JK Lawyers can review and provide legal advice regarding your rights and obligations according to the terms and conditions of the contract of sale, and also identify any areas of potential concern or risk that might arise based on the information disclosed by the vendor. We can also negotiate on your behalf to amend the contract in order to better protect your interests.

Other types of property transactions
There are a myriad of circumstances that can give risk to property transactions that are outside of the usual conveyancing process. Such as:
- Related party transfers
Transfers between persons related and or associated with each other.
- Legal personal representative transfer
Transfers from a deceased person to the executor of the estate to allow for sale or distribution in accordance with a Will.
- Trust structures and ownership
For good reason, property can be owned by individuals or in the name of other legal structures, such as trusts, companies, incorporated associations, or charities.
- Changing the nature of ownership
Getting the ownership of property right is important for taxation, inheritance and minimising exposure to the risk of being sued.
JK Lawyers are familiar with these different types of property transactions. We have the expertise to explain the different options, advise you of the implications, and help you to make the best decision for your circumstances.

Sub-Division and Development
Property development is an exciting project that may be small scale or large and complex in nature. It usually involves many steps and sometimes there are multifaceted requirements to be satisfied.
JK Lawyers has previously assisted individuals, companies, and church organisations to navigate through the different stages of the development and construction process. From choosing a competent builder, to advising and drafting construction contracts, even meeting the requirements for planning and building permits, and finally preparing the subdivision application for lodgement with the Land Titles Office to obtain the individual titles for each subdivided lots or strata titled property.
