Here to help you sort it out
Mark Stocks Lawyers is a Port Macquarie based law firm specialising in property and commercial matters. Are you selling or buying residential or commercial property? Want help with a commercial property lease? Are you buying or selling a business? Need to make a new will, power of attorney or enduring guardian appointment? We have experienced and qualified staff ready to assist with the process. Don’t gamble with your investment and financial future – always go to an expert.
If you are buying or selling your home, vacant land, your farm, an investment property or commercial premises we can help. Need assistance with an aged care facility lease and entry documents? There is no substitute for experience and professionalism.
Land development is complex. Whether you need help with a major residential or industrial subdivision or a small duplex, we can assist with “off the plan” contract sales, option agreements, creating subdivision restrictions and easements and the legal aspects of creating strata and community title schemes.
If you are a landlord or tenant about to enter into a retail or commercial premises lease we can prepare or review the required legal documents. Protecting your legal interests and investment is critical.
Buying or selling a business? We can help with the contract preparation and review, including share holders agreements, personal guarantee documents required by lenders, vendor financing documentation and franchise agreements. If you are already in business we can assist with property leases and the numerous other legal documents encountered including supplier, contractor and confidentiality agreements.
A will is an important legal document that sets out the way a person’s assets are to be distributed upon their death. Estate planning needs to include the possible appointment of a power of attorney and enduring guardian to manage a person’s affairs when they can no longer do this. Do you want to prepare a new will? Need to appoint a Power of Attorney or Enduring Guardian? Want to put in place a binding death benefit nomination for your self management superannuation fund?
If you are an executor under a will or a friend or relative has died without having a will in place we can assist with the legal process to apply for a grant of probate or letters of administration and the process of obtaining and distributing the estates assets.
