Supreme Court Reduces Protection for New Apartment Buyers

A new Supreme Court ruling determines that a warning note may not be used as collateral for buyers of apartments in a TAMA 38 project in Ramat Gan in which the developer went bankrupt. In light of the ruling, Elder Adato, the head of our Real Estate Department, was interviewed by Calcalist. He commented: "In dozens of TAMA 38 projects all over the country, the only collateral home buyers received until now was a warning note. These warning notes were primarily intended to ensure the money of home buyers. It is important to note that this ruling applies only to a specific event, in which the contractor collapsed and the warning notes constituted an 'onerous asset' for the completion of the project. "

Building Removed from Pinui-Binui Plan Due to Residents' Objection

Our firm was interviewed by Globes about a pinui-binui project in Kiryat Yovel, Jerusalem, some of whose residents we were representing.
