Property Lawyers

Types of real estate disputes we can help you with

We can help resolve disputes between any parties involved in a real estate transaction. A dispute could be, for example, between:

  • a buyer and seller;
  • an agent and buyer or seller;
  • a buyer and a bank providing finance; and/or
  • a buyer or seller and a property inspector.

Real estate disputes can arise in situations such as when:

  • a real estate agent misrepresents a property (its value or potential rental income, for example) and a buyer relies on those misrepresentations;
  • a conveyancer makes a mistake which results in property ownership not being transferred properly;
  • a pest inspector fails to detect termite damage in a property;
  • a seller conceals property damage; or
  • a bank misses a finance deadline and a buyer loses their deposit as a result.

Gibbs Wright Litigation Lawyers can explain (in a simple and straightforward way) the law and procedures involved in dealing with all kinds of property disputes, helping to remove the stress and guesswork.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Engaging a lawyer is not compulsory for a real estate dispute but when dealing with assets worth many thousands of dollars, it is vital that you obtain proper legal advice to ensure you are protecting your rights, as well as maximising your chances of achieving the best possible outcome.

Property law is complex and for you to make an informed decision, it is advisable to work with a litigation team that has experience in a wide range of real estate and property matters.

At Gibbs Wright, our lawyers can offer advice on all options to ensure an effective resolution. Call us for no-obligation, confidential consultation.

What can a litigation lawyer do?

A litigation lawyer can offer advice or representation in a dispute.

They may, for example, be involved in helping to negotiate a resolution without the need for court proceedings.

If negotiation is not successful, the lawyer can help a party prepare for court proceedings.

Will I need to go to court for my real estate 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 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, expectations and individual circumstances.

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 correspondence to assess this. If we determine that we can help you, we will provide an estimate of fees, calculated based 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.
