We also have an established reputation as advisers to commercial and residential property developers, particularly with respect to the development of residential, commercial and mixed property developments. 


You will find that we are constantly looking to understand your business and your property requirements so that we can provide you with clear logical solutions. 


Residential Property

It doesn't matter whether you are a first-time buyer, a seasoned investor or are trading up or trading down, buying or selling property is always a very significant and important transaction. 


We have extensive experience in the property industry and in guiding buyers and sellers through all types of residential property transactions. 


We will provide you with clear guidance and advice to take you through the legal process to give you both the confidence that your file is in good hands and the confidence to allow you to concentrate on the endless other chores on your list of things to do.  


We also provide a comprehensive re-mortgaging service. 


If you are buying a property then we will liaise with your lender and your mortgage broker to try to ensure the smooth issue of your loan cheque and completion of your purchase. 


In particular, if you are a first-time buyer, we understand that you are apprehensive and nervous. This is the probably the biggest thing you've been involved in. We will take the time to answer your questions and to carefully explain how the legal process works.
