Property Law

The lawyers at Lynn & Brown are experienced in providing advice on various areas of Property Law, including property investment, loan guarantees, planning, building contracts and commercial property. We pride ourselves in providing valuable, detailed advice to ensure your property matters are legally binding. Our lawyers can help you whatever your property type, at any point during the process, smoothly and effectively.

Purchasing or selling a property

We can assist with making sure you fully understand the details involved with residential or commercial transactions in Australia. Anything from agreements and contracts, to buying or selling at auction and negotiating on your behalf can be handled by our experienced lawyers.

  • If you are a property developer and need assistance with large scale commercial projects;
  • If you are a property developer and need assistance with subdivision and the creation of easements;
  • If you need assistance with council or development approvals;
  • If you are a lender or borrower requiring advice on residential mortgage transactions and commercial loan transactions;
  • If you need any advice regarding strata title and strata management.

The requirement for a lawyer is often not limited to transaction matters. Dispute resolution around boundaries, neighbour issues and council approvals, are all often required as a property owner.

Circumstances where these issues usually arise include the following.

  • When you are developing your property;
  • On older properties with semi-permanent boundaries;
  • In council areas with tight development rulings;
  • With the boundary or development disputes with a neighbour; or
  • When you own a property with someone else and one party wants to sell (Partitioning Agreement).

We understand that there are sometimes basic, hassle free property matters. However, we have dealt with many clients who have been surprised at the ease of having a lawyer handle the entire process. Consider:

  • Conveyancers are not equipped to deal with more complicated matters, such as disputes and ownership.
  • If the other party has a lawyer too, this can make for much more efficient and stress free communication.
  • Life can often throw unexpected curve balls, especially in high stake matters such as property transactions. Lynn and Brown lawyers have experience dealing with the unforeseen.

Frequently Asked Questions

Contracts, which you might not have noticed, are everywhere in our life. From simple sale and purchase, service supply, property leasing, to employment, banking and investments. Like many of us, you may have been stuck in a contract before and wanted to get out. Can I? You may wonder. There are different ways to end a contract. However, contracts are binding legal instruments, so a free exit ticket may not always be available.
One of the most satisfying tasks we perform at Lynn and Brown Lawyers is to work with our clients to either purchase or sell a business. We all know how stressful it is buying or selling a property and hoping to achieve a successful outcome. These stresses are no different to those that exist around buying or selling a business, particularly if that business is one you have built from scratch or the business that you are looking to buy is as a result of a significant lifestyle change or ambition for the next stage of your career.
A shareholders’ agreement is a contract signed by the shareholders of a company, which regulates their obligations and rights, as well as what should happen if certain situations arise. Unlike a company constitution, (which is automatically binding on all members) a shareholders’ agreement is only binding on the shareholders who sign it – just like any other contract. Since shareholders’ agreements are not compulsory, there are no requirements as to how they must be written.
Thinking of starting a business? Especially in this ever-changing age of COVID-19, the sparks of inspiration that pave the way to becoming a business owner are kaleidoscopically diverse: like many Australians, you may have suddenly found yourself without a steady income; you may have found you loved working from home and having extra time with your family; perhaps you’ve decided to start a “side hustle” to your main career, or after many years of contemplation, you’ve decided to seize the day (and a great opportunity!) and pursue your dreams.
A good lawyer, with experience, can often foresee things others could not. Sometimes there is nothing you can do about an unforeseeable event happening after you agree to a contract, but there are some things you can do to ensure your contract is as well drafted as possible.
If you are thinking of starting a business, you will need to consider the different business structures available to you and work out which structure will best suit your needs. In Australia, businesses are commonly structured as sole traders, companies, partnerships, discretionary trusts and unit trusts. It is important to seek professional advice (from a lawyer, accountant, or business adviser) before deciding which business structure to use.

A franchise is usually in the form of a written franchise agreement. However, franchises are regulated under the Franchising Code of Conduct (the Code), which is given the force of law under the Competitions and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth). The Code specifies both the franchisors’ and franchisees’ rights and responsibilities
