The Residential Property division deals with the laws around buying or selling property. It differs from commercial property as it must have a place of residence – a home – on the land. These transactions can be a maze of documents. It can be confusing to know your rights and responsibilities as a homeowner, tenant or landlord. It’s vital to have a big picture perspective and to understand the long-term effects to avoid poor choices and later disputes.

Frank Law believes that property should be a decision made with great confidence, not in confusion. Therefore, we journey with you in the excitement of buying or selling residential property. Likewise, we will guide you through the process and keep you informed of every step. We understand that buying or selling a home is a milestone moment, a chapter marker of your life. We aim to make this transition smooth and stress-free.

Our team will celebrate with you in the successes of your property decisions.

How We Can Help

Legal Advice on the Contract of Sale

In order to protect your rights as a vendor or purchaser, we offer legal advice on the contract of sale.

For purchasers, we obtain searches and enquires to confirm that the property you are looking at purchasing does not have other parties interested.

For vendors, we ensure the additional clauses in the Contract of Sale reflect all your legal rights for a smooth and efficient sale of the property.

Electronic Transactions via PEXA

Frank Law embraces new technologies and performs electronic transactions via PEXA. We are unique in the integration of this technology. PEXA guarantees that all documents are lodged on settlement, and that settlement occurs on time, therefore reducing the risk of errors and delays.

An Understanding of the Relationship between Family Law and Residential Property

Frank Law provides sound advice on both Residential Property and Family Law matters. We understand the connection between the two divisions and the two teams work collaboratively to assist you in the overlapping areas. We work efficiently when family division occurs, in order to settle property and help you move forward in a timely matter.
