DLA Piper develops model rules for green property management agreements
DLA Piper has developed model rules for green property management agreements in collaboration with the real-estate services company Cushman & Wakefield and the German Institute for Sustainable Real Estate (DIFNI).
The rules enable contracts (including specifications sheets) for green property management to be designed in a practical manner independently of the type and condition of both building and user behaviour.
The model rules drawn up since the end of 2012 within a working group formed by the three companies involved offer property management service providers and property owners comprehensive legal, methodical and subject-related recommendations for the design of green property management agreements.
The DLA Piper team working on the model rules under the management of Christiane Conrads (real estate, Cologne) also included Saskia Lais (intellectual property and technology, Cologne), Fabian Mühlen (real estate, Frankfurt) and Roman Scheuschner (real estate, Cologne).
