The conveyancing of property from one party to another by an attorney not only protects the rights of the individuals or legal entities involved in the transaction but establishes a framework within which the ownership of such property may be undertaken. A simple example of this may be a provision in a sale agreement where issues like land use or zoning are stipulated.

Property Law Experts for a Range of Matters

Generally, property law deals with the ownership, rights and responsibilities, transfer, sale, and utilisation of property. These provisions include matters like:

  • Sale of property and transfer of ownership
  • Securities, deposits, credit, and other transactional agreements
  • Rentals and leases
  • Foreclosures and repossessions
  • Deceased estates and inheritances
