PROPERTY LAW AND CONVEYANCING: OVERVIEW
By focusing on quality and service we can assist you through the entire standard process of conveyancing.
In general terms, the law of Conveyancing involves the transfer of legal title of a property from one person to another, or otherwise the granting of an encumbrance over a property in favour of another.
The Conveyancing process can either involve the buying and selling of property and the process includes;
– If purchasing a property, reviewing and providing you with written or verbal advice on a Contract for sale
and the effect that it will have on you.
– Negotiating directly with the vendor solicitor on your behalf in relation to amendments to the Contract for sale.
– Attending to exchange of contracts.
– Advise you on the payment of stamp duty and the methods of paying such duty including and assisting with any
exemptions or concession applications
– Preparing settlement adjustment figures and ensuring proper adjustments of council and water rates and if relevant strata levies.
– If you are buying a property and you have a financier providing you with a loan, loan documents are required to be signed and
returned to the Lender together with their requirements.
– Liaising with your Lender to provide any requirements and liaise with them to arrange settlement time and place and
provide them with cheque direction.
– If you are selling your property a contract for sale is required to be prepared on your behalf before you will be able to market
the sale of your property.
– Also if you are selling your property, we would write to your discharging mortgagee after exchange to ensure that they will be in a
position to settle the matter, and provide a payout figure and have the Certificate of Title available for settlement.
– Attending to settlement on your behalf.
BUSINESS CONVEYANCING AND LEASING: OVERVIEW
Our property solicitors are experienced in handling a broad range of Conveyancing matters, not only limited to the Sale and purchase of residential property but also the leasing of Commercial or Industrial property. We can act on behalf of a landlord or a tenant. We can also act on the Sale and Purchase of a business.
The purchase and sale of business transactions often involve a wide range of issues that include but not limited to Intellectual Property, good will, Equipment and other considerations. Tax law also becomes relevant in the majority of such transactions and need to be considered if it forms part of the matter. In relation to such transactions our firm has acted for Landlords and Tenants over the years. The Landlords that we have represented include owners of Commercial, Industrial and Retail property and we have acted in drafting complicated Lease documents and advising landlords in relation to complicated issues regarding Leasehold interests and intentions to lease their commercial or industrial or retail property. We have also acted for Landlords in disputed matters, including assisting landlords to evict tenants for Commercial or industrial property, and in collecting unpaid rent. Our litigation expertise ensures that we can add another level of experience in acting on such matters. Alternatively, we have also acted for tenants in relation to leases, and we are able to closely analyse the terms and conditions of a lease or proposed lease, and provide detailed legal advice in relation to such terms and conditions and seeking amendments on the tenants’ behalf if required.
