Buying and Selling


We offer advice on appropriate conditions to include in an agreement to purchase, including finance, builders or engineer’s report, LIM and Council reports, valuation, title, ability to insure, watertightness or other conditions.


For some matters including commercial property purchases a due diligence clause may be necessary. We can review the LIM, building or property reports, cross leases, unit title rules and company licence agreements and handle all aspects through to completion.





We can act for you if you are involved in a dispute, litigation, mediation or a difficult situation.
