We represent private individuals, companies, property developers, land owners and hotel operators in the structuring of real estate projects, the management of properties and the purchase or sale of a property in Vietnam. Our expertise includes:
- Purchasing and selling apartments, houses and land use rights in Vietnam: When purchasing real estate in Vietnam, there are numerous aspects to consider to prevent disappointment. We navigate you through potential difficulties and support you in all phases of your planned property purchase in Vietnam, including a thorough due diligence of the property and the developer as well as the correct preparation of the property purchase contract and all related legal documents. We finally negotiate, design or review rental, lease and leasing contracts for you.
- Selecting and leasing land for investment projects in Vietnam: We support you in identifying the suitable land or property for your investment project in Vietnam, and acquiring the respective land use rights from the state. We advise you on duration, payment terms and related rights as well as pitfalls when leasing land for investment projects in Vietnam.
- Structuring complex real estate projects: We advise on the establishment of real estate management companies and draw up all related rental, lease and management- or service contracts for you. We not only advise you from a purely Vietnamese-local perspective, but also introduce you to “offshore” models, which are often more attractive for investors and builders. In this context, we carry out land and real estate due diligence for you.
- Hotel management agreements: We have special expertise in drafting and negotiating hotel management agreements (HMAs), representing both property owners and operators. While the property owners’ tendency mostly is to appoint a big-name operator, they usually end up accepting most of the operator’s conditions which can be risky as long-term HMAs are often full of latent time-bombs not apparent to the owner until a dispute arises.
