Agency law from December 2020 What do real estate agents have to pay attention to from 23.12.2020? For information for our brokers and E1 licensees: Shortly before Christmas, there was a change in the brokercommission commission: the new law on brokerage commission from 23 December 2020 was already adopted by the German Bundestag in June
An asset deal in connection with real estate investments is a transaction in which the investor purchases a property directly. The object of the sale is the property itself – in contrast to the share deal, in which only shares in an object company are sold. An asset deal is always associated with a property purchase. The buyer becomes the direct owner of the purchased property instead of the seller. In addition to the “classic” property purchase, in which the buyer acquires a plot of land with an existing building, other forms of an asset deal are possible. These include property developer contracts, general contractor models, land purchases with contract acceptance and property outsourcing through sale-and-lease-back. Portfolio transactions can also be asset deals if several individual properties are sold en bloc. On the other hand, if a portfolio transaction sells shares in a company that holds the real estate portfolio in question instead of individual real estate, it is a share deal.
