Coordination of intermediaries

The real estate lawyer is a legal professional appointed by a client to assist them in the purchase or sale of a property. They are responsible for ensuring the proper execution of various stages of the real estate transaction and safeguarding the interests of their client.

FRELA lawyers coordinate the parties involved in a real estate transaction, such as notaries, real estate agencies, and clients. In this role, our primary function is to ensure an efficient and secure management of the transaction, ensuring that all legal aspects of the transaction are properly addressed and our clients’ interests are protected.

Legal aspects of offer and acceptance

Trust the verification of your purchase offer to mandataire lawyers specializing in acquisitions law.

Understand the legal and tax implications of the purchase offer submitted by your potential buyer.

If you are selling a property, you will need to accept, refuse, or negotiate a purchase offer. To secure an offer, it is necessary to sign a written purchase offer that is countersigned by the seller (this agreement confirms mutual assent regarding the “subject matter and price”, any agreement, even a simple one, can have significant consequences for both parties).

Drafting of urgent compromises

FRELA assists you in drafting the content of your urgent purchase agreements.

In France, an “urgent” purchase agreement for real estate is a preliminary sales contract that commits both the buyer and the seller to proceed with the real estate transaction. This agreement is also known as a “synallagmatic promise to sell” or a “unilateral promise to sell.” It is called “urgent” because it is typically used for real estate transactions that need to be concluded quickly. It is also used to secure a sale by ensuring that the buyer does not withdraw and that the seller does not sell to another person during a specified period.
