The Government has announced a range of measures to help renters. This includes a temporary hold on evictions and a mandatory code of conduct for commercial tenancies to support small and medium sized businesses affected by coronavirus.
Hold on evictions for renters
Evictions will be put on hold over the next 6 months for commercial and residential tenants in financial distress, who are unable to meet their commitments due to the impact of the coronavirus.
In order to protect our valued clients and staff and their families, we have introduced various measures to promote health and safety in our office.
In addition, we encourage clients to conduct meetings by telephone or electronically (such as Zoom or Skype meetings) where possible. Face to face meetings can still be held where needed (and if permitted by government rules).
If you wish to schedule a meeting please telephone us on 4577 2214, or fill in your contact details by clicking here and we’ll get back to you.
We are now able to settle property transactions on PEXA, Australia’s property online exchange. Whether your next sale or purchase can be on PEXA will depend on whether your lender is a participant and whether the solicitor or conveyancer acting for the other party is on PEXA. If your sale or purchase is going to be on PEXA we need to do a 100 point identity check before proceeding.
