Conveyancing & Property Law
Conveyancing services at Ballantyne Law Southport, are available at fixed prices with no hidden extras.
Our Southport lawyers have local knowledge of the Southport property market and are well-equipped to review all aspects of the Contract of Sale.
Any special conditions or legal problems affecting the property sales contract can be explained to you in plain English so that you can make informed decisions.
We conduct property searches, liaise with banks and other legal entities, calculate financial commitments, and arrange settlements.
Depending on the specific circumstances of all parties to the transaction, we can provide electronic conveyancing services.
Our other legal services related to commercial and residential property include rent negotiation, conveyancing, dispute resolution, development applications, foreign investment review board applications, and business lease disputes.
We aim to achieve a fair and legally binding agreement for all parties involved.
Commercial Law & Business Transactions
Legal pitfalls and risks are associated with transactions involving even the smallest entities. Such risks are present wherever there are supply agreements, regulatory issues, and restraints on trade.
When there’s a lease in place, when there are employees, and when there is registered intellectual property, legal expertise is required.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to buying or selling a business. Our Southport legal team is ready to help you with this, and many other types of business transactions.
Essential Business Documentation
Sole traders, partnerships, trusts, and companies all have different structures and liabilities. Ballantyne Law Southport can provide expert legal help to businesses at the outset.
A company constitution and shareholder agreement are important documents that set out rights, obligations, and liabilities.
An NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) may also be necessary.
Contact our Southport law firm at your earliest convenience to make sure your business documentation requirements are taken care of.
Business succession plans need to account for different scenarios, including the sale of the business or the departure of a principal.
Our Southport lawyers can help you plan and prepare for any eventuality, including selling your business when there are not enough buyers or the asking price is too high.
Estate planning is another legal service we provide. Working with our Southport lawyers can ensure the efficient and effective transfer of assets upon passing.
In Queensland, a will can be contested on several grounds, including lack of proper execution, lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence or duress, fraud, forgery, family provision claims, blended family disputes, time limits, and executor delays.
With expertise in wills, trusts, estate administration, probate, and letters of administration, our lawyers provide guidance in challenging will/estate litigation, arranging powers of attorney, advance health directives, and managing superannuation and tax implications.
