Property Disputes in Sydney

Any property dispute is challenging due to the large sums of money being involved, as well as a myriad of other reasons. Such disputes often impact close personal relationships. We understand that our clients need clear legal advice about their options. Fortunately, our property dispute lawyers in Sydney have seen almost every type of case. We think carefully about strategy but are determined to enforce and defend our client’s positions.

Some examples of property disputes in which we have extensive working knowledge are:

  • Family Property Disputes, where family members disagree as to who to “who owns what”, including in circumstances where there is a deceased estate.
  • Commercial / Retail Lease Disputes, including lockout situations, non-payment of rent, issues with the lease premises (including roofing disputes). We act for both landlords and tenants.
  • Disputes about Caveats, including determining whose caveat ranks higher than another caveat.
  • Compulsory Acquisition of Land, including when a government authority seeks to acquire land/buildings or does something to affect your land/buildings. Compensation is also available for displaced business owners. We have achieved outstanding results for our clients in obtaining compensation from the various authorities.
  • Development Disputes, including issues with builders, business partners, , neighbour disputes and planning disputes.
  • Off-the-Plan Purchase Disputes – we have been able to get many purchasers out of contracts of sale.
  • Property Damage
  • Vendor & Purchaser Disputes when buying/selling property, including when a vendor is alleged to have misled a purchaser (for example, non-disclosure of a material fact) or if a buyer is unable to settle.
  • Adverse Possession of Land, including where a fence line is not (or allegedly not) in the place that the survey plan indicates that it should be, and determining what rights each neighbour typically has the many options available to both parties. This is a type of land ownership dispute.
  • Owners Corporation Disputes, including property defects, disputes about common property and building management.
  • Fencing Disputes, including enforcing fencing notices

If litigation is required, we have extensive experience in handling a variety of complex property litigation cases and can represent you in the Supreme Court of NSW, District Courts, the Local Courts and NCAT.

Our experience across multiple practice areas, in addition to property law, is helpful in achieving advantageous outcomes for our clients.
