How We Can Help You

Our PEXA-Certified senior solicitors can help you with your conveyancing needs, whether in person or online. Your choice.

We provide expert legal guidance and make sure that the transfer of your New South Wales property complies with all relevant laws wherever you are in the World.

We review and draft property contracts with attention to detail to highlight any unusual terms or potential issues. We also conduct thorough property searches to uncover any legal encumbrances, outstanding debts, or zoning issues that might affect the property.

Once both parties have agreed to proceed with the property transfer, we’ll oversee the settlement. Throughout the process, we’ll coordinate closely with all parties involved, including real estate agents, lenders, and other legal professionals, to facilitate smooth communication and progress.

Buying and Selling

We assist clients with the legal aspects of buying or selling property, including contract preparation or review, property searches, negotiation, and ensuring a smooth settlement process.

First Home Buyers

We guide first-time home buyers through the buying process, helping them understand their legal rights, obligations, and available government incentives or grants. We also give advice regarding the best options, financial arrangements, and strategies.

Family/Related Party Transfers

This involves the transfer of property ownership between family members or related parties, often requiring careful handling to ensure compliance with legal and tax implications.

Stamp Duty Assessments

We provide advice and assistance in assessing the amount of stamp duty payable on a property transaction. If the property transaction involves trusts, we’ll also assess the stamp duty implications, which can be more complex due to the nature of trusts.

Probate/Estate Transmissions

We handle the transfer of property as part of an estate following the death of the owner, ensuring the terms of the will are followed and the legal requirements are met.

Related Party & Spousal Stamp Duty Exemptions

If the property transaction involves couples and related parties, we’ll advise you on potential exemptions from stamp duties or reduced rates applicable under certain conditions.

We can typically arrange for your draft contract of sale to be ready and sent to your agent within 24-48 hours of receiving your instructions.
Typically, conveyancing takes between 6 to 8 weeks from the date of the contract to settlement. However, this can vary depending on various factors like the type of property, financing arrangements, and any specific issues that may arise.
No, you usually don’t need to be physically present at settlement. As your conveyancing lawyer, I handle the settlement process on your behalf, ensuring all necessary documents are exchanged and financial transactions are completed.
Disbursements are the additional costs incurred during the conveyancing process, separate from legal fees. These include costs for property searches, certificates, and government charges.
Withdrawing from a signed contract can have legal and financial consequences. It’s possible in some circumstances, especially during a cooling-off period if applicable, but you may incur a financial penalty.
‘Joint tenants’ means that all owners hold an equal share of the property, and if one dies, their share automatically passes to the other. ‘Tenants in common’ allows for different ownership proportions and enables owners to bequeath their share separately.
Yes, many jurisdictions offer concessions, grants, or reduced stamp duty for first-time homebuyers. These vary by location and property value, and I can advise on what’s available in your case.
If significant issues are found, you can negotiate repairs, a price reduction, or even withdraw from the purchase, depending on the terms of the contract and the nature of the issues.
