Property and Environmental Law

We have ten lawyers at Fylgia working with property law. Together, we have the skills necessary to cover the entire property and environmental law fields. We have the experience necessary to provide the support and advice demanded from various actors on the property market.

Lease Law

If land is made available with the right to build on it, or just use the land, and payment is made for this then it is...

a lease. The law provides that a lease is, in most cases, protected so the lease cannot be withdrawn without a valid reason.
The most common questions concern the right for the leaseholder to remain on the property and any possible economic compensation for, or reprieve from, being forced to vacate a property.

Fylgia helps with the termination of leases, negotiations between parties as well as representation in the District Court.
Lease law requires many forms and deadlines to be met for parties to obtain and maintain their legal rights. Receiving support in good time to meet these legal requirements is a precondition to successfully maintaining your rights, regardless whether you are a property owner looking to reclaim your land or a leaseholder looking to remain within the terms of the lease.

Co-operative Housing

Co-operative housing associations create a range of complex questions whereby the board often requires specialist advice....

Co-operative housing legislation leaves many questions open to interpretation which can lead to a number of complex issues. Precedence in this area is limited and does not always provide the answer to a problem.

Many co-operative housing associations rent out commercial premises. Being a landlord requires a heavy economic responsibility to the tenant, and this often requires specialist advice to get the best contractual terms. Fylgia’s property department supports co-operative housing associations with rental law questions in the courts and tribunals.
Other issues for housing associations typically include renovations, agreements with contractors, transfers, association meetings, economic plans, water damage amongst others. Flygia has a vast experience in dealing with such questions.

Property Transfers

Property transfers (or acquisitions) can look very different from one another. They can, for example, concern a private...

house, a rental property or commercial premises, or indeed an industrial property. The transfer can be the property itself or the company which owns the property. The transfer may involve first transferring the property to one of the seller’s own companies, which then transfers the property onward. The issues arising are varied and depend on many factors.

Such complex situations require a vast experience and knowledge regarding property law, environmental law, company law, company transfers and tax law, amongst others. Using Fylgia provides access to the competence and experience needed within this area.
