Firm bucks trend, backs Nambour

Andrew Gardiner Law is encouraging more businesses to invest in Nambour as it announces its expansion into the hinterland.

Director Andrew Gardiner, who has practiced law for nearly three decades in Mooloolaba, decided the addition of the Nambour location would better serve hinterland clients who may prefer to handle their legal matters locally.  Read More

AVOID COSTLY LEGAL MISTAKES

Our client was selling their current home and buying their new dream home. Like most homeowners, our client needed the sale to proceed before or on the same day as the purchase to have enough money to buy the new house. In this case, settlement was on the same day. Our conveyancing manager, Kellie, had all her ducks in a row. Our client had removalists and cleaners organised for settlement day. 

The seller of our client’s dream home decided that she could act for herself. She did not get her bank ready for settlement. Our client’s sale proceeded because the contract was unconditional, but the purchase was delayed because the seller’s bank needed more time. 

As a result, our client’s worldly possessions were stuck in the back of a truck and our client was homeless! 

In this instance, the seller paid for the removalists extra charges and our clients accommodation for one night. The seller was lucky that the delay was only one day and the extra costs were only about $800. It could have been a lot more! Our client did not ask for other damages.

Our fee to act on a sale? You guessed it - less than the extra costs the seller had to pay our client!

The seller learnt that lesson the hard way, but you dont have to. If you need conveyancing help or other legal assistance, send us a message today.

Happens a lot but you simply can’t tell people and we don’t have to hold a seller’s hand but sometimes it us a must for the advantage of our client

SCOMO ADOPTS A WINNING POSITION

Do you remember back in May when Clive Palmer first started threatening to take Western Australia to the High Court to dispute the COVID-19 border closures? We argued in our Facebook post that Western Australia’s hard-line approach was unreasonable and that testing people for COVID-19 at the borders would be fair.

See our original post here

Well, it looks like ScoMo agrees with our stance because a couple of days ago he told WA Premier Mark McGowan that his all-or-nothing approach regarding border closures will highly likely fall foul of the Constitution.

As for case itself, the Federal Court is taking evidence. The High Court will hear legal argument, presumably, later this year. 

We may still eat humble pie on this topic, but we remain true to our original post and we’re glad to see ScoMo agrees. 

Humble pie or not, we will let you know the High Court’s decision…
