Property & Construction

Property & Construction

We act for developers, employers, contractors, landowners, landlords, municipalities, asset management companies, investors, insurance companies, tenants and individuals. We advise on a wide range of contentious and non-contentious property and construction related matters, in connection to planning, funding, sales and acquisitions, ensuring that our clients benefit from market opportunities.

Through our tailored one-stop-shop service that combines legal advice, property consultancy, land valuations and strategic advice, our dedicated property team handles all types and complexity of real estate transactions and is skilled in the settlement of claims and court actions. Also, the lawyers of our Department have extensive experience and are specializing in construction law and they have contributed, among other things, to the writing, revision and translation of standard construction contracts in Cyprus (e.g. new & revised standard forms of MEDSK contracts, standard forms of contract for the designer’s appointment by the employer (ETEK forms of contracts), standard civil engineer’s appointment contract (SPOLMIK), etc). The Head of our Property department was officially appointed from FIDIC as a member of the translation team for the official translation of the international form of contract “FIDIC Yellow Book” in Greek.

For non-legal property and land advice, our internal consultant, Andreas Z. Georgiou, a former director of the Cyprus Land Registry has extensive expertise on all land matters and government and public consulting, and assists our clients in the above areas.

We also work closely with the recently established real estate consultancy firm, K.E. Makrides Property Consultants & Valuers LLC, which offers additional property related services, within the framework of their extended experience and professional ethos. Clients benefit from a wide range of real estate advice and prompt, reliable consultation. Services include property valuations for all purposes (sale/purchase/rental, financing, financial statements, feasibility studies, compulsory purchase etc.); consultancy on all real estate matters and property management services.
