  • Estate Transfers: If you need help handling deceased estates through the preparation of a Transmission Application or Notice of Death, our team is ready and waiting to help transfer a property from the deceased’s name to those of the executor or beneficiary.
  • Transfer Duty Exemptions: For married couples that may wish to transfer a principal place of residence from one spouses name into joint names, we can assist with applying for the transfer duty exemptions available for this.
  • Tenancy Transfers: We can also assist with changing the tenancy of a property from joint tenants to tenants in common, or vice versa, which can assist with estate planning objectives.


Our process is streamlined and efficient, utilising the PEXA electronic workspace for the swift lodging of transfer documents with Land Registry Services NSW, ensuring a hassle-free transfer process.
