THE PROJECT
We were engaged by a high net worth individual to act on the purchase of a property from a seller in serious financial distress. The seller was at risk of losing possession of the property to the Sheriff and wished to sell the property so that it could subsequently lease the property from the purchaser.
HOW WE HELPED
Within the space of 24 hours, we set up a SMSF special purpose vehicle for our client, prepared, exchanged and settled the contract for sale and documented the lease agreement between our client and the seller. By day’s end, our client had purchased a property, leased the property, and collected his first instalment of rent.
THE PROJECT
A high net worth landlord wished to sell its lucrative commercial premises and minimise any headaches that might be caused by existing and incoming tenants.
HOW WE HELPED
Prior to preparing the contract for sale, we negotiated and amended an incoming tenant’s lease with a view to streamline the rollover of that lease on settlement of the property. In the contract for sale, we included a host of special conditions that accounted for the five existing tenant’s first rights of refusal and option periods so that our client avoided any potential disputes with those tenants.
