Property & Strata Law

Leases, mortgages and caveats.

Pragma acts for both landlords and lessees in relation to commercial property matters and disputes.  We provide clear and effective leasing documentation to protect the interests of our clients.  Our lawyers act and advise potential lessees in relation to proposed leases and securities (including mortgages and caveats), including negotiating on their behalf to secure favourable terms of lease and mitigate risks associated with tenancy.  We advise our clients on the Property Law Act, Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act, Strata Titles Act and associated legislation.

Sale and purchase of property.

Our lawyers act for both vendors and purchasers in relation to the sale of private and commercial properties.  We provide advice and assistance in relation to the lodgment or removal of encumbrances and interests.

Property disputes.

Our firm has an established client base of property owners for whom we act in relation to property disputes.  We act for our clients in relation to compliance with leases, recovery or mitigation of monies due under leases, contested securities including caveats and mortgages, and other associated matters.

The firm also acts for residential and commercial tenants in relation to property disputes, whose interests may be adversely affected by the actions of landlords.

Residential and Commercial Strata Properties.

At Pragma we understand the complexity & diversity of disputes you may face as an owner of a Residential or Commercial strata property.

These can change frequently into a range of very different risks.

In Western Australia, strata titles are governed by the Strata Titles Act 1985 (WA). At Pragma we use the strength of our experience to focus on Strata matters such as:

  • Advising Strata Owners & Body Corporates;
  • Preparing Management Statements;
  • Amending & Implementing By-laws;
  • Enforcing By-Laws;
  • Common property disputes;
  • Governance & Compliance; and
  • State Administrative Tribunal Proceedings.

At Pragma, we specialise in dispute resolution to help our clients maximise the chances of resolving their dispute in a timely and cost effective manner.
