Commercial conveyancing, cottage conveyancing, retail leases, commercial leases, unit developments and land subdivisions.

The charming term "cottage conveyancing" essentially involves the purchase of a property for your own personal use or for investment purposes. It is the most significant investment that most of us make and care should be taken to ensure that your interests are looked after. Just because these transactions are common, does not necessarily mean they are straight forward. Pitfalls that can arise include the existence of easements or other interests or a lack of relevant approvals for the house or extensions (such as the building of a deck, shed or pool). When issues arise, as they invevitably do, with finance approval, building and pest inspections, you are best served by having someone experienced to guide you through and give you all the options.

Entering into a commercial retail lease is often part of starting or expanding of a business so it needs to be approached with your entire business plan in mind.

When contemplating the purchase of commercial or industrial property, consideration should be given to the appropriate structure, such as a company or trust. This should be addressed before signing a contract to avoid an adverse duty or tax consequences. It is also important to give consideration to planning and approval issues.
