Are you buying a home?
If you are buying a home, we will give you Professional advice on your contract including the Special Conditions which are attached. This may include advice on your Building and Pest inspection report or appropriate finance approval conditions. Ensure that you protect yourself.
Are you selling a home?
We will prepare the Contract and Vendor Statement. It is a Legal requirement to provide any Purchaser with a Vendor Statement and this document is important. Also, if you are signing a Sole Agency Authority with a Licensed Real Estate Agent, it is important this is explained to you properly and you understand the implications. Always discuss this with your Solicitor. Ensure that the fittings and fixtures that are to be included in the Contract are clearly detailed to your selling agent, and if there are any items to be removed from the property this needs to be carefully documented. Also, you should consider the following issues, namely:
- Have you made any changes to the property?
- Do you need advice on Capital Gains Tax, Goods and Services Tax, General Tax and implications in the State Planning?
Purchasing Off the Plan and Foreign Investment Review Board Approval
We provide a comprehensive service in respect to the off-the-plan Contracts and provide preliminary report and advice prior to entering into such Contract. We have been acting for Purchasers buying off-the-plan for in excess of 20 years and have a detailed knowledge and experience to advise. If you are purchasing as a non-resident, we also have considerable experience in dealing with non-resident clients and provide a high standard of service in respect to the requirements of non-resident.
Never sign an off-the-plan Contract until you have had it fully explained and the Contract contains full details as to the specifications and detailed Plans together with the proposed Plan of Subdivision. If you are purchasing as a non resident of Australia, it is a requirement that you have approval from the Foreign Investment Review Board and this must always be carefully considered.
We provide a comprehensive service and advice with regard to Commercial acquisition. Extra care and attention must be always be taken in regard to this type of acquisition, as many of these properties are constructed in areas that were formerly used for a different application and a comprehensive investigation needs to be undertaken on your behalf. If a tenancy exists with regard to the commercial property, a full and proper review must be undertaken with regard to the Lease as if you are relying upon any income this is an important aspect of the purchase.
The running of a business is both complex and stressful. When either purchasing or selling a business or entering into commercial agreements with other businesses, it is essential that you obtain good and practical advice. We make a point of explaining everything in plain English so that it is easier to consider any issues that are relevant in regard to your situation.
We have acted for and continue to act for a number of large commercial organisations and developers. We hold a reputation for reliability and we intend to keep this. We pride ourselves in being prompt and accessible in dealing with you in a language you understand.
We are very experienced in all aspects of the Law relating to commercial matters including the purchasing of franchise businesses.
We have prepared specialised commercial documents for high profile clients, licensing documents both in Australia and overseas, risk assessment advisors on agreements, business sales and purchases, merges and Joint Venture Agreements and have advocacy skills through Court representations.
