Property Law

What Is Property Law?
Australian property law governs the rights, interests,responsibilities and legal rights of individuals and entities in relation to property. “Property” in this instance may mean physical property, such as land or real estate, or intellectual property, such as creative works. Most people seeking the assistance of property lawyers in Australia are hoping to handle matters of conveyance, such as to transfer the legal title of real property (a piece of real estate) from one person to another or grant an encumbrance (such as a mortgage).

How Can My Lawyers Help?
We can assist you in understanding the Torrens system of land registration, which governs most privately owned land in Australia. We can also aid you in dealing with matters regarding unregistered land (general law land). Whether you wish to purchase, sell, or rent out a piece of property, we have the legal expertise you need to do so safely and cost-effectively.
