Co-ownership Agreements

Whether you co own property as tenants in common or as joint proprietors, disagreements can arise between owners. We always suggest that parties come to a written agreement to cover the arrangement and understanding between the parties. 

Status Legal Group has acted for clients at the conception stage of co-ownership in the drafting of agreements and when a dispute has arisen between parties. The co-ownership agreement would consider the obligations of the parties as to how the contributions are made the ongoing costs of the property and the proportionate borrowings by each party and the priority of payment to the lender. 

Conversely, we have successfully litigated for clients who cannot resolved disputes in making application to the Victorian Civil and Administrate Tribunal (VCAT) for orders for the sale of the property and appropriate adjustment of the sale proceeds.
