Conveyancing/Property Law – Buying and Selling

Conveyancing is the legal act of transferring the title of land from one owner to another and has come to encompass all legal work involved with the sale, purchase, and transfer of real estate.

We are experts in the field and can advise and give help on all matters relating to:-

  • Property Sales
  • Property Purchases
  • Refinancing
  • Subdivisions
  • Property Agreements and Arrangements
  • Trust and Company Transactions and Guarantees

All work will be carried out by experienced lawyers and highly skilled backup staff.

Property Sales

If at all possible you should talk to us before you start actively marketing your property for sale.  We can explain the legal steps involved and point out some of the pitfalls which could affect you along the way.  If the property is not your residence then you need to be aware of the “bright line” tax.

We can help you decide on the best method of marketing your property and put you in touch with trusted real estate agents or valuers if need be.

Should you be keen to market your property as a private sale we can assist you with the necessary legal steps and planning.

If there has been unpermitted building work done on your property in the past, especially if you have a cross lease or strata title, then you really need to be clear on the possible consequences or ramifications you might face as well as obligations in respect of correct Council or land records.

Property Purchases

As your home purchase is one of the most significant financial undertakings you will ever make, it is critical to “get it right”.  

You should see us before you sign any agreement or legal document, especially if you are buying off the plans.  We can explain the procedures and any potential traps in the small print.

We can advise on amendments or extra clauses to be added to better protect you.

We will work with your Bank or financial provider and ensure that you have an easy and stress-free transaction especially if you are a first home buyer.


If you are changing Banks or re-organising your finances we will ensure that all the legal procedures are carried out promptly and efficiently.

We can give you preliminary advice about the necessary steps that will occur and the administration required if you are involving trusts or companies, or are changing properties you are offering for security.


We are experienced in all aspects of subdivisions from the “backyard” development to multi-section undertakings.

With our help you may need to amend your cross-lease or strata title, or even convert these to new freehold titles.

Property Agreements

If you are buying with business partners, or with friends or members of your family, it is imperative that you consider a properly drawn legal agreement to protect all parties from unforeseen events in the future.
