Succession planning for Swiss private real estate
As part of their succession planning, a growing number of Swiss clients are seeking the efficient structuring of their indivisible assets, i.e. private real estate. In this regard, the legal system in Switzerland offers various contractual options or solutions under company law. For instance, the use of property companies combined with shareholder agreements is a possible solution. However, the use of such property companies in Switzerland can be complicated and often only provides a partial solution to the succession planning issues.
