Property transactions in Africa and beyond have become increasingly complex and advanced as a result of changes in legislation, multi-party foreign investment and cross-border sales and purchases.

ENSafrica’s dedicated property and real estate team is able to respond effectively to these challenges due to our extensive experience in advising on property developments and projects, including resort building, land restitution claims, mining villages, oil, energy projects, water projects, student accommodation and contractual issues.
