Let’s take a quick look at some common property disputes a property lawyer in Chatswood may assist with.

Co-Owner Disputes

Co-ownership of land can bring about disputes as co-owners may have different ideas on what they want to do with a particular property and how to manage it.

Co-owners may also face a disagreement if one co-owner pays more expenses than another or does more work than other.

A good way to manage the expectations of co-owners is to create a contract or written agreement for all co-owners of a property, prior to entering into the purchase.

A property lawyer in Chatswood can assist with putting together an agreement of this sort, or reading through an agreement for a potential co-owner of a property.

Doing this can help to avoid future disputes and clearly outlines each party’s rights and obligations from the outset.

It’s also important to understand if the co-ownership is set up as a joint tenant or a tenant in common, as both structures have slightly different set ups which can impact the way the property is dealt with in general and what happens after the death of a co-owner. See here our article which further explains these two terms.

  • Assisting landlords with any tenancy related dispute, including payment of rent or damage to the property
