We pride ourselves of many years of experience working for some of the leading projects in Italy in this field. We understand the complexities of social and affordable housing investments and we strongly support the widespread adoption of the housing model as a gateway to prosperity of society in ever evolving and demanding urban contexts.
Housing as a public service along with other services of public or general interest is a sector where we constantly try to find innovative solutions in terms of legal products flexible and appropriate to face the challenges of cost constraints in terms of development.
Our sector-specific expertise includes a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory framework surrounding affordable housing and services of public and general interest, as well as the various financing options available to investors. We have worked on a range of social housing projects, including the acquisition, development, and long-term management of large real estate complexes having this specific destination.
Our firm has an in-depth knowledge of the legal aspects of social housing financing, including public and private sector funding mechanisms. We help our clients navigate the intricacies of the regulations, both local and national, governing the access of low-income individuals to projects of affordable housing of quality. We strongly believe in the beneficial impact on society at large of social housing and we are proud of the contribution we make with our work to its diffusion.
emlex has extensive experience with the complex legal issues surrounding the development of affordable housing projects. We advise on all aspects of the development process, including land acquisition, zoning and land use issues, design and construction contracts and ESG related issues in terms of energy agreements, environmental risk management and all the other aspects of the construction phases. Once the real estate is completed, our expertise in social and affordable housing extends to the valorisation of the property in terms of leasing or trading, with innovative structures similar to rent to buy to permit a wider range of products for the investors to trade.
We, therefore, have an extensive experience in residential and commercial lease and leasing agreements, including agreements for the lease of branch of business as going concern.
We also have extensive experience in providing support to the management and operation of social housing properties. We have assisted clients in the creation of property and facility management supporting structures (outsourcing to third entities or incorporating dedicated legal entities), drafting asset management agreements, and implementing policies and procedures to maintain and exploit the investment. We understand the legal issues involved in the day-to-day operations of social housing projects, including tenant relations and compliance with local and national regulations.
