Real Estate

The real estate sector is one of the fundamental pillars of the Italian economy and it has often represented fertile land for business opportunities for Italian or international operators.

The sector rules require a high degree of specialisation, as issues which may seem trivial to the untrained eye, could potentially have an enormous impact. There is a wealth of innovative legal instruments from rent-to-buy to favourable regulations for spin-offs and liquidations. On the tax front, regulations in respect of VAT, registration, mortgage and land registry have been changing frequently in recent years, with the resultant need for constant updating.

The long tradition held by Russo De Rosa Associati in this sector forms the basis of the legal and tax assistance provided to the main sector operators during investment, trading, development and real estate management transactions.

The assistance offered by the Firm extends to every stage of the operations namely the acquisition, discontinuance and/or valorisation of real estate assets, overseeing the preparation of the business plan, financial, corporate, legal and tax structuring of the project and drawing up all the contractual documents finalised at the coordinated completion of the initiative.

By way of example, the Firm can be engaged for the drawing up of real property purchase agreements, loan agreements, work contracts, partnership agreements, agency agreements and property management contracts as well as lease agreements.
