various stages of the real estate transaction and safeguarding the interests of their client.

At FRELA, our attorneys play a central role in coordinating the parties involved in a real estate transaction, including notaries, real estate agencies, and clients. In this capacity, our main function is to ensure efficient and secure management of the transaction, ensuring that all legal aspects of the transaction are properly handled and our clients’ interests are protected.
