Smart contracts for real estate investment
For all the technological advances seen in many parts of the real estate business, transactions – both for assets and for funds – are still a costly and time-consuming process. One solution to this problem could be creating automated transaction systems, where human involvement is replaced by digital ledger-based technology (DLT). Smart contracts are at the heart of these systems.
Letter from Brussels
Over most of the past two years, the Public Affairs and Tax Committees and the Brussels-based Public Affairs team have been kept busy with a stream, or sometimes more accurately a torrent, of regulatory and tax consultations. These consultations are a required step in the process of developing new regulations and tax measures and are designed to get public input into policy proposals before they’re adopted in final form.
Throughout the pandemic, INREV’s Public Affairs Committee continued to work to promote the interests of the non-listed real estate industry with regulators in London and Brussels and to share their insights with members.

Real estate transactions involve a number of different stages and multiple intermediaries, such as lawyers and agents, who help reduce risk for all participants but add time and cost.
