Our property lawyers’ specialty areas include:

Selling a residential property

Selling can be a stressful and overwhelming exercise. It is integral to have a property lawyer review the contract before you sign the dotted line to ensure that your best interests are protected. Our team will provide you with advice about your rights, obligations and warranties that apply under the contract.

Buying a residential property

When you are making one of the most significant financial investments you will ever make, it is important to have a property lawyer guide you through the complex process. Our Gold Coast team will ensure you have a comprehensive understanding of the fine print in the contract, and that all the relevant searches and checks are completed satisfactorily before you agree to buying real estate.

Commercial Conveyancing

Commercial conveyancing is a significantly different process to that of residential conveyancing. There are many factors that need to be considered to ensure the acquisition or disposal of commercial real estate is successful. Commercial transactions require the knowledge of other relevant areas of law including tax, leases, town planning and entity structuring.

We are also able to assist with:

It may seem unnecessary to have a lawyer review a Retirement Village Agreement or Nursing Home Agreement and advise on the content before signing. However, by not seeking advice before entering into one of these agreements, you may get a nasty surprise down the track and it can cost you a lot of money in the long run if you try to break the agreement or do not meet your obligations.

Retirement living agreements can be very complex, and many people find them to be confusing. Our property lawyers can assist you in understanding your rights and responsibilities, as well as any hidden costs that will apply to you.

Every retirement village or nursing home has its own set of rules and fees associated with living at their facility. It’s important to do your homework and get the right advice before signing on the dotted line.

We offer independent legal advice in relation to guarantor documents, mortgages, and securities. If you are signing loan documents, it is important to understand the contents within the contract, the fine-print, and your rights and obligations.

A guarantor document will usually require a lawyer’s certificate. Before signing loan documents, we will give you detailed advice and ensure you understand the effect of the agreement and your role and responsibilities as guarantor on the loan.

Off the plan contracts can be complicated to navigate and are often full of hidden clauses. Before making the big decision to purchase a property ‘off the plan’, let us help you ensure you have a full understanding of the relevant clauses and fine print within the contract. By obtaining independent advice from an experienced property lawyer, you can have peace of mind in knowing there will be no nasty surprises along the way, and you know exactly what to expect.
