Property Law

Property Law is about the individual’s rights, interests and responsibilities relating to property.  The two main subsets of property are ‘real’ or ‘personal’. ‘Real’ property refers to land and buildings and the like. ‘Personal’ property is moveable property and is sometimes referred to as chattels.

Personal property includes tangible property (things that can be touched or felt like a car, or musical instrument, etc) and intangible property includes things such as a chose in action, securities, intellectual property, and negotiable instruments.  A chose in action is essentially a right to sue.

The Brad Robin Legal Centre can assist you with a variety of services relating to your property, including  conveyancing (buying and selling property), protecting your rights and interests in relation to your property, succession and estate planning, tenancy disputes or any other matter involving your property.

Wills & Estates, Succession and Estate Planning

How is your Estate going to be distributed upon your death?

Who will make decisions on your behalf if you become unable to make those decisions?

Estate Planning is more than just deciding on who your property will be distributed to upon your death. A complete Estate Plan will include things like who will make the decisions about your property and your health should you become unable to do so and  the distribution of your property upon your death.

A Will is a legal document that sets out how your assets and property will be distributed following your death. The best way to ensure that your property is distributed according to your wishes is to have a valid, clear and up-to-date Will. Without a Will your property may not be distributed in the way that you want, and it may cause undue hardship and cost to your family.

A Power of Attorney is a legal document that appoints a person as your attorney, giving them the legal authority to manage your financial affairs. There are a number of situations where you may consider appointing an attorney, such as taking an extended overseas trip, or if you become unable to manage your affairs because of an accident or other health reasons. The Brad Robins Legal Centre can help you identify the type of attorney service to suit your needs.

When it comes to making decisions about your future health care, an Advanced Health Directive provides a formal way of giving instructions for your future health care. An Advanced Health Directive only comes into effect if you are unable to make your own decisions. Whilst you still have the decision-making capacity to do so, you can change or revoke an Advanced Health Directive at any time.

Some of the service our team can help you with include:

  • Preparing a will.
  • Planning your estate including the establishment of a trust if you wish.
  • Administering your estate and executorial duties for your Will
  • Preparation of a Power of Attorney or Enduring Power of Attorney
  • Preparation of an Advanced Health Directive
