Legal support of real estate purchase or other related transactions 

The price of our services, as a rule, does not include the price of services of a realtor, notary, appraiser and other parties to the transaction.

But, at the Client’s request, we can take over the execution of the transaction in full. Naturally, in this case we can take more responsibility for the result of the successful transaction.

What is the legal support price for a real estate purchase? 

At present, the price of the transaction depends on a number of factors related to the direct subject matter of the transaction.

For example, the legal support of a transaction with an apartment on the secondary market has a higher price than the support of a transaction with real estate on the primary market.  In addition, if a non-resident is involved in the transaction, this may also affect the price.

There are many factors that need to be taken into account before making a deal with a citizen of another country. For example, whether he/she has:

  • a bank account;
  • a residence permit, permanent residence permit, immigration permit, or any other document confirming a person’s legal stay.
  • a TIN (for tax payments).
Also, the characteristics of other participants of the transaction are important, because if you have a suspicious notary, realtor or other participant who cannot be replaced, this will likely increase the price of transaction support.

We offer you an introductory consultation with our real estate lawyer, who will not only understand your situation and goals, but also draw up an algorithm for achieving these goals, based on the norms and practice of Ukrainian law.

There can be many solutions to a problem - we will help you find the best one and do our best to solve it for you. 

Answers to frequently asked questions

How long does it take on average to complete a real estate transaction?

Preparing for a transaction usually takes 1-2 days. The transaction usually takes less than an hour. Much depends, of course, on the quality of prepared documents and the precision of actions.

What if you managed to make a deal yourself without any problems, and then it turned out that you can’t connect water and electricity to your site?

In this case, only a court and a lawyer can help you. Ideally, you should avoid such situations in advance by applying for a preliminary legal inspection of the property.

What additional costs may I bear when buying a real estate?

Much depends on the terms and conditions you agree on with your seller/buyer. The law provides for one situation, and in practice payments are often divided quite differently. Also, by choosing your seller’s notary, you run the risk of incurring additional costs.

At what stage is it better to apply for legal assistance and support to save both time and money?

Ideally, as soon as you have found a desired house, plot, or apartment, you should show it to a lawyer with all the documents. There are situations when a completely hopeless apartment or house without commissioning turns out to be a good object for investment, and there are situations when a real estate developer with an ideal reputation turns out to be bankrupt under arrest.

Assessment of risks of investing in real estate

Investing in real estate is a reliable and promising investment. However this medal has a downside − you can get caught in a scam by an unscrupulous seller. That is why we recommend ordering a consultation with a lawyer to assess the risks of investing in real estate. Our specialists will analyze the property in detail and on the basis of the information received they will recommend if you should invest your funds in it. 

During the risk assessment we check not only documents for construction and design, but also the reputation of the developer. The cost of assessing the risks of investing in real estate is usually included in the packages which can be found on the page above. Individual cases can be discussed with our specialists.

Buy and sell real estate in Ukraine with the assistance of a lawyer

The experience of our lawyers consists of absolutely different and non-standard situations related to real estate transaction support. 

For example, one day we had to replace a notary because of his “criminal past”, which the Client did not even know about. Although the notary was recommended by the Client’s reliable realtor, who also had to be replaced, as the latter was disrupting the terms of providing the necessary information to lawyers and our Client.

In another situation, our lawyers easily accompanied the transaction with a foreign citizen, who had overstayed in Ukraine. And all this thanks to our reliable partners.

Do you want to make a legal and safe real estate transaction? Don’t hesitate to call us. We will take care of your safety in the process.
