Types of property law

Lessors and lesees

A lease is a contract between the owner (lessor) and tenant (lessee). Sometimes, disputes can arise regarding this contract. Property is a complex branch of the law, so it's important to hire a professional to help you navigate any official documents.

Make sure you meet legal obligations

Conveyancing is a part of the property buying and selling process. A lawyer who specialises in conveyancing law can protect their client's rights during a title transfer, and make sure all legal obligations are met.

Manage building and construction contracts

When parties enter into a building and construction contract, disputes can arise due to unclear contracts and expectations. A property lawyer can help negotiate disputes and ensure your rights are protected.

Issues with residential or commercial buildings

From disputes about residential boundary lines to issues with building safety, a property lawyer can streamline the legal process and keep the dispute from becoming too expensive and time consuming.

Frequently asked questions

What can a property lawyer do?

A property lawyer can help you with a breadth of work across the property law spectrum in residential and commercial contexts, including but not limited to:

  • Buying and selling
  • Subdiving land
  • Transferring titles
  • Development approval
  • Council regulations
  • Planning regulation certificates
How is a commercial property lease dispute settled?

Sometimes even the most ironclad property leases can fall into dispute. If this happens, one or both parties will seek to remedy the breach of the lease. Here's how this usually happens:

  1. If you are in dispute, be sure to read the wording of your contract closely.
  2. If your lease outlines the issue, consider approaching the other party informally to resolve it.
  3. Try negotiating on the matter, as this is always the fastest and most cost-effective solution.
  4. If this is unsuccessful, you can enter into formal mediation proceedings with the help of a lawyer.
  5. The mediator will issue a certificate as to the outcome of the formal mediation.
  6. If unsuccessful, parties can apply to have their cases heard at a tribunal.
  7. This tribunal will issue orders to parties after hearing the matter.

There are some instances where disputes cannot be resolved by mediation and tribunals. For accurate advice on your specific situation, get in touch with AANDI Lawyers. Our team of expert property lawyers will help you understand which course you should take to reach a successful outcome.

What are some common commercial property lease disputes?

Commercial leases are there to help both parties navigate their legal responsibilities when owning and leasing commercial property. With professional relationships on the line, stakeholders want to reach outcomes that are mutually beneficial.

Here are some of the main disputes that arise in commercial leasing relationships:

  • Tenants not paying rent, leading to the issuing of a Notice of Breach.
  • Landlords refusing to fix an issue that may be affecting the running of the business.
  • Tenants left the premise in disrepair, or in an altered, unoriginal state.
  • Disputes over rent reviews, where either landlords or tenants may demand changes in rent.

If you have a commercial property lease dispute similar to the ones mentioned above, its best to talk to a lawyer. AANDI Lawyers can help you understand your rights and protect your assets.

What's the difference between a conveyancer and a lawyer?

A conveyancer is someone who is trained and qualified to execute the transfer of real estate ownership between people. They can give legal advice, but they are not a licensed, qualified legal professional.

A lawyer, or solicitor, is a specialised legal practitioner who conducts conveyancing on your behalf. They are highly trained, and will use their wealth of property law experience to approach conveyancing issues with an unmatched attention to detail.

AANDI Lawyers has a specialised team of conveyancing lawyers — giving you the best of both worlds. We are able to guide you through every aspect of property transfers, leading to the best possible outcomes for all parties.

What is the conveyancing process?

Conveyancing lawyers are an essential part of the property ownership process. They manage the paperwork that comes with transferring ownership of a legal title of land to a new owner, which can be an individual or an entity.

Here's how the conveyancing process works for a buyer:

  1. The conveyancing process begins when you express interest to buy the property. You should talk to a conveyancing lawyer about what you want to achieve in the conveyancing process.
  2. After the deposit is placed, both parties agree on terms. A conveyancing lawyer can assist with reviewing this contract of sale and advise you of any changes that need to be made.
  3. During settlement, your lawyer can assist with settlement adjustments. At your request, they can also send the seller requisitions on the title — detailed questions about the property.
  4. At settlement date, your lawyer will meet with the seller's representatives, and bank representatives from both parties to exchange documents and the balance of fees and purchase price.
  5. After settlement, your conveyancing lawyer will assist with lodging documents, including transfer of title, transfer of mortgage, and others.

After these steps are complete, you will now be the new owner of the property. This is a fairly complex and convoluted process. However, with professional conveyancing services from AANDI Lawyers, you won't have to worry about a thing.
