Land selection consulting service

Points for land selection or building survey before sale /lease contract

What is Land selection consulting?

When looking for sites, lands, and buildings in ASEAN, Unfortunately, you can meet a malicious local real estate agency and confuse your project. In ASEAN countries, real estate agents are not obliged to explain before making a contract when buying, selling or brokering land or buildings, even if the land or building is defective. Therefore, it is very difficult to pursue the liability for defect warranty against the seller after the contract.

In order to reduce the risk of  clients who are considering purchasing or renting an existing building or site, our staff who are familiar with the land and building survey will support you.
