Uncovered Omissions and Unfavourable Clauses

“As a first home buyer, I was very grateful to have your general tips for buyers and specific advice on the contract of sale. Your pre-purchase inspection of the contract uncovered some omissions and unfavourable clauses. I now feel more confident knowing that I don’t simply have to accept the vendor’s conditions without question. I am looking forward to putting your advice into action.” Nicole B. – Thornbury, Victoria

Your Website and Blog Arms the Consumer

“I have been checking your blog from time to time (have added it to my collection of other political and special interest sites I visit from time to time)… I saw your article on insurance problems (Is The Property Insurable? A Trap For The Unwary!) with flood zone sites and the highlighted need for document checking… I realised it was about my enquiry as to (a property was considering) a few weeks ago. Sure enough...

Put me in Control

“I think the real estate agent felt the deal was slipping through his fingers. It’s pretty amazing to listen to these guys when their commission is on the line. They will spin any line or story possible to get you to accept an offer etc. Once again I am sure glad I found your website and the advice contained on there. It certainly has put me in control of this transaction and for that I...

Your Fixed Pricing was Appreciated

“I am writing to thank you for your assistance in my recent attempts at purchasing real estate. Although unsuccessful in my offers, I appreciate the time you took in giving me pre-contract advice, preparing the safety contract note and explaining the contract note to me. I was referred to you by a work colleague, who recommended you for a number of reasons, primarily because there was no requirement for a face to face meeting. This...

Accommodate Our Requirements

“Thanks for your pre-purchase advice which we found extremely useful. We did manage to make changes to the contract based on the advice you gave, so we feel happy that we are in a better position than we would potentially have been. I also found your advice regarding the auction process very useful. Having never bought at auction we were a little unsure of what to expect, even though we have done some research on...

Knowledge is Power

“Knowledge is power. Section 32s are confusing if you’re not an expert. Mum’s advice? ‘Get yourself a lawyer’. In only a few hours, Lawyers Conveyancing sent me a thorough 25 page report about a property I was interested in, highlighting the covenants that could seriously affect my family’s future. The report also gave me the confidence to deal with real estate agents. I don’t feel like a babe in the woods any more and I...

You saved me a lot of money

“…you saved me a hell a lot of money by advising me not to purchase a property in Moonee Ponds earlier this year in January. That is, the realestate agent told me that the driveway right outside the single gargage was on the title but it cleary wasn’t, and I wasn’t able to park my car in the gargage anyway because the gargage was full of shelving for storage…” Analiza C. – Moonee Ponds

Excellent and Very Professional Service

“I would just like to acknowledge the excellent and very professional service that I received from your firm and in particular from two of your employees, Leonie Tonkin and Nicole Scott when I was getting both pre-purchase advice for 3 houses and completing pre-settlement requirements for the property I eventually purchased.  Every question that I raised was not only answered and explained in clear, non-legal language, which made it very easy for a layman like...

Absolutely Fantastic

“Absolutely fantastic. Right from the beginning the team was very professional and extremely helpful. I purchased my first property. The first person I spoke to was Jeanette who was very helpful when I was filling out the form on the internet. Lee-Anne completed all my conveyancing . I cannot thank her enough for making my experience so pleasant. I have heard so many people tell me that their are always problems with settlement. Not here....
