The Irish property market  is undergoing a severe and harsh correction and commentators acknowledge that it still has some way to travel before stability and growth re-emerge. This environment is one where many investors in property (and businesses with property holdings) find that managing their property assets and the debt that attaches to them is the most fundamentally important part of their business dealings.

For some, though, these challenges create opportunities :  potential investors in property, businesses wishing to relocate to new premises and tenants seeking new locations.

This is also an area that has seen considerable legislative change in recent years.

In this environment, our clients value the fact that we can combine knowledge with experience. With renowned expertise, we advise on every aspect of what has become a most challenging sector. Colleagues recognise our capabilities by asking us to guide them in advising their clients in property-related cases, or they refer their clients directly to us.

Our expertise includes:

  • Drafting and negotiation of all types of commercial leases, as well as advisory and reporting services on existing arrangements
  • Asset acquisition and disposal, including investment for funds, investment companies and individuals
  • Asset management issues. We frequently liaise with leading agents and other intermediaries in this area.
  • We advise on co-ownership structures
  • All aspects of development, including development and forward funding agreements, build contracts and letters of appointment. Over the years we have experience of development of a wide range of projects, from office to industrial, healthcare, retail through to high-rise mixed use. We can also provide advisory and reporting services on existing suites of documentation and have the expertise to assist in the coordination of all players in a development team to ensure that the best possible results are achieved when concluding development documentation
  • Advisory services for multi-unit management companies (both residential and mixed use developments) in the context of existing suites of documentation and the MUDS Act 2011
  • Acting for other firms as consultant on property-related files or for their clients by way of direct referral
