Disputes over properties and caveats

If you are having a legal issue involving any real estate transaction, commercial or residential you will need advice from experienced Perth Property Lawyers.

We provide advice on and handle all disputes over sale contracts, termination of sale contracts, leases, whether parties have the ability to lodge a caveat over a property and removal of caveats under Section 138B of the Transfer of Land Act 1893 (WA).

We can provide legal advice on whether you have the right to lodge a caveat over their property and arrange for the caveat to be lodged.

Our rates and fixed prices are lower than the prices charged by many Perth Commercial law firms because we own our offices so we don't pay the exorbitant St George's Tce rent that many commercial law firms do.  

We can act for parties in commercial and civil litigation on the basis of a fixed, affordable, fee paid monthly as opposed to charging an hourly rate.  If we are engaged on that basis you can pay a set fee, often at a discounted rate, in return for us remaining on the record as acting for you in the action for a fixed period.  During that fixed period we will represent you and deal with whatever matters arise in the litigation during that time, including all court appearances and drafting of all court documents.

Our lawyers and law clerks work closely with our selected commercial barristers and work that can be done at lower hourly rates is always done at those rates.

Further information can be found here regarding our fixed fees.

We provide legal advice on the full range of property law issues and disputes. We issue default notices pursuant to leases on behalf of private land owners and small and larger companies. We take instructions from real estate agents for the preparation of default notices and summonses for collection of rent and evictions.

We prepare all property contract documentation including leases, personal guarantees and contracts of sale.  We handle disputes between investors and property developers as well as claims against government and preparation of caveats as security.

We can advise you if you are worried about a joint property investment with others or if you are part of a property development syndicate and have concerns about your security.

We can also assist in the following areas:

  • Sales and Acquisitions

  • Commercial and Retail Leasing

  • Construction Contracts

  • Easements, Covenants and other Encumbrances

  • Tenant/Landlord Disputes

  • Default Notices
