    Our Practice Areas

    Conveyancing is the term to use for transactions relating to the purchase and sale of real estate in Australia. In New South Wales if you are selling property you are referred to as the "Vendor" and if you are purchasing you are referred to as the "Purchaser".

    We have distinguished property law from conveyancing. Should you be looking for more information regarding the sale or purchase of real estate in either New South Wales or Queensland, please see our conveyancing page.

    The team at Property Law & More have a specific interest in all aspects of wills and estates, and estate planning matters. It is important that all aspects of your succession planning process are considered in detail during your lifetime.

    When a family member passes away this is a very emotional time for loved ones. Once the family has completed the grieving process it will be necessary to turn your attention to the administration of the estate of the deceased person.

    Do you use a “track” or “right of way” to access your property?

    Do you have a legal right to use an access? On 21 November 2019 the New South Wales government passed the Right to Farm Act 2019, which is described in its long title as “an Act to provide for matters relating to farm trespass and the defence of agricultural enterprises; and for other purposes”. In remote and regional areas many people cross across private land on private roads to access their own and other people’s properties. Where this access is by way of an easement, or other private arrangement, and the access is not by way of a publicly gazetted road, the provisions of the Inclosed Land Protection Act may apply. The Right to Farm Act has amended the Inclosed Land Protection Act to include a new definition of agricultural land. This definition is broad and will cover most rural type land. The Rights to Farm Act also amends Inclosed Land Protection Act to make it an offence for anyone who crosses over any of the agricultural land not to close any gates that they may encounter. The penalty for failing to close a gate now carries a maximum penalty of a fine of $1650.00. In addition, if any person crossing over the land willfully or negligently allows stock to escape this also carries a potential penalty of $22,000 and/or 12 months imprisonment. Therefore, it is important to remember when passing over rural roads, even if you believe you are on a public road, if you encounter a gate that is closed you should assume that there will be livestock that it is preventing from escaping and ensure that the gate is closed again once you have passed through it. Failure to do so may result in unwanted consequences.

    Rethink that Last Drink

    New laws came into effect on Monday 3 December 2018 in relation to drink driving offences. As a result of these changes it means that first time offenders who record a blood alcohol reading in the mid-range (that is a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more, but less than 0.15) as well as receiving a mandatory licence disqualification of at least a minimum of 3 months will also be obligated to participate in a mandatory Alcohol Interlock Program for a period of up to 12 months. This means having a machine fitted to any motor vehicle the offender intends to drive while ever they remain obligated to participate in the program. The reforms also extend to first time high range drink driving where the licence disqualification periods are longer and the time that the offender must participate in the Interlock Program are also longer. If the offender fails to install an Interlock device in their motor vehicle and participate in the program their licence will be disqualified for a period of 5 years. The costs of having the interlock devices fitted to the vehicle can be costly. In addition, the devices require calibration at least every three months and there are additional cost each time this service needs to be performed. The government is becoming frustrated with the endless stream of drink drivers that are flowing through New South Wales Courts. The evidence also suggest that the likelihood of being involved in a motor vehicle accident once you reach the mid-range of blood alcohol concentration is more then four times of that of a person who has a zero blood alcohol level. Drivers can no longer adopt a theory that if they have not been caught drink driving before that they will escape penalty when they come before a Court. How Magistrates implement the changes to the drink driving laws will become more clear over time. However, this Christmas the team at Property Law and More suggest that you rethink that next drink.
