Develop or subdivide?

There are many legal aspects to developing your land or undertaking a subdivision and you will have many questions –

With great support, encouragement and integrity they gave us sound financial and legal advice and careful consideration about placing practical covenants on all the Munro Court titles, and all the staff worked with great professionalism. A project like this would not succeed without a proficient lawyer. We were lucky to have Robertson Hyetts Lawyers in our town to support our project’.
