Legal support for development projects
One of the areas of work of the BRACE Law Firm is the legal support for the implementation of development projects. Development refers to the entrepreneurial activity associated with the creation of a real estate object, the reconstruction or modification of an existing building or land plot, leading to an increase in their value. Long-term practical experience in the field of investment and construction allows our specialists to carry out full legal support of such projects.
The main objective of legal support for the development project is to minimize the risks that may arise in the process of its implementation. There are always risks, independently identify and protect oneself from which the project participants will not be able to. Among them, risks associated with:
- the land plot allocated for the project (the plot is not formed, the allocation of the plot is accompanied by a dispute about its boundaries, the legal regime does not allow the project to be realized due to the impossibility of changing the type of permitted use of land, etc.);
- encumbrances of the land plot allocated for the project (there is another facility on the site, the presence of which makes it difficult to implement the project, leads to its appreciation or even makes it impossible);
- the rights to a land plot or real estate object (the right to a land plot where the project is intended to be realized, the ownership right to the object being sold, the legal dispute about rights, the need for re-registration of rights, etc.) is not formalized;
- requirements of third parties entitled to a limited use of the object or land plot;
- participants in the project (inadequate registration of the legal status and procedure for interaction between the participants, duration of approval and conclusion of contracts and agreements with large holding structures, conflicts between the management and the owners of the participant complicating the project implementation, the emergence of confrontation between the participants themselves in the project implementation process, etc.).
Thus, at all stages of the implementation of the development project, the assistance of qualified lawyers is required.
