Property Development

Our Real Estate lawyers act for a broad range of clients including private developers, large corporate developers, real estate investment trusts and government authorities. Our experience and expertise adds value to a development proposal by making recommendations on and documenting the optimum deal structure for the project, identifying and managing risk and assisting to firm up the development feasibility.

We adopt a ‘concept to completion’ approach to property development. We like to be involved at the initial stage of a project to provide our clients with the benefit of our experience in due diligence, planning and deal structuring. We have a range of precedent documents built up over many years which assist our team in document preparation at all stages of the project including acquisition documents, project structuring, leasing, sales, project delivery and end take out contracts. This whole of project approach allows us to be aware of all aspects of a project and to assist our clients to manage development issues and risks whilst achieving commercial objectives.

We provide development advice on a range of matters including conditional contracts for sale, put and call options, due diligence, leases, agreements for lease, development leases, development agreements, fund through arrangements, joint ventures, student and affordable housing projects, build to rent projects, development approval applications, objections and appeals, environmental and land contamination issues, all regulatory approvals and liaison, native title and aboriginal heritage, GST, title structuring, staged projects, urban renewal and particular development area projects, refurbishment, leasing and re-positioning of investment property across strata title, residential, commercial, office, industrial, hotel, aged care and mixed use developments.
