Ensuring the correct planning permissions and other regulations are in place when intending to extend or otherwise modify a property you own can be a complex process. Consult with a legal specialist to safeguard you and your property against potential disputes.
Purchase of a house or unit:
Signing a real estate contract requires an understanding of the potential financial and business implications. Appoint a lawyer to help you break down and understand the clauses of the contracts associated with buying property.
Purchase of commercial property:
If your business intends to buy a piece of commercial real estate, working with a member of the WGC conveyancing legal team can provide you with quality expertise on a wide range of commercial law, including the purchasing of property.
Purchase of land:
When buying a parcel of land, it is imperative to ensure that it complies with legal requirements regarding safety and suitability, especially if you are intending to build upon the land. Appointing a conveyancing legal specialist can be essential in the assessment and decision making process in land purchasing procedures.
Sale of a house or unit:
Transferring ownership of a property to a new owner can be a complex process. A legal specialist with knowledge of your situation and the property in question can advise you on the need for special conditions and ensure you are protected.
Sale of commercial property:
If you decide that the time is right to sell a commercial property from your business portfolio, be sure to engage a conveyancing lawyer with the experience and knowledge to facilitate the process until the property is sold.
Sale of land:
When selling land, you have a responsibility to ensure the property is lawfully transferred to the next party. This protects you should problems arise further down the line, as well as allowing for a smooth transition on to the new owner.
Compulsory land acquisitions:
There are five stages which must be completed to perform a compulsory land acquisition under the Acquisition of Land Act 1967. These are: notice, object, apply, resume and compensate. If you find that your all or part of your property is intended to be resumed, consulting with a lawyer can provide ease of mind as well as expertise when dealing with this complicated area of conveyancing law.
