We will present the offer to the seller himself if possible or to his agent.

6. The seller’s response
Our knowledge and skills in negotiating will lead to a final agreement.

7. It is a must to use a lawyer for Real Estate transactions
The lawyer will run all the mandatory checking of title and any other legal matters
-to the Tabu (title institution in Israel)
-to the City (to verify the permit and if all the building amenities are legal)
For the contract: the buying agreement with a private seller or with a builder MUST be prepared by a lawyer. As soon as the agreement is signed by both parties, the lawyer will register the sale at the “tabu” with a document called “eharat azara”, making sure the seller cannot sell that property again to another buyer. contact us

When Dealing with a builder – developer: typically 6 items to the contract
a) The participants to the contract
b) Description, legal and commercial characteristics of the property
c) Schedule of payments
d) Date of completion of the project
e) The financial guarantees
f) Commitment of the parties involved in the contract

The taxes must be declared and paid within 30 days of the signature of the contract
The buyer and the seller must each pay taxes relevant to the transaction. The buying tax called “mas rekhisha” is paid by the buyer. contact us
