Top Real Estate Lawyers in Sydney
Green & Associates provides an all-inclusive legal service for real estate agencies in the City of Sydney and Eastern Suburbs area.
We know how important it is for real estate agents to be able to refer their clients to a law firm who will provide a high-quality, efficient and cost-effective service for their property matter. In the game of property, reputation is everything, and Green & Associates is the firm that agents trust to look after their clients, deliver them a good result and reflect well on their agency’s high standards of professionalism and excellence.
We are experts at liaising with agents and their clients to draft contracts in a quick and efficient manner and are able to work at a fast pace in the lead-up to an auction when requests for amendments from multiple parties are being made. We can also facilitate exchange via Docusign and are highly proficient in the use of PEXA so all settlements run smoothly with no unexpected surprises.
If you are acting as a buyer’s agent for a first homebuyer, we are experts at guiding firsts home buyers through the purchase process, including providing a detailed advice on the contract (including recommendations for amendments), providing useful information regarding stamp duty exemptions and concessions and working with a client’s bank to make sure that everything is in order for their settlement.
We understand that real estate agents value quick turnarounds and commercially-minded advice and we are adept at working with agents and their clients at every step of the way on their property deal.
We also provide in-house advice to real estate agencies on a range of matters including:
- employment-law issues (i.e. enforcing or dispute a restraint of trade clause for previous or new employees);
- compliance and regulatory issues (i.e. licencing and underquoting breaches)
- criminal matters;
- defamation proceedings; and
- all types of commercial matters (i.e. drafting shareholder agreements).
We are always available on the phone if you had a question about one of your matters or needed a quick advice about any issue and you are always welcome to swing by our office for an in-person conference. Being a boutique firm, we pride ourselves on our personalised service and touch, and should you engage us as your lawyers we will become your trusted partners and advisers.
