CONVEYANCING IN DARLINGHURST
Conveyancing in Darlinghurst, as in other inner suburbs of Sydney, can be complicated.
In the days when Darlinghurst was dominated by the presence of the Darlinghurst Jail (now the National Art School) and home to Sydney’s infamous razor gangs and other criminals, whole rows of terraces and cottages were part of family trusts or controlled by slum landlords.
A recent survey showed how things have changed. Property lawyers are much more likely to deal with established families or independent singles than razor gangs. Properties turn over when people are ready to move on, and fresh conveyancing transactions in the suburb are necessary.
But the history can make buying and its attendant conveyancing complicated. For example, there may be lanes that once belonged to a single property and are now jointly owned, or easements that conveyancers have haggled over for generations.
Add to this the fact that property ranges from studio flats to Baz Luhrmann’s mansion ‘Iona’, and you must make sure you get the most suitable suburban conveyancing services for the area. We at JFM Property Lawyers have the best local knowledge and the mot capable conveyancing staff. Why go anywhere else?
