Tax and Financial Planning

Legal Advice and Assistance

Whether your concerns are purely about arranging the legal transfer of property (conveyancing), arranging FIRB approval or have questions about the best (and most tax effective) ownership structure, we provide online access to professional legal services across Australia.

Any Australian expat with a partner who is neither an Australian citizen or permanent resident needs to consider how they buy Australian property - there may be unexpected constraints or significant additional costs attaching to purchasing on a joint or common basis with their partner. Additionally, given restrictions on foreign non-residents holding interests in Australian real estate property cannot simply be passed to foreign beneficiaries in a will without potentially requiring FIRB approval.

Buying, Selling and Renting Property

We provide a wide range of information focused on providing expat Australians, and other interested parties, with detailed background information on the cost of buying, selling and renting out residential real estate in Australia. A partner firm is also able to provide a property management service in almost all Australian capital cities at very competitive rates.
