Property Law

We act in the following areas in respect of real estate property:

  • Purchase and Sale Agreements;
  • Property Lease Agreements;
  • Joint Venture Agreements;
  • Joint Ownership Agreements;
  • Property duty (i.e. Stamp Duty) issues;
  • Land use issues;
  • WA Planning matters;
  • Easements;
  • Mortgages;
  • Rights of way;
  • Restrictive covenants;
  • Caveats;
  • Options;
  • First right of refusal;
  • Property Development Agreements.

We also act as settlement agents on the sale and purchase of property.  We charge the settlement agent’s rate.  Thus you have the advantage of having your settlement carried out by a law firm but charged at the same rates as settlement agent’s charge.

If you wish to know our charges for settlement and the associated duty and other costs, please see our Fact Sheet on property settlements.


Property Settlements - Conveyancing

In Western Australia, conveyancing is the transfer of legal title of real estate or land from one person to another.

A typical conveyancing transaction comprises the entering into a contract for the sale of land (through the signing of an offer and acceptance by the buyer and seller), financial settlement (exchange of money and documents) and registration of the transfer and other documents onto the Register of Land Ownership held by Landgate.

At Granich Partners, Jayne Trenka handles all conveyancing matters in respect of all types of property (residential, rural and commercial) for all areas of metro Perth and across Western Australia. 

Jayne has considerable experience acting as conveyancer for both our metro and rural farming clients and has support in such matters from Alex Granich who has over 40 years’ experience in the area of property law.  Having Jayne and Alex attend to property settlements within our firm means that our clients have the benefit of a conveyancer and solicitor on hand during any transaction.  Engaging our firm to act as your agent in a settlement means that we can attend to any legal issues that may arise in the course of your transaction immediately.

Whether you are buying or selling a house, unit, vacant land, commercial property, rural farming land, Granich Partners are able to assist at no greater cost than any other conveyancer unconnected with a law firm.
