Property Sales and Purchases

Our Property Team, led by Frances Kennedy, advises both residential and commercial property clients, from the first-time buyer to the experienced developer. Our approach to any property transaction is proactive, transparent and solutions driven.

Buying or selling a property can be a daunting project. With the wrong legal advisors, the process can become drawn out and frustrating. We aim to identify potential title issues early so that they can be dealt in an efficient manner without undue delay.

Our service is fully transparent and responsive, helping our clients to fully understand the process. We endeavour to make the client experience as smooth and stress free as possible by taking over the responsibility for directly liaising with the auctioneers, engineers, architects and banks.

We are your one-stop shop for all commercial property transactions.

We advise our client on all stages, including corporate structuring, financing, lender negotiation, title review, site purchasing, planning, development & fit-out contracts, leasing and sales.

We advise on landlord and tenant matters including: lease and licensing agreements; landlord consent applications and negotiations; assignments and sub-leases; lease repudiation and forfeiture applications.

Our contentious services include advising clients on any issues arising from the management of their properties, including dispute resolution, debt collection, the issuing of court proceedings and implementing re-entry by the landlord.
