Real Estate Law - Portugal

Belzuz Advogados’ Real Estate Legal department started as part of the Commercial and Corporate Legal Department, advising our clients on real estate related matters.

The growing demand for legal services in this area, as well as the specificities and requirement levels in this sector, created the need to form a separate department, one that would independently and distinctively deal with and study these matters.

Our team has extensive experience in both public and private sector, since it provides legal advice to companies, funds, institutions and individuals, on issues dealing with urban development, the environment, taxation, contracts, litigation and labor law.

In our Real Estate Legal department, we are constantly dealing with transactions and negotiations that require an exceptionally high degree of expertise. Our national and international customers have a unique team at their disposal, advising them in a comprehensive way and covering all aspects of their business.


 The following services are available within Real Estate Law department:

Sale and purchase of Real Estate and Real Estate Companies

Our real estate team specializes in the legal aspects of all types of real estate (office buildings, shopping malls, industrial warehouses and logistics centers, hotels, homes for the elderly, residential property portfolios, golf courses and sports marinas), with specific knowledge of the legal aspects to be borne in mind when selling or purchasing such properties, as well as in real estate project finance and the arrangement of guarantees and other collateral.

Moreover, as a multidisciplinary firm, we are able to supplement our industry-specific experience with advice in the other fields of law that may be involved (tax, labor and employment, competition law, etc.). We advise on competitive sale processes and on ordinary purchases, sale & leaseback transactions, the sale and acquisition of buildings under construction and forward-funding arrangements, in addition to the regularization of real estate portfolios for subsequent sale or to maximize their value.
