Condominiums

We provide legal advice to private condominiums in all aspects relating to renovation projects, infill construction and real estate development.

Urban infill contruction, made possible by zoning development, often requires any partnership agreements be legally concluded prior to the commencement of the zoning change process. In such circumstances it is advisable to use an experienced legal advisor in land use negotiations with specific emphasis on zoning changes.

Kirves Attorneys Ltd also provides general advice on matters relating to contract and corporate law.
