Real Estate

Advising developers and large investment funds across India on high–value transactions.


The driving principle for the Real Estate practice at AZB & Partners is to present the client with an integrated outlook on a particular issue or transaction and equip them to make an informed decision. Real estate investment transactions are much more complex than standard acquisition transactions due to the varied local laws, title issues and statutory approval requirements. Even from a foreign investment perspective, investment in the construction and development sector is subject to several attendant conditions. 

Our expertise within the core real estate sector includes acquisitions/transfers of immovable property, drafting and negotiating transactional documents, conducting due diligence and title investigations, and advising on transactions pertaining to development/re–development. As a full service firm, our team also draws on the expertise of the tax, corporate and funds practices. 

Our in–depth knowledge of the real estate market and deal structures is highly appreciated by our clients and makes ours a market leading practice in India.
