This small group intensive workshop guides you step-by-step through three transactions: a stand-alone fee simple residential dwelling, a cross-lease dwelling and a unit title property.

Learning objectives

The course covers how to:

  • Deal with matters such as requisitions, undertakings, special conditions, and settlement.
  • Use standard forms and procedures, particularly agreements for sale and purchase and land registration documents.
  • Distinguish between and become more familiar with various types of titles and different ownership and funding options.
  • Recognise and develop file management practices that reduce the chance of error or poor service to clients.
  • Apply risk management practices that recognise areas requiring decisions or input from your employing principal, including identifying conflict issues.
  • Advice on AML compliance, OIO Residential Land Statements, Authority and Instruction witnessing, Bright-Line and Residential Land Withholding Tax obligations, and tax statements.


You will work through the three case files in a small group as well as in full group discussions. You are required to complete at least two hours of preliminary work before attending.

Who should attend

This course is a must if you are a lawyer, legal executive or litigator with limited practical experience in property law.

Please Note:

  • Participants are expected to have completed at least 3-6 months in a legal environment and be familiar with the ADLS standard form agreement for sale and purchase of real estate.
  • Places are limited so register early to avoid disappointment.
