Vow Legal are nationally admitted to practise in all States and Territories of Australia, geographical distance is no barrier, and have a virtual office in every State.
Our long standing history is a testament to our services. In maintaining our high standard of professional services our firm follows three key principles:
- Trust: to uphold the trust in which our clients place in their Solicitors
- Knowledge: to maintain the highest standard of legal knowledge. All of Vow practitioners continue their professional development through education seminars and conferences
- Confidence: to enable all clients to have confidence in our advice and actions
Our law firm has over 40 years of continuous practice and throughout that time has participated in all fields of commercial law and associated commercial litigation, construction law, property law, liability law and litigation including personal injuries, professional negligence and public liability. This enables our firm to provide the practical input needed when a commercial settlement is the object of the client's instructions. We are also experienced in negotiating major acquisitions including corporate take-outs, unit trust buy-outs, retirements, major land parcel acquisitions and documenting all of the associated arrangements.
As experienced property and finance lawyers, we have documented all forms of major land parcel acquisitions, joint ventures, development works, master plan negotiations with Council and flat land, and "off-the-plan" low, medium and high-density sub-divisions.
Property Law and Conveyancing
Over the past decade there has been an increase in the level of complexity and skill required to complete a property transaction. Our firm’s national property law expertise ensures that when you are buying or selling a house, unit or land, your rights will be protected and we make sure that every step of the transaction is complied with accordingly.
Buying or selling a property is often one of your largest financial investments so it is vital that you obtain the right advice during this process. If you do not comply with your contractual obligations you risk losing your deposit and/or being sued for damages. Furthermore, it is imperative that the relevant title and other searches are undertaken to investigate exactly what you are buying.
Our practitioners have over 40 years of collective property law experience so you can rest assured that when instructing our firm you will receive a professional service that surpasses the competition. Our bespoke systems software allows you to track the process of your conveyancing online, so you receive the same level of service but at a very competitive price.
Vow Legal prides itself on being at the vanguard of technology and our online conveyancing service means that geography is no barrier to us providing specialist conveyancing services throughout Australia. Our conveyancing services include the provision of:
Self Managed Superannuation Funds
We provide our clientele and their respective advisors with a real-time online portal to provide instructions and obtain documentation for SMSF trust and associated documentation.
By providing instructions online we are able to guarantee the production of the documentation within twenty-four (24) hours of receipt of instructions. The majority of our documentation can be delivered in electronic format.
As National Lawyers Vow Legal is able to develop and produce SMSF documentation throughout Australia. All Australia wide document preparation, client liaison and certifications are handled and provided by teams that work under the direct supervision of a legal practitioner.
We ensure that your clients have every box checked when they enter into a SMSF Borrowing arrangement. Our team of specialists carefully go over each transaction, ensuring the documentation provided is compliant not only with the s67(4A) legislation, but with the lending institution as well.
We prepare the complete suite of documents in relation to SMSF Complying Loans including:
SMSF Statements of Advice
Through our subsidiary company we can provide your clients with Statements of Advice in relation to SMSF Borrowing, a requirement for some banks lending on these loans.
SMSF Establishment or Trust Deed update documentation
In order to comply with the ATO and the SIS legislation and regulations, the SMSF Trust Deed must allow for borrowing and provide for a range of other abilities including the charging of assets, the appointment of a custodian, and the ability to invest in property. Further to this, if the Fund is lending from a bank, the bank itself will have specific provisions it requires in order to release the loan to the Super Fund. Our deed is vetted by the major banks and complies with all relevant SIS and ATO requirements.
The Trustee of the Super Fund, and the Trustee of the Custodian Trust, cannot be the same legal entity under Trust law. As a result, your client will likely have to register a company to act either as Trustee of the Super Fund or Trustee of the Custodian Trust. It is our view that it is preferable for the Custodian Trustee to be a Company. We can register either a standard Pty Ltd company for a Custodian Trustee, or a Sole Purpose Company Registration for a SMSF Trustee.
SMSF Investment Strategy
The Fund’s Investment Strategy should provide for borrowing, and the investment in property by the Fund. We can prepare an ATO and SIS compliant investment strategy for the Fund tailored for Super Borrowing.
Custodian Trust and Custodian Trust and Loan Packages
We provide both external lender (Bank) and related party lender documentation in relation to SMSF Complying Loans. You receive lawyer sign off on the documents, stating they are compliant with the SIS requirements, and they have also been vetted by the major banks so your client’s settlement will not be held up.
