Environmental Laws and Policies in Pakistan

Top Law Firms in Karachi PakistanWe are one of the Pakistan’s leading environmental law firms. Unlike many firms, we have a standalone environment group – not a team that is an add-on to a real estate, planning or energy practice.

Our approach is practical and commercial.  We help our clients assess risk and avoid problems. Where they do have problems, we help solve them. Where damage is inevitable, we strive to limit it, with particular emphasis on protecting reputation and, when necessary, individuals.

We usually work with our clients to avoid litigation. But when we can’t avoid it, our combination of in-depth commercial understanding and criminal advocacy know-how makes us a formidable force. We also have an experience of the appeals system and judicial review.

In non-contentious areas, our environment lawyers do a wide variety of ‘pure’ environmental work, as well as advising on risk assessment and apportionment in corporate, property and financing transactions. They also work closely with our specialists in the areas of planning, energy and International law.

Our clients include European and US investors in the Pakistan, government departments and agencies, local authorities, banks, investment funds, landowners, utility operators, property companies, landfill operators, professional bodies and companies from many other sectors, including manufacturing, waste, chemicals, construction, house building, rail, mining, quarrying, oil and energy.

The ‘Agreement of Sale’ or ‘Sale Agreement’

Top Law Firms in Karachi PakistanWhether you are purchasing a plot for construction of a home or an apartment from a builder, the sale agreement is a document that you will need to scrutinise minutely before signing. Once signed, you will not be able to counter anything that is on it.

Sale AgreementThe sale agreement being a technical document will have a series of terms that you need to understand thoroughly. Sale, for example, is a transaction where money is exchanged, in part or in whole, for the transferring of ownership of a particular piece of property in whole.

There is nothing explicitly mentioned in the law about the sale agreement being a written one. However, it is now common practice and even a practical thing to do so, especially if the document is to hold water in a court of law. An important thing to do is to get the agreement registered, as a non-registered document does not have any legal bearing and any deal made on the basis of it is considered void.

Clauses

There are several inclusions or what are called clauses in the sale agreement. It will describe the property, include contact details of the seller and the buyer, the negotiated price will be mentioned and also how this payment is being disbursed. The time frame for the payment will be included. There will also be a provision for the payment of stamp duty and for the account of the property title.

The clauses in a sale agreement are important because they outline everything that will go into making this a successful transaction, which is completely legally sound. The contract will tell you if the payment is to be made in cash, in part or an agreement for it to be paid partially in the future has been agreed on.

Some of the clauses will cover municipal taxes that are due by the person buying, as well as maintenance charges and in the case of an apartment being purchased payment towards the building society.

Payment terms: The onus is on both the buyer and seller to come to a mutual agreement on the price of the property and all other expenses that go towards the transfer of property. This has to be included and has to be agreed on by both the buyer and seller.

The time for the disbursement of the payment should also be included right up to the last instalment. The document will need to be scrutinised by lawyers from both sides and then signed by both parties.

Transferring property titleTransferring of property title: For a loan to be sanctioned, the property title is important.

This should be transferred to the buyer when the seller has got in hand the amount agreed on. The transfer is the last step in the whole process of buying the property. The property will have to be registered in the buyer’s name by the seller at the local registrar office.

Stamp duty: These rates are fixed by the relevant authorities and can vary with each State. The onus is on the buyer to ensure that the property has been registered in his name at the rate that the government has sanctioned for the transferring of the property.

Sale deedSale deed: This follows the agreement of sale and is an understanding between the seller and the buyer. Its contents need to be scrutinised by experts multiple times before you actually sign on it.

With the right kind of legal help to support you, there is no reason to fear the complexities of the agreement of sale. It is something that you can easily surmount.

Criminal Laws

Criminal Law

Criminal law involves prosecution by the government of a person for an act that has been classified as a crime. Civil cases, on the other hand, involve individuals and organizations seeking to resolve legal disputes. In a criminal case, the state, through a prosecutor, initiates the case, while in a civil case the victim brings the suit. Persons convicted of a crime may be incarcerated, fined, or both. However, persons found liable in a civil case may only have to give up property or pay money, but are not incarcerated.
A “crime” is any act or omission (of an act) in violation of a public law forbidding or commanding it. Though there are some common law crimes, most crimes in the Pakistan are established by Provincial and federal governments.
Crimes include both felonies (more serious offenses – like murder or rape) and misdemeanors (less serious offenses – like petty theft etc ). Felonies are usually crimes punishable by imprisonment of a year or more, while misdemeanors are crimes punishable by less than a year. However, no act is a crime if it has not been previously established as such either by statute or common law.
All statutes describing criminal behavior can be broken down into their various elements. Most crimes (with the exception of strict-liability crimes) consist of two elements: an act, or “actus reus,” and a mental state, or “mens rea”. Prosecutors have to prove each and every element of the crime to yield a conviction. Furthermore, the prosecutor must persuade the judge “beyond a reasonable doubt” of every fact necessary to constitute the crime charged.
