All Services in Property Law and Conveyancing
Buying and selling residential and commercial property
When you are buying or selling real estate there is often a lot at stake. Even small mistakes can have severe consequences. From residential conveyancing through to complex developments, our specialist property law team can guide you through the process and make sure you’re protected every step of the way.
Residential, commercial and mixed-use developments
Successful residential or commercial development depends on navigating multiple rules, laws and regulations. But even minor breaches or on-site disputes can lead to project delays and lost profit. Our legal advice takes into account both legal and commercial imperatives, so you resolve issues quickly, efficiently and with minimum cost.
Subdividing can be an effective way to develop real estate. But the laws and regulations surrounding subdivision are often complex and confusing, and there can be hidden traps. Our expert lawyers will guide you through the subdivision process, including conducting due diligence on land for potential subdivisions before you buy.
Owners corporation (body corporate) advice and agreements
Without effective legal advice, an owners corporation can quickly become a source of confusion and even costly and protracted disputes. Whether you want to establish and register a new body corporate scheme, formulate or enforce bylaws or need help managing an issue, we can help you reach the best outcome.
Joint ventures and development agreements
A joint venture or development agreement can lead to a mutually profitable project. But often they become a source of conflict and delays. We can draft an agreement that considers the commercial reality of your project and prevents misunderstandings. We can also help you enforce your rights if disputes arise.
Option agreements can help both developers and property owners profit from a project without unnecessary risk. However, they can be more complex than other property agreements and often also lead to more disputes. We can help draft an agreement that clearly establishes your rights and minimises the chances of delays.
Expressions of interest
If you are responding to call for expressions of interest both you and the tenderer need to follow certain rules and procedures. We can help you understand your obligations under the laws governing this type of procurement and can advise you on your rights if you are unsuccessful.
GST and stamp duty
When margins are tight, taxes such as GST and stamp duty can make all the difference between a successful development and a successful one. We can help you navigate the sometimes complex laws of taxes and duties so that you maximise your profits and minimise your tax.
A registered caveat signals to the world that someone has an interest in land and can prevent you from dealing with that property. Whether you want to lodge a caveat or remove a caveat lodged against your property, we can help make sure you are in the strongest legal position.
