construction law and real estate

Our construction law and real estate specialists cooperate closely with our specialists in administrative law and environmental law for an integral approach of the property market. We have been involved in building agreements and disputes for almost 100 years. We think actively with assigning parties, developers and contractors, with government bodies, housing associations and healthcare institutions about the handling of various types of projects. But our expertise is much more extensive.

PPS or cooperation in projects, LEAN, BREEAM, Supply Chain Management or BIM in the building industry, commission contracts with architects or structural engineers, but also the Social Support Act, the ICT. We know everything about it and are specialised in purchase agreements and building contracts, property development agreements and PPS, rental and letting, as well as in all aspects and permits needed for developing, building, maintaining, rental and property in the broad sense. We will help you to find your way so that your projects progress optimally and to avoid or solve disputes.

We think with you about your opportunities and can help you efficiently and with know-how of your industry to limit the risks and increase your output. We ensure that the arrangements in the entire chain match each other, so that the failure costs are limited to a minimum.

In any case, we are familiar with all contracts and general terms and conditions of the industry, such as the UAV 2012, the UAV-GC 2005, the DNR 2011, etc., all with the correct general (purchase or selling) conditions. To that end, we give workshops  for you and your staff. We guide the participants with ‘real-life’ examples in an interactive way past the pitfalls of practice and our law. Please do not hesitate to contact us.


We have all relevant agreements available as models for you. This saves time and therefore costs which are needed to tailor the model to your specific wishes.

For instance, we see that the UAV-GC 2005 is used more and more often, because the assigning parties wish to leave the design risk with the contractors. We have a vast experience in that aspect for all parties in the chain. We know the specific arrangements to that end in the industry, such as those of Aedes and also the set of the Result-oriented Cooperation (RGS).


Our blogs are in line with practice and always contain tips and advice. For example:

  • UAV-GC case law: It is not so easy to take leave of the UAV.
  • Avoid vacancies: (extension of) the possibility of temporary letting.
  • The non-competition clause in an employment agreement for a definite period of time: It’s time for an update.
  • Title and content of a rental agreement: poles apart.
  • Working with lift trucks: how to do it safer.
