German building law can be divided into two very different fields:
On the one hand, private building law, which deals with (contractual) relationships between private parties, and on the other hand, public building law, which focuses mainly on assessing the permissibility of a project and deals with legal relationships between private persons and the state.
We advise and represent private and corporate construction projects in regards to construction services, warranty claims, remuneration for example:
German public building law governs the use of land. Generally, a construction permit is required for any project prior to the start of construction. Many building owners do not understand that such permit requirements not only apply to construction projects, but also in cases of structural changes of buildings or change of use of buildings. Depending on the applicable federal state laws earth mounds and earth excavations may also require construction permits.
We advise building owners, real estate property owners, project developers and construction companies regarding administration process and court procedures concerning questions of construction planning and buildings regulation law, for example:
