Frequently asked questions

Do I have to engage a lawyer if I am involved in a property dispute?

A lawyer is not necessarily required to resolve property disputes, but because significant amounts of money are often involved and because property law is complex, having an experienced lawyer in your corner providing you with practical advice can greatly assist in achieving a commercially sound resolution more quickly (and with a minimisation of stress and cost).

What can a property lawyer do?

A property lawyer can help in a variety of ways, including by resolving disputes between (for example) landlords and lessees, trustees and beneficiaries, banks and borrowers, and buyers and sellers.

They can explain (in a simple and straightforward way) the law and procedures involved in dealing with a property law matter, helping to remove the stress and guesswork.

Tasks may include:
• reviewing and advising on the clauses of a commercial lease;
• helping land owners navigate the development process;
• helping parties overcome hurdles in property transactions;
• negotiating a resolution between parties in property loan matters; and
• ensuring beneficiaries receive their property entitlements in a trust matter.

What sorts of property dispute matters have we handled?

Gibbs Wright has handled a diverse range of property dispute matters. These have included acting:
• for a home buyer whose bank missed settlement and the seller terminated the contract — we were able to have the deposit returned to the buyer (with interest), plus the difference in the price they then had to pay to obtain another property;
• for a home buyer whose property was given a satisfactory report from a pest inspector despite the property having significant termite damage; and
• on behalf of builders and property owners in the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal.
These are just some examples of the work our property disputes lawyers have handled. Talk to us today to see if we can help you.

Will I need to go to court for my property dispute?

Court proceedings can be costly, time consuming and stressful. Our lawyers at Gibbs Wright will always attempt to negotiate a resolution before recommending your matter be litigated in a court.

What is the Gibbs Wright process?

At Gibbs Wright, we work closely with you to determine the best plan for your particular circumstances, taking into account your finances and your expectations.

We will walk you through each step of the journey, which begins with a free initial discussion to assess the strength of your case and your legal options.

We will request key documents from you, such as a contract or emails to assess this. If we determine that we can help you, we can provide a fixed fee or an estimate of fees, depending on the expected cost and complexity of the matter. If you agree with our proposed strategy, we will vigorously pursue (or defend) your claim on your behalf.

Where can we help you?

We are well versed and experienced in property legislation matters for Queensland. Our property dispute lawyers can help you in Brisbane as well as throughout the state.
