Real Estate

The lawyers at LMA have extensive experience in advising clients on real estate development, construction and conveyancing matters. Such services include legal advice and due diligence for clients investing in real estate, drafting legal documentation for property acquisition and construction as well as negotiating terms of appointments on behalf of national construction companies in relation to infrastructure construction projects. Additionally, our real estate team handles conveyancing, mutations and registrations on behalf of our clients before various land registries and registrars of assurances. In contentious matters, we represent parties at all legal forums in relation to property ownership, rent and construction disputes.

The team has advised the owners and operators of Pakistan’s leading hotels in relation to all their conveyancing and property law issues. We also provided legal representation in relation to the Bamiyan Hospital Project in Afghanistan and the Peace Hawk V project in Saudi Arabia as well as development/ building projects in Kuwait, Iraq, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Libya.

Our team has been appointed to prepare finance, security and ancillary documents to be used by a local finance institution and its customers for the purchase of property units in Lahore. In this respect we have reviewed and advised our client, from time to time, on its side agreements, documentation and understandings.

We regularly review title deeds of immovable properties and advise banks and financial institutions on financing against immovable property and preparation of sale deeds, assignment deeds and mortgage documents.
