Commercial Property

Profitable property transactions

For investors and developers, commercially-sound legal advice, coupled with negotiation expertise and efficient processes underpinned by specialist knowledge, are the key to a successful and profitable commercial property transaction.  Our specialist property lawyers have an in-depth understanding of the Cairns and North Queensland property market and can advise you on the wide ranging and complex areas of property law which impact that market.  We can help you avoid loss of sales and delays which rapidly escalate cost, potentially meaning the difference between a successful project and a disaster.

Our experience in property transactions as well as property litigation, allows us to provide practical advice and to highlight unforeseen pitfalls in what may be, one of your largest purchase or investment decisions.

We offer legal advice and services for:

Acquisitions and sales

Miller Harris Lawyers can provide expert legal advice on the sale, purchase and leasing of residential, industrial, commercial and retail properties to ensure that your commercial investment is sound and structured for growth.

Due diligence

From planning and title considerations to environmental and tenancy concerns, Miller Harris Lawyers can assist your project by conducting an appropriate investigation of the opportunity prior to you being committed to proceed.

Community titles

Miller Harris Lawyers knows community title law inside out. We can advise on management rights, structuring new projects, dealing with disputes, by-laws and the variety of other issues which arise from these schemes.

Development approvals and appeals

We can help guide you through the development approval process, negotiate development conditions and deal with any appeals to the Planning and Environment Court.

Mortgage and finance

We can help you to understand your contractual obligations relating to any mortgages and finance arrangements for your commercial property development.

Easements

Ill-conceived or poorly prepared easements can cause enormous problems in property developments. Miller Harris Lawyers is able to provide advice and prepare documents to help you avoid these issues and, we can also help you resolve any existing problems.

Subdivisions

We can assist your subdivision project from site due diligence and acquisition, through to titling and settlement of the sale of the lots. We have done so, for literally thousands of lots, in a variety of projects over many years. We understand the development process and the various issues which often arise - not just the legal issues. Let our knowledge and expertise be your peace of mind.
