Property matters are the largest practice area of the firm. We are experts in dealing with first-time home buyers and all aspects of property law including: conveyancing (buying and selling), subdivisions, and refinancing your property from one bank to another.
No two transactions are the same and our experienced team can handle all property matters – from straight forward to complex and everything in between.
We offer competitive fixed fees for normal conveyancing matters, meaning you won’t have any surprises when it comes to your legal costs.
We work with your agent, the purchasers lawyer and the bank to ensure you have a smooth sale process. We are also happy to deal with private sales, for when you want to save yourself the costs of real estate commissions.
Private sales, families, first-time home buyers, investors, we take care of them all.
We recommend that you come to us first, to check that you have all the required information and conditions in your contract before you sign on the dotted line! However, whenever you contact us, we will guide you through the property buying process.
We recommend you include conditions for:
- Finance and Insurance – we can recommend brokers to help you get the best deal
- LIM Report – see a sample report here
- Title Check – see a sample title here
- Builder’s Report – see a sample report here
- It is also increasingly common to see Methamphetamine Check conditions
