We provide an excellent service in relation to property matters which has been shaped from many years of experience in this area.
Conveyancing is the process required to transfer the ownership of property including residential, commercial and agricultural property. It includes the:-
- Sale of property
- Purchase of property
- Voluntary Transfer of property
- Compulsory Purchase of property (CPO)
- Property Taxes
It requires an investigation into the title to the property prior to the transfer including an evaluation of compliance with Planning Permission and Building Regulations.
The use of property as security for a loan or mortgage is a common aspect of conveyancing. Whether you are mortgaging an existing property, changing lender, or are building or buying a new home or business premises, we can advise and support you fully throughout the process.
A property transfer will trigger a tax liability whether you are a Vendor or a Purchaser. We can advise you in relation to the tax implications of the transaction including:-
- Stamp Duty
- Capital Gains Tax (CGT)
- Capital Acquisitions Tax (CAT)
- Non-Principal Private Residence (NPPR) Tax
- Household Charge
- Local Property Tax (LPT)
We will investigate the availability of tax incentives, reliefs or exemptions and advise you on the most tax efficient way to deal with your property.
We advise in relation to commercial rates as to their applicability and the steps to be taken where a dispute arises as to the appropriate rateable valuation to be applied to a property.
Landlord and Tenant
We can assist you if you are transferring an interest in your property as opposed to the ownership of the property. This includes residential and commercial leasing. Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, we can advise you.
Commercial and Agricultural
We can prepare the appropriate commercial lease for the farm or business premises to be leased including rent reviews where appropriate and renunciations if necessary. We will assist you to ensure the property and terms of the agreement are properly defined. If the relationship breaks down, whether you are the landlord or the tenant, we can advise you what steps to take to protect your interests.
We can advise you on all aspects of residential tenancies from commencing a tenancy to terminating a tenancy. This includes preparing a Tenancy Agreement, registering with the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB), preparing and serving a valid Notice of Termination. If a dispute has arisen, we can advise you in relation to the appropriate steps to take towards resolving the dispute, recovering unpaid rent and removing a tenant from the premises.
