Residential Property Law


Have you got what it takes?

Property law is a thriving area of practice. As a permanent asset, the value of land has always been high throughout history and there will always be a market to sell, lease, buy or develop it.

As a property lawyer, you could be involved in many types of property-based transactions. Junior lawyers often handle small value property matters on their own as well as working on drafting contracts and related documents before progressing to negotiations between parties.  
A number of people in property law choose to specialise, whereas others prefer to be general practitioners and work in all areas of property. You could work on Residential or Commercial property matters or both. 

So what makes a good Residential property lawyer?

1.    You’ll need attention to detail and the ability to meticulously collate and present information. You must be logical in dealing with all concerned parties and your drafting skills should be first-class.
2.    A thorough understanding of the various laws and regulations that govern property are essential as well as excellent communication skills.
3.    Client management is also important and you’ll need the ability to convert complex jargon and terminology into simple terms for your clients.
