HHG Legal Group As A Law Firm
We have almost a century of legal property expertise in sales and acquisitions of metropolitan and regional real estate in Western Australia, acting for a variety of stakeholders in the transaction process.
Acting on sales and acquisitions of real estate for our clients requires a broad range of expertise in providing property advice, legal property due diligence, preparing, negotiating contracts, drafting special conditions, and we have this expertise for a range of real estate including CBD buildings, shopping centres, strata developments, rural property and broad acre subdivisions.
We are regularly engaged by our clients early in the acquisition process to advise on the most appropriate structures for their real estate acquisitions. This involves our dedicated team providing not only property advice and assistance with legal property due diligence, but also advice on duty, tax and revenue. Similarly, our clients who are disposing of property find it very valuable to engage us for the preparation of contracts of sale, drafting special conditions and negotiation. Even if they have engaged a real estate agent for the sale.
We have a depth of experience navigating the regulatory and statutory framework in WA and achieving outcomes in dealing with bodies such as Landgate, the Office of State Revenue, relevant government departments such as Department of Planning and Infrastructure and local government.
