Urban renewal projects are inevitable.

National Outline Plan 38 (TAMA 38)
The National Outline Plan 38 (TAMA 38) is intended to enable strengthening buildings that do not comply with the Standard for earthquake-resistant structures. The Plan enables obtaining building permits for strengthening structures as well as construction additions, while obtaining significant tax reliefs and exemptions, in order to create an incentive to strengthen buildings.
Handling TAMA 38 issues requires vast legal knowledge and experience, as it is necessary to protect the rights of the residents residing in their apartments vis-a-vis the developer’s/contractor’s interests. Such are apartments serving the residents for housing and there is a vital need for selecting the right contractor who will execute the building strengthening process, with maximal protection of the resident’s rights in initiating the process and realization thereof.
Our firm specializes in representing and accompanying both developers and residents, already at the stage of initial negotiations, up until completion of the project and amending the condominium order.
