We have joined forces with One Direct Advisory, expanding our services to include expert advice across business strategy, finance, corporate structuring, governance and HR. Find out more here.
We’re top to toe property development lawyers.
That means we can help your project from inception through to completion, so you don’t need to different lawyers working on different bits and pieces of your project.
We can help with planning, local government, regulations and approvals.
Then we can help you as you market off-the-plan and get your presales signed up. We’ll document the transactions and make sure that your contracts do what you need.
Of course with the project itself our construction expertise comes into play, helping ensure that you can keep the project on scope and on time.
And finally we can help you finalise the sales, settle the transactions and celebrate another project done and dusted!
Sub-divisions come in all shapes and sizes, from adding a granny flat out the back, to splitting the land to sell one and keep the other, and out the other end into larger projects.
But while sub-division strikes many as a simple option to make a few bucks, there’s a lot of distance to cover before you get to the pot of gold at the end.
We can help you engage consultants for feasibility studies, deal with surveys and road access, prepare and lodge your council applications, and arrange for the property transfers and conveyance.
Of course, if you need it we can also help on the banking and finance side if you want us to review your arrangements and help you get the funding you need to kick the project off.
Look – we understand that nobody really enjoys dredging through 4000 pages of regulations just to find out what clause 5.2.1(a)(iii) of the relevant document says. Luckily, we don’t mind doing it for you.
Any development, sub-division or large project is going to involve a lot of compliance and that’s usually the main focus of our planning and environment work.
That might be impact assessments, land use regulations, heritage listing or due diligence issues that need to be covered off.
It could also include dealing with the complex regulations around contaminated land including statutory audits and dealing with the local EPA.
If you have contaminated land issues we can also help you deal with remediations consultants and give you any advice you might need on liability.
Sometimes people don’t really want you to build the thing you want to build in the way you want to build it.
Sometimes they are your potential neighbours, and other times they are the local council or regulators.
Whatever the case, if you can’t talk it through you might need someone to go to bat for you in the Land and Environment Court.
If you need us to suit up, we’re ready to do it.
Got an idea, not sure of what to do next? Or perhaps the next build is just another in a long list of accomplished developments for you.
Either way, PBL can help you get it done. Give us a call to discuss what you need.
