I am a commercial property lawyer working in the property development and private client team at Glaister Ennor.

I aim to anticipate my client’s needs, and tailor advice and solutions to meet my client’s goals on a wide range of matters, including residential and commercial property transactions and private client matters.

My main expertise is working on residential and commercial projects. My work has included drafting complex contracts for a large planned urban residential and commercial land development, assisting with acquisition negotiations and funding arrangements, being involved with subdivision work, and managing contracts through to disposal and post settlement.

My practice is predominantly in the following areas:

  • residential and commercial conveyancing
  • acquisition of land and subdivision developments
  • leasing
  • trusts, wills, and estate planning
  • incorporated societies and company share units
  • sale and purchase of small to medium size businesses
  • financing and banking
  • franchises
  • distribution and supply agreements; and
  • Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act, and consumer credit contracts.

I have advised clients on land acquisition and development work from simple two-lot subdivisions to complex subdivisions for unit titles, from multi-lot fee simple estates to freeholding of cross lease estates. I also advise and assist with negotiations for landlords, tenants, and clients with commercial property holdings. And, I advise and assist with the management of lease portfolios to ensure lease documentation reflects the agreed commercial terms. All my work is with the aim to obtain the best outcomes for my clients.

I provide advice to share unit holding companies, which includes dealing with issues and reviews of shared ownership, as well as updating their constitutions, rules, deeds of covenant, and occupational licences.

I provide advice to clients in relation to estate planning, family trusts, property sharing, family arrangements, wills, and enduring powers of attorney. I have advised clients in respect of hotel and motel operator leasing and franchise arrangements.

I have acted for clients in the sale and purchase of small to medium businesses in the retail, food, health, chemical, electronics, motel, and childcare sectors. In addition, I have drafted and provided advice on supply and distribution agreements, contractor agreements, and licences.

Finally, I provide advice on company matters such as incorporations, constitutions, shareholders agreements, joint ventures, and limited partnerships.

My aim with any of this work is to offer consistent, responsive, sound legal advice while providing practical and cost effective outcomes for my clients.

Gaynor is a Partner who does not share liabilities of the partnership.
