Dividing Fence Disputes

Our property disputes lawyers can provide legal advice relating to your dividing fence dispute and help you to understand your rights and obligations by law.

Lease Disputes

Lease disputes arise in both residential and commercial leases and are a common type of property dispute between a landlord and tenant/tenants. From failure to pay rent to property damage on the leased premises, our team of lease dispute lawyers can advise on your options as the lessor or lessee.

Adverse Possession

Adverse possession disputes usually arise when a dividing fence was not built on the legal boundary or in cases where there is no dividing fence or boundary marker on the land. This results in one party occupying and using some of the land of the other party. Our adverse possession lawyers can provide sound advice relating to the legitimacy of your adverse possession claim or assist with opposing a claim of adverse possession on your land.

Strata Title Disputes

Property disputes are common between strata title owners as well as between owners and the strata company itself. Our strata dispute lawyers provide sound legal advice and representation when required.

Easements are an allowance for a non-owner of a property to use it for a specific purpose. Our easement lawyers have advised on a range of property matters including easement disputes to help clients understand their legal position.

  • Absolutely blown away by Paul Summers. Despite being new to property development and not knowing a lot about Shareholders/Joint venture Agreements etc he took me seriously and invested his time to help and guide me in the right direction. Other lawyers, I called just put me in the too hard basket. Definitely recommend his service.
