Q Why should I have a lawyer prepare my contract when selling the commercial property?

Contracts for the sale of Commercial properties can be quite complex with a range of warranties (promises) made by the Seller to the Buyer. Throughout the life of the contract, the Buyer may obtain a right of termination if these warranties are revealed to be untrue.

Q I want to buy a commercial property but I’m unsure which of my entities to purchase it in. Can I still enter into a contract now?

Buyer’s will often attend an auction at short notice to bid on a property. The Buyer is successful at the auction only to discover from their accountant that the proposed buying entity is incorrect, maybe for taxation of asset protection reasons. It is possible to change the entity purchasing the property but this should be conducted and the appropriate documentation prepared so as not to incur double Transfer Duty on the transaction.

Q What are the benefits of using a law firm for debt recovery and not a debt collection agency?

That depends on the law firm that is engaged and the way that they calculate their fees. Our estimate of costs is given to you up-front and there are no hidden costs. You also have immediate access to a range of highly experienced and qualified lawyers in many fields of law should your matter become more complex due to the actions of the Debtor or the terms of the transaction, and we can act for you in the court proceedings.

Q All of my assets are jointly owned – do I need a will?

If all of your assets are jointly owned, then in most cases they will pass to the surviving owner irrespective of what your Will says. That said, it is still useful to have a Will in the event that you become the sole owner of those assets or any of those assets are held as tenants in common (allowing each owner to deal with their own interest) rather than as joint tenants.
