PRACTICE AREAS

PROPERTY AND CONVEYANCING

The regulatory framework around property is technically complex, having evolved over many years.  Added to this complexity, investing in or developing property is also a significant transaction.

We believe there is great value and benefit in ensuring your agreements are properly structured and that you are assisted through the minefield with useful advice and guidance by an experienced and skilled team.

Our property and conveyancing team is well-equipped and experienced in a broad variety of property-related matters.

We act for property developers, landlords and tenants.  We also have a transactional property team to look after conveyancing services.

We have a unique combination of skills, with practitioners who have vast experience in property-related transactions and developments, including development management experience.

Our practice areas include:

  • site due diligence investigations and pre-transaction advice,
  • joint venture and development agreements,
  • residential and commercial purchases and sales, including nominees and sub-sales,
  • off-the-plan sale contracts,
  • stamp duty, land tax, GST and CGT advice,
  • retail and commercial leasing (including shopping centre tenancies),
  • town planning related matters,
  • financing and securities matters including mortgages, charges and PPSR,
  • Foreign purchaser and FIRB advice,
  • adjoining owner risks and disputes,
  • adverse possession applications,
  • subdivisions,
  • retail and commercial leasing,
  • building and construction matters (including Australian Standards contracts, Domestic Building Contracts Act 1995 (Vic) and Building Act 2003 (Vic)), and
  • property joint ventures.

We have multi-jurisdictional experience in providing advice in conveyancing (VIC, NSW and QLD).

We have acted for developers of low to medium rise developments and greenfield subdivisions.

We have capabilities to provide written and oral advice in Mandarin, Malay or Cantonese.
