It is appropriate to discuss development alongside strata, as it is from development that strata is typically born. Our Strata Lawyers know that each phase has unique considerations.

For both development and strata it is important to obtain the right advice at the right time. Our strata lawyers ensure that you understand your obligations and any potential risks, as well as provide expert oversight on all technical considerations and documents. We protect your interests and help you realise your intentions.
I was a little cautious about lawyers generally, even more so since I was embarking on my very first development. A referral to Gavel & Page Lawyers let me put my previous concerns behind me. Open. Direct. Clear communication. Detailed and productive advice. Competitive fees. Down to earth and contactable. Not sure what else you need.
Constructing a landmark development has its own stresses. It was such a pleasure to know that Gavel & Page Lawyers had thought of everything for us from a legal perspective, allowing us to focus on the construction of the development. They were very easy to deal with and always contactable.They drafted all the off the plan contracts for the sale of the 100 residential units, drafted our subcontracts, negotiated Agreements to Lease and the Leases, were available weekends in attending the project’s launch and competently advised us on all issues along the way including construction issues. They made the sale of the units and leasing the retail/commercial spaces seem as simple as selling a house and their services came at a very competitive price. In short, the quality of their service was next to none.
Gavel & Page Lawyers are now our “go to” firm for any contract or property related transactions. They were referred by a family friend and we were not disappointed. They reviewed all the documents and advised us on all the issues surrounding our purchase of a commercial property, ensuring the transaction ran smoothly and relieving a lot of the stress involved They also reviewed, drafted and settled commercial terms which were fundamental to our business. They explained the terms in a way that helped us understand their implications and significance which was of great benefit. A pleasure to deal with, down-to-earth, reliable, efficient and competent. Great job! Highly recommended!
