Property Law and Conveyancing

Your house is your castle

How often it is said - buying a home can be one of the most important transactions of most people’s lives.

Yet we are still often amazed to see people trying to cut corners and rely on advice that does not stand the test of knowledge and experience offered by law firms like Magill Earl Limited.

Don’t be a victim of this mistake. Buying and selling property (or Conveyancing as the process is often described) these days is not just filling in forms accurately – it is far more complex than it used to be.

Property ownership needs to be carefully considered in the light of implications arising from, for example the Property Relationships Act. Most property dealings mean that documents like Wills and Powers of Attorney should be established or reviewed.

Many families live in blended arrangements, or may become so, and these situations often call for an in-depth consideration of ownership arrangements. It’s often too late to avoid unintentional and distressing consequences downstream if things are not handled carefully at the outset.

Some examples of the sorts of work we undertake in this major practice area;

  • Buying and selling houses (Conveyancing)
  • Financing and Refinancing
  • Property development
  • Leases
  • Tenancy agreements
  • Subdivisions and Cross Leases
  • Unit Titles
  • Easements – rights over adjoining properties including Rights of way
  • Land covenants – like restrictions on types and quality of buildings
  • Fencing agreements
  • Boundary issues – like encroaching buildings or trees
  • Property sharing agreements
  • Relationship Property agreements
