Types of Property Law
Property law involves the various issues that relate to a person’s ownership, interest in or occupation of land (or real estate).
From assisting in the sale or purchase of real estate (contracts and conveyancing) to handling matrimonial property settlement and administering deceased estates (probate and letters of administration) there are a range of legal matters in which we represent you to secure and protect your rights and interests in land.
Land ownership can also give rise to issues involving neighbouring properties such as fencing disputes, overhanging trees and other nuisances.
We can act for you in cases involving the development and management of land or the enforcement of laws relating to land which are heard in the Environment, Resources and Development Court.
Perhaps you have an interest in land owned by someone else. You might be entitled to lodge a caveat over the land to prevent the owner from selling or otherwise dealing with the property and we can advise you on whether that option is available to you and help you to protect your interest in that way.
