Real Estate

The Belgian Real Estate sector has recovered from the 2008 financial crisis and is once again enjoying strong growth. The housing market in particular is flourishing, especially developments exploiting new construction techniques. Public-sector investment is also on the rise.

Against this background and combined with the ever-growing volume of new legislation, real estate projects must always pay special attention to the legal aspects.
