Commercial leases

Residential leases

A delicate balance between the interests of the landlord and the rights of the tenant.

Neighbourhood disputes

From recurring disturbances to nuisances for neighbouring businesses.

Property for sale

Rigorous formalities and a large number of participants require constant involvement.

Construction law

Have defects appeared following building work done on your property? Have you been blamed for damage caused by your intervention?

We can help you with the out-of-court or court proceedings, as well as during the crucial phase of expert appraisal.

Co-ownership law

You are faced with difficulties within your co-ownership, such as unpaid maintenance charges or disputes arising, for example, from an opposition to a "AGO".

We are here to advise you, represent you in disputes or help you find the best solution.

Court Auctions

You can only take part in a real estate auction if you are represented by a lawyer before the Court.

Our regular practice of auctions enables us to offer you this service in order to advise but also to represent you on the day of the hearing and in the complex administrative process in the event of winning the auction.

We charge a fixed fee for this service.

Commercial leases

MUSE AVOCATS is here to advise you on your commercial leases, whether to recover unpaid rent, settle a dispute, conduct proceedings to set the rent for a new lease or a rent increase, etc.

Legal developments and case law in this area are constantly evolving, and we strive to anticipate these changes in order to assist you in this particularly technical area.

Consult our Blog to read the latest news on commercial leases.

Residential leases

Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, a residential lease can give rise to a number of disputes (unpaid rent, neighbourhood disturbances, damage to property, unfair treatment, etc.).

We can help you at every stage of the contract, from drafting a lease agreement to advising you on your rights and assisting you in resolving disputes.

Neighbourhood disputes

Relations between neighbours are not always smooth and gentle. Often, a lack of communication and entrenched positions can lead to inextricable deadlock.

MUSE AVOCATS is at your disposal to discuss your problems relating to neighbourhood annoyances and construction work, and to help you resolve these matters.

Property for sale

Property sales are lengthy and technical processes, during which the actors involved are subject to a multitude of duties: information, advice, warnings, etc. Sometimes, even though a preliminary sale agreement, either seller or buyer may wish to withdraw the operation, claiming a pre-condition has not been met and damages.

We are here to clarify your rights and, if necessary, take action to safeguard your interests.


Frequently Asked Questions
The following is a selection of frequently asked questions. For further information, please use our contact form or the chat module at the bottom of the page.

What is the initial consultation?

The initial consultation enables your lawyer to examine the circumstances of your matter and highlight any legal issues that may arise.

During this meeting, your lawyer will consult all the relevant documents you might have in hands which are related to your case to complete his analysis (contract(s), invoice(s), mail(s) between the various parties involved, accounting documents, witness statements, affidavits, bailiff's reports, etc.).

If the information provided is sufficient, a response may be given to you at the end of this initial consultation.

What happens after this initial consultation?

Sometimes it is difficult to resolve all the outstanding issues of a case at the end of a single consultation. Because a case is so complex, we need to request additional documents and/or information from third parties (administrative authorities, public registers, bailiffs' summonses) or to cross-check information in our professional databases.

At this stage, your lawyer will give you a roadmap outlining all the actions to be taken and the strategy to be followed in order to reach a solution.

All the foreseeable steps will be detailed in a fee agreement, which will give you an estimated time to carry out the formalities (drafting of deeds, compulsory formalities, forensic, court referrals, pleadings, enforcement of judgement).

Is the initial consultation charged?

Should you decide to entrust your case to us, your initial consultation will automatically be subject to a refund on your first invoice. However, if the initial consultation is a one-off and does not involve any sequel, the cost of the initial consultation will be set at the preferential flat rate of €69,00 excluding VAT.

How much does a lawyer cost?

Fees charged by MUSE AVOCATS lawyers are usually billed on a time-spent basis.

However, depending on each specific case, its complexity and what is at stake, how many steps need to be taken and the client's financial resources, a tailor-made fixed fee may be set so your budget is under control.

For more detail, please check the Services and fees page.

Can I pay in instalments?

Yes, our online payment service provider Stripe® allows you to pay your fees in instalments, free of charge.

Are your fees covered by legal expenses insurance?

Yes, in accordance with the deductibles and coverage limits set out in the general and/or special terms and conditions of your insurance policy. Also, please remember your insurance company cannot impose a lawyer on you. You are free to appoint any counsel you wish: our fees will be covered.
