Real estate law: legal help

Real estate transactions are a complicated matter, regardless where the property is. It is usually more than advisable for both buyers and sellers to seek legal assistance from an experienced and knowledgeable real estate lawyer.

Buying real estate in your own country is complicated enough, but doing it abroad could make the process even trickier. If you are a foreigner in Bulgaria, looking to buy or invest in real estate, you will most certainly benefit from a legal consultation. A good lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the Bulgarian law system could provide valuable help for a successful real estate deal.

For many consecutive years, “Danailova, Todorov and Partners” law firm has been placed among the first in the field of real estate in the prestigious international ranking “The Legal 500”. Our team consists of experienced lawyers who will do their best to help you with any legal matter related to real estate, including commercial real estate.

Each client of ours is treated professionally and respectfully. We have an individual approach to every case and handle all our work with care and attention to detail. You can make an appointment for a consultation with one of our team members via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., phone, or our online contact page.

We guarantee you will not be disappointed and that we will work tirelessly to meet your needs until we successfully and efficiently close your real estate deal.

Our law firm provides consultations and draft documents for each scenario and each stage of the process for acquiring or transferring property. We can examine the legal status of any real estate and the property rights over it on your behalf to avoid any conflict of interest.

If you would like to buy or transfer ownership over real estate, we will do all the necessary administrative checks for you in order to spare you from the hassle of dealing with Bulgarian bureaucracy. The administration staff can sometimes be quite difficult to communicate with, especially if you do not speak Bulgarian. In addition, we will prepare all necessary documentation and make sure to cross all our t’s and dot all our i’s.

Additionally, when it comes to limited rights on real estate, we can assist with their establishment, amendment and termination. Of course, any other types of transaction with real estate as a subject are also within our expertise.

Here is a complete list of the legal services our real estate lawyers provide in relation to real estate:

  • As we already mentioned, dealing with Bulgarian bureaucracy and administration can be quite difficult, specifically for foreigners. That is why it is certainly a good idea to leave all administrative real estate tasks to us. We can do all kinds of check-ups in the Property Register of the Registry Agency, in the Geodesy, Cartography and Cadastre Agency,  and in the municipal administrations.
  • If you are looking to acquire or sell/transfer real estate, we will be there for you in every step of the way and support you throughout every stage of the process. This means that we will take care of the preparation of preliminary and final contracts for purchase of real estate, as well as the preparation of any and all other types of legal documents and contracts on transfer of ownership (exchange, donation, etc.)
  • If you already bought a property but would like to rent it out or hire someone to manage it, we can help you with the preparation of such leasing contracts and contracts for real estate management, as well as all kinds of other contracts regarding real estate.
  • We can also perform legal and financial analysis in the case of acquisition or transfer of real estate (in other words purchase and sale of property), and examine the ownership in detail to avoid any legal issues and conflict of interest in the future.
  • When it comes to establishment, acquisition and transfer of limited rights on real estate (rights on construction, rights on use, easements, etc.), we will also make a detailed legal and financial analysis and examine the respective rights.
  • If you are looking to invest, we can structure a portfolio of the real estate you have acquired for investment purposes. We will also advise you on all aspects of financing real estate investment, the management and following sales of the acquired properties.
  • We can also prepare construction contracts (including contracts under FIDIC terms and conditions, contracts for construction of infrastructure projects) and provide advice on legal and regulatory issues concerning construction and structural planning.
  • Last but not least, as lawyers we can naturally also represent you before the state and municipal bodies and in court if needed. You can read our article “Real estate in Sofia and Bulgaria: your rights” to find out more about the Bulgarian laws in this field. 

Our team of experienced real estate lawyers will help you with any legal issues and questions concerning Bulgarian properties in Sofia and the rest of the country. We provide services in English, Russian, French, German, and of course, Bulgarian. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information and expert legal advice.

We also specialise in trade law, contractual and commercial law, labour law, administrative law, tax law, intellectual property law and energy law. If you happen to need assistance in any of these legal fields, we will be more than glad to provide our expertise and make sure you get top quality legal advice.
