We have a deep understanding of the residential market, having regularly acted for a variety of major listed, multinational and private developers, as well as financiers, government entities and community housing providers.
Our team brings an experienced, coordinated and holistic approach to ensure that initial decisions relating to structuring and risk allocation are complimentary to the development and sales objectives.
In mixed-use projects, effective structured titles are particularly critical to the initial transaction structure and the ongoing sale, management and operation of components of a project. Effective titling is required to cater for the particular requirements of a development including the anticipated infrastructure and shared facilities, balanced in a manner so as not to adversely affect marketability. We have market-leading expertise in the full spectrum of structured title including community and strata title, building management statements and neighbourhood schemes.
We also have an excellent track record of acting on major mixed-use, apartment, greenfield and community developments, allowing us to leverage our experience to deliver the best outcome for our client.
