Czech Republic: At the beginning of this year, the Prague office of bnt conducted a number of specialist lectures and trainings for the market leader in the domestic and international real estate market.
In the course of January, lawyers and tax advisors of bnt participated in training more than one hundred real estate brokers of RE/MAX ČR (www.remax-czech.cz), the largest and most successful realtor network, and the only one with a Europe-wide presence.
Real estate issues from the vantage point of new legislation were a recurring topic in all the seminars: the Civil Code that came into effect on 1 January 2014 has substantial impact also in the property market. For this reason, the lecturers devoted much of their time to such concepts as ownership rights, rights of construction, property transfers, and changes regarding the entry of title in the cadastral register.
Last but not least, the presenting experts also looked at such issues as conveyance tax, pledge titles, rights in rem, commercial leases, and rental apartments.
