Some of our key conveyancing services include:
- Buying a freehold or leasehold property
- Renting and letting properties
- Selling a freehold or leasehold property
- Transfer of ownership

Our property and conveyancing solicitors are here to help guide you through the various steps, such as strata, mortgages and guarantors. For more information, please see our Property and Conveyancing Solicitors page.
From investment planning, retirement planning to estate planning, we go through several stages of financial planning in our lives. Estate planning is the process of going through everything you own and setting out how you want to distribute your things after you’re gone. Generally, you can use both a will and a trust to create complete estate planning. Talk to us if you have questions concerning estate planning.
