Property, leasing & real estate agency disputes

Property development and management is our core business and our developer clients rely on us just as much for our know-how on preventative strategies as for our expertise when a dispute becomes unavoidable and we’re called on to fight for our clients.

Often apart from the immediate commercial impact of the dispute, property disputes can involve a range of constituents and interests which need to be appropriately managed including planning and environment, public relations and investor stakeholder concerns.

Our seasoned dispute resolution and litigation team have the experience and capacity to manage all forms of property disputes including complex multi-party property disputes with significant e-discovery requirements and multi-disciplinary expert engagement.

Our property dispute portfolio includes landlord and retail tenants, mortgagees, real estate agents and owners corporation managers who we regularly advise concerning retail and residential leases, mortgages and security interests, property and common property management issues and the statutory minefield for agents that is the Estate Agents Act 1980.

Our property dispute resolution experience includes:

  • misleading and deceptive conduct in property transactions
  • complex contamination and remediation litigation
  • termination and forfeiture of deposits under contracts of sale
  • retail lease disputes and rent recovery
  • retail lease land tax disputes
  • termination of leases and relief against forfeiture
  • recovery of rent and rental disputes
  • lot owner disputes under an owners corporation
  • owners corporation administration and VCAT intervention
  • real estate agent commission recovery and disputes
  • mortgagee recovery proceedings
