  • Registry – Registering and transferring all property rights under all relevant Israeli authorities.

In Israel, the terms of Real Estate contracts are negotiated by the legal representatives of the parties involved and are not strictly determined by the State – unlike real estate transactions in the United States. Contracts are usually only signed after negotiations and the back-and-forth exchange of draft agreements. Each side’s lawyer in a typical Israeli real estate transaction is responsible for providing all the relevant documents and proof of title and ownership in order to assure the purchasers future unfettered ownership rights.
