Real Estate in Israel

Real Estate in Israel 

Our Real Estate Law expertise include:

It is important to note, that the lawyer’s role in real estate transactions in Israel is different than the lawyer’s role in the US and Europe. In Israel, real estate contracts are not dictated by the state, but every contract is specifically prepared by the lawyers for the designated transaction.
Draft contracts are exchanged between the parties’ lawyers several times, while negotiating the different clauses, until an accepted version is reached, and only then a date is set for signing the contract.

Another material difference is that the Israeli lawyer in the real estate transaction is the responsible figure for gathering all the information and documents related to the property designated for purchase and is also responsible for examining the ownership rights in that property (similar to the escrow role in California). It is an important issue that requires comprehensive examination and the receipt of declarations and securities from the other party to ensure future rights for the purchaser.
