Property

What is property law?

When we talk about property (being either land or an item) in the context of law what we are really referring to is a person’s entitlement to use that property for a certain purpose.

For example, there are varying degrees of entitlement to property such as:

  • the owner or registered proprietor who has a undefeatable right to the land (indefeasible title)
  • the Crown or the Commonwealth Government who has a constitutional right to acquire your land in exchange for adequate compensation
  • Native Title rights which may be possessory or limited to a certain use for first nation peoples over areas of Crown Land
  • mortgagees (either a bank or a private lender who may have the right to re-possess the land in the event the owner defaults on their mortgage)
  • leaseholders also known as tenants who have an exclusive right to possession of the land
  • licensees (such as someone who hires an Airbnb)
  • secured lenders (who might have a right to lodge a caveat over land or a personal property security over an item as a creditor).

And then a person’s use with regard to land or an item may vary based on the zoning of the land (such as commercial, residential, industrial, etc) or it may be determined by contract under a security agreement, loan, lease, license agreement, easement, covenant, etc.

At Ellison-Whyte Law we are passionate about all things property and are ready and able to assist you with navigating your property transaction.

Business

When owning and running a small business, you wear many hats. It can be challenging to work out when to invest in legal assistance and when to DIY your legal documents.

At Ellison-Whyte Law we are aware of the hardship with navigating the market as a small to medium enterprise. As part of our commitment to small business we have developed the Small Business Toolkit which is a free resource filled with great referrals and resources on how to DIY certain aspects from start up, navigating disputes and winding up. We also give hints and tips on when and where you should be investing in solid legal advice.

Don’t want to DIY? Our staff are experienced in business sale and purchase, preparation of lease agreements and much much more. Book an appointment today.

Wills & Estates

Have you got a plan in place for your loved ones in the event that something happens to you? Preparing a well drafted will and having an enduring power of attorney and medical treatment decision maker takes the burden off your loved ones when it comes to managing your affairs after you pass on or in the event you become incapacitated.

At Ellison-Whyte Law we are passionate about helping you put solid scaffolding in place to ensure your affairs are in order and you have a plan for your loved ones so they feel held in their time of grief.

Family Law

Separation is undeniably one of the most stressful events you can experience in your life. When separating from a partner you may feel triggered, threatened to your core, failure, doubt, regret. As humans we have a natural tendency to try and avoid feelings of discomfort and often fall into a flight or fight response when faced with difficulty.

Our service acknowledges and holds space for the whole person. We offer an online separation coaching service and focus on holding space for uncomfortable feelings and transforming them to help you get to a place where you can make great choices about your separation, take steps towards building a future life beyond separation, and come to an amicable agreement with your ex-partner.
