Real Estate and Strata Management

Our lawyers have extensive experience in real estate capital management, development and permitting, leasing and foreign investments addressing a wide spectrum of real estate sectors and industries including hotel and hospitality, office, retail, multi-family, industrial, and distressed assets, to mention a few. We have worked with both public and private companies, individuals, REITs, private equity funds, operators, developers, institutions, and lenders. Our team can also offer advice on recent property “cooling measures” that might affect the purchase or sale of a property.

Quite often, when the Management Corporation Strata Title (MCST) takes over the running of the estate, there may be disputes, whether with the developer in relation to defective workmanship, or a whole myriad of day-to-day issues such as the lack of car park lots for subsidiary proprietors, the misuse of common property, noisy residents, lack of security, or simply the running of a management council. Our expertise in this area will equip subsidiary proprietors and/or Management Councils and/or Managing Agents with professional advice on living in strata properties as well as facilitating the better management of estates in complex matters such as claims against vendors, contractors and other third parties in matters which may have a far reaching impact on the running of the estate and its residents. We have acted with great success for MCSTs and subsidiary proprietors in Strata Titles Board matters. We have acted against developers/contractors in claims for defects, faults and deficiencies and against managing agents for, among other things, poor management of an estate and matters that are at odds with good sense and the Building Maintenance and Strata Management Act.

Our creative, insightful, and experience provides give us an advantage to help clients achieve their goals in real estate transactions whether on how to effectively structure, finance, lease, acquire, sell, and manage real estate assets in inside or outside Singapore.
