Overview

Conveyancing involves the transfer of legal title of real property from one person or entity to another. Property Law focuses on the aspects of the law associated with land, property, ownership and disputes.

Buying or selling a property is often one of the biggest financial decisions that you will make, so it makes sense to get advice from a lawyer and a conveyancer that you can trust.

The conveyancing process may appear straightforward, however, it has many complexities. The complexity comes with understanding the procedural obligations involved in a transfer of ownership and navigating the unique attributes of your property or land. No one property conveyance is the same as another. That’s where our expertise comes in, you can trust us to take care of you.

FAQs

Talk to us early in the process so that we can ensure that you have secured your finance, are aware of any potential Government entitlements and properly understand your property ownership.

Before signing any documents with a real estate agent, we ask that you provide us with a contract to review so we can provide advice. We recommend that you obtain any pest, building or strata reports, as relevant to your purchase.

You can be assured that we will minimise the risks and stressors associated with buying property.

When purchasing an investment property, you will first need to consider your type of property ownership, e.g. self-managed superfunds. You will need to organise appropriate financial arrangements, and understand the tax implications of investment properties. This is where our expertise comes in. We are experienced in assisting clients with expanding their asset-base, and will hold your hand through the process.

We can assist you in navigating through the intricacies of sub-division and development. You will first need to ensure that a surveyor prepares all plans and conditions necessary for council approval. We will assist you to obtain any mortgagee consent to the sub-division, and ensure registration at the NSW Land Registry Services. Contracts for sub-division are often very complex, and we recommend our services to navigate this process.

There are a lot of options available that depend on your circumstances e.g. independent living or assisted living. We recommend that you have a conversation with us and a financial planner to discuss your options and how they can be executed to minimise your stress. 

A financial planner will likely make several recommendations, however these will require legal input. We are experienced in executing simultaneous settlements, where your home will be sold in conjunction with your funds being paid towards any fees  payable to your Retirement Village. This means you can often move out of your home and into your retirement accommodation on the same day, so that you don't need to find an alternate place to stay in the meantime. 

No question is too big or too small. We are here to help you through what can be an emotional time. 

We can also assist with Retirement Villages and Aged Care agreements alongside potential Granny Flat arrangements, or the sale of property to pay a Refundable Accommodation Deposit for a Nursing Home.

Good question! Yes we do. We can:

  • Prepare new leases for landlords.
  • Review leases and provide legal advice for tenants.

Our Process

We recommend that you contact us when you are thinking about buying or selling property so that we can guide you moving forward, in other words being proactive and doing some planning before you place your property on the market. 

We will navigate you through the property processes and liaise with your real estate agent and any other interested parties to ensure that your contract is unique to you.

We know the potential pitfalls and will always ask all the right questions to make sure that you are making the right decisions for you.
