With extensive expertise in both private practice and government sectors, Forrest Legal offers extensive knowledge in property law and related areas. This includes specialist areas of property law such as removal or variation of restrictive covenants, adverse possession claims and compulsory acquisitions.
A common enquiry received by Forrest Legal relates to the removal or variation of restrictive covenants which can affect the development of land. Forrest Legal can advise you as to the likelihood of successfully removing or varying restrictive covenants and what options are available, and can work with other service providers such as surveyors if removal or variation is an option.
When property boundaries are out of alignment, or where land has been abandoned by the original owners, the laws of adverse possession may apply. Forrest Legal provides guidance and advice to both consumers and government bodies in relation to ownership and adverse possession rights.
