An introduction to Bridge Legal

Specialisation in Property

Bridge Legal specialises in property law and the team also includes an accredited specialist in property law. They predominantly support a number of small to medium financial planning firms, accountants and brokers, by acting for their clients and understand the intricacies of a property transaction.

Bridge Legal act on the sale and purchase of real estate, including established homes, off the plan purchases, strata title, house and land packages, company title units, commercial office space purchases and options to purchase among other areas of law.

Broader Offering

The other areas of law Bridge Legal deal with include the drafting of joint venture agreements and leasing, as well as estate planning, which includes the drafting Wills and powers of attorney, family law matters, divorce law, property orders, binding financial agreements, binding death benefit nominations, probate and letters of administration.

Leveraging of the Legal Team

The team of solicitors also advise clients in relation to loans with major banks and financial institutions, private lending and corporate borrowers. This is particularly useful when a property is purchased in a Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) as they can provide independent legal advice which is a common requirement of SMSF lenders. Buying in a SMSF also brings with it the need for SMSF and bare trust deeds to be drafted and at times a trust amendment deed, which they can easily assist with.

Process and Through Due Diligence

Bridge Legal are extremely thorough when conducting a contract review and providing an explanation to their clients of the terms of contracts and offer a personalised easy to understand service. They provide upfront fixed fee quotes to ensure their clients are aware of all costs associated with the services being provided at the start of any transaction. Their experienced staff understand that complex issues may arise within a property transaction at any time and they are skilled in resolving those issues in a timely manner with their clients best interests in mind throughout the duration of the transaction. They aim to ensure their clients are kept well informed and understand what is occurring at all times.

National Presence

Bridge Legal has physical offices in Brisbane and Sydney and can assist with property purchases and sales in the states of Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia. Given that many clients are now working from home, they are flexible in how they meet with clients and can arrange an online teams meeting to conduct a meeting rather than meeting in person at either of their offices if this is preferred. Their experienced solicitors and conveyancers aim to streamline their process for their clients to make the transaction as smooth and stress free as possible.

Communication and Client Updates

Communication is key, as is promptness and attention to detail. This is why many of Bridge Legal’s clients return to use their services to purchase future properties when building upon their property portfolio. Their focus is on maintaining long term relationships with clients that value consistency and innovation with traditional values. Their staff strive to build upon their relationships with their clients to ensure they feel comfortable and confident in returning for any future legal needs.
