About Property Law

Property Law focuses on the broad issues related to real property. Property practitioners require a good understanding of:

  • the conveyancing process and the issues which can arise;
  • owners corporations;
  • subdivisions;
  • taxes and duties that are levied on real property;
  • mortgages and securities;
  • property development and interaction with planning law;
  • leasing law;
  • statutory restrictions affecting real property; and
  • matters affecting title and interest, including adverse possession and compulsory acquisition.

Property Law Accredited Specialisation

The Property Law Accredited Specialisation program has operated since 1994.  Accreditation recognises that Property Law Specialists demonstrate superior knowledge, experience and proficiency and provides confidence to those engaging accredited Property Law Specialists of their enhanced skill levels and expertise in property law.  Components of the assessment program test both written and advocacy skills, as well as requiring a demonstration of deep legal knowledge.  For further information on becoming an Accredited Property Law Specialist, see here.  For a list of Accredited Property Law Specialists, see here.
