Commercial Development Applications with Our Grafton Solicitors

Commercial development applications are formal requests submitted to local councils or planning authorities seeking permission for the development or use of land for commercial purposes. These applications ensure that proposed developments align with zoning laws, environmental regulations, and urban planning objectives. 

Successful applications pave the way for the construction or alteration of commercial facilities, such as retail stores, office buildings, and industrial complexes, contributing to local economic growth and community development.

Who We Help

Commercial development applications play an important role in shaping the urban environment and supporting economic development. By ensuring that commercial projects adhere to planning policies and regulations, these applications contribute to the sustainable growth of cities and towns. 

With a commercial development application, you may be able to facilitate the optimal use of land, encourage investment, and help create vibrant, functional spaces that meet the needs of businesses and communities. The process promotes public participation and ensures that development projects consider environmental impacts and community benefits.

Frequently asked questions

In most circumstances, we can work around what is more convenient for you. We are generally able to work with clients over the phone, via email, or zoom, but if you’d like to meet in person, we can set that up too. Obviously, if there is paperwork to sign we will work with you to arrange an accessible location.

During this 15 minute consultation, we will typically discuss your legal matter and why it is you’ve come to us. We can outline a suggested approach, associated costs to move forward, and the next steps should you choose to continue with our services.

Without meeting or understanding the complexity of your situation, it’s difficult to provide an unmitigated cost. After discussions, once we understand the circumstances of your legal matter, we will be able to give you an estimate of the range of costs you may incur.

We do offer fee arrangements (such as instalments) and can discuss these with you once we establish a way forward. We are always prepared to work with you to come up with a mutually acceptable arrangement.

No, we do not bill in six-minute intervals. We can usually provide a fixed fee quote once we establish the associated works involved in your matter.

We will always be upfront with how long processes take and aim to work as quickly as possible, particularly when you are working to a tight timeframe.

Just remember that some steps in the timeline are out of our hands, so be sure to take that into account.

Our flat fee for basic general conveyancing is $1,500+GST, plus any disbursements that might come up in that particular matter. Complicated matters may incur a higher fee. Again, we will always be upfront with the charges you can expect.

A Will is an important legal document that outlines your wishes, including how you want your assets distributed, when you die. A well drafted Will may prevent potential family disagreements and reduce the risk of claims against your estate. They can also provide instruction for the appointment of guardians for children under 18 years old, so it’s important your document is up to date and reviewed every couple of years.

Yes, bring your marriage certificate to your meeting. Know that before applying for a divorce, you need to be separated for at least 12 months, but importantly, you do not need to be divorced to obtain a property settlement. We can guide you through that process.

Yes, we can witness your documents by prior appointment.
