Construction Law

Construction and architects’ law have a particularly practical relevancy and explosive nature. Especially in the field of construction law, clients should have the possibility of turning to reliable consultation by a lawyer who is well-qualified in construction law as early as possible, specifically before the first steps are undertaken (such as application for the construction permit, selection of contractors, etc.) to avoid follow-up costs for possible legal disputes.

STEINWACHS Law Firm provides consultation on all aspects of construction law, real estate law, and related legal areas.

In this context, a large number of prior case proceedings can be referred to, in which the individual characteristics of the particular legal situation of each federal state have been applied, which for the builders often pose tricky obstacles in realizing their ideas. From practical experience we know that builders are all-too-often unaware of the imminent financial damage or losses which may incur if legal requirements are not met. Orders for demolition or restraint of use are possible and can have severe financial consequences for the client, thus early advice from a qualified attorney is indispensable.

Building inspection

Necessary insurances

Proceedings in case of construction flaws

Architects’ liability

Inheritance Law

Just like family law, inheritance law is often characterized by legally challenging conflicts. The reason for this is mainly the legal definition of devolution upon death as universal devolution and the existence of a collective ownership when there are several heirs. This is why the sad news of the loss of a beloved family member is often accompanied by judicial disputes over the inheritance, which can lead to disputes in the family and ultimately cause a considerable burden or a break within the family. Inheritance law requires lawyers working in this field not only to have experience and a willingness to constantly keep up-to-date with ever-changing inheritance laws, but also demands the highest degree of social competence.

Consulting a lawyer qualified for inheritance law is highly recommended if one wants to avoid drastic disadvantages in this often confusing legal field. Some fundamentally wrong ideas about inheritance law still are widely believed, for example the belief that debts of the testator will not be inherited or can without hindrance be eliminated from the inheritance at a later point. Another rarely known issue is the existence of a collective ownership when there are several heirs, which means that it is legally stipulated that the inheritance cannot be disposed of by an individual, but only with the consent of all heirs. This already leads to considerable conflicts in the field of private law. When it comes to the succession of a company ownership collective ownership of an inheritance often is about considerable amounts of money and may even put the testator whole life’s work at risk.

This makes it all the more important to receive comprehensive consultation which leads to the desired outcomes. By commissioning STEINWACHS lawyers, you ensure that your goals are achieved comprehensively and with the necessary sensitivity by a lawyer experienced in inheritance law.
