Inheritance law, property and condominium law

Since 2016, the lawyer and notary Axel Sawal has been working almost exclusively as a notary. He specializes in succession advice, i.e. drafting wills and transfers during his lifetime. We take our time for this. It takes as long as it takes.

The client explains his family and financial situation in detail in one or more conversations. Mr. Sawal designs and tailors a “custom-made suit” or “custom-made dress” that fits exactly. Specifically, this means that drafts for transfers, family companies or wills are made, then discussed and at the end - if everything is correct - notarized.

In addition to the question of who should get what, the complicated gift and inheritance tax law also comes up. That is the be-all and end-all of advice.

Of course, in a lively notary's office, property and condominium law are not neglected either. Here too, notary Sawal is a recognized expert after decades of work and intensive training. Short, clear documents that are precisely tailored to the individual case are drawn up.

15 episodes of the series “The Little Consent Advisor” in Real Estate deal with numerous aspects of administrator consent in condominium law.

Lecturer activity

Perhaps you have already received an invitation to one of the numerous seminars in gift and inheritance law under the direction of lawyer & notary Sawal. This concerns the drafting of wills, including Berlin wills and forms deviating from them.

There are also ongoing seminar evenings under the title “Patchworkshop”. Family constellations are discussed in which children do not only come from one family (blended family). Here an individual formulation of the succession is essential.
