Buying and Selling a Property
When buying or selling a property you need an experienced property lawyer. You can contact us before you even start looking at properties, and we will offer you independent advice and act in your best interests. We also use KeyTrack, a system that helps us communicate with you during your property transaction.
Making an Offer on a Property
The next step in conveyancing is making an offer for a property that you wish to buy. This offer must be in writing in order for it to be an enforceable agreement. It can be prepared by either the vendor’s real estate agents or by us. We will happily check your offer before you sign it to ensure it covers all key issues.
Your offer should cover any reports that are required. The most common reports are valuation and building inspection and Land Information Memorandums (LIM reports). There may be other terms that you will require depending on your particular circumstances. These could include conditions relating to approval of the title to the property and arranging sufficient finance to fund the purchase, among others.
We can help you consider a number of structures when buying a property. These include family trusts, joint family homes, joint tenancy, tenancy in common and company entities. The best structure for you will depend on your personal circumstances, including your employment status, your exposure to creditors, your marital relationship status and whether you have children.
All lenders have different criteria for financing loans. It is important to check that you will not face early repayment penalties for breaking a fixed rate loan if you are refinancing. It can be difficult to compare the various types of loans with each other. We can help you get the best deal as we regularly deal with lenders. They can also be instructed by lenders to register mortgage documents.
Financing and Securities
It is important for both individuals and businesses to ensure appropriate financing and security arrangements are in place. We can help you to ensure that any security structures are relevant and appropriate, in addition to the preparation of loan and security documentation.
Subdivision is the division of land into two or more new titles and often includes the creation of easements, covenants and consent notices, which can significantly affect the owner’s use of the land.
Leases are legal documents and their importance should not be underestimated. A lease gives one person (the tenant) the right to occupy and use the property of another person (the landlord) for an agreed period of time and upon agreed terms and conditions.
Resource Management Issues
Resource management issues can often arise with property, particularly with subdivisions.
