Property Conveyancing

Our solicitors and our conveyancer are all experienced in property law matters including:

Commercial Sale and Purchase

We act for both landlords and tenants in commercial leasing. We can tailor our leasing documents to your requirements and advise on a wide range of issues.

Mortgages and Securities

Buying or selling a home is generally the largest financial transaction any family is involved in. It is an exciting and anxious time. We strive to advise and guide you through the whole transaction so that it is a satisfying experience. You can rely on the experience of our professional team to give you peace of mind.

Strata Title and Sub Divisions

We act on strata title subdivisions and off the plan sales and purchases. Our advice on strata titles includes all matters relevant to the Strata Titles (Freehold Development) Act, owners’ corporation disputes, by-laws, insurance, etc.

We also work in conjunction with surveyors to achieve timely registration of subdivisions, including advice on the legal aspects, preparation of easements and covenants, and attending to registration matters.

Easements, Covenants & Planning

The existence of easements and covenants place restrictions on the way in which land can be used and affect the rights and relationships with neighbours. There have been a number of recent laws that affect such matters. We can provide you with advice in this important area of law.

We will guide you through this process including advice relating to the following legislative provisions:

  • Section 88K of the Conveyancing Act (court ordered easements);
  • Access to Neighbouring Land Act 2000;
  • Trees (Disputes between Neighbours) Act 2006;
  • Encroachment of Buildings Act 1922;
