  • should you buy in your name, your partner’s name, both names or through a trust.

Testimonials

The Roberts Legal team has been brilliant to deal with once again…

A massive thank you for your support with the purchase of our new house. The Roberts Legal team has been brilliant to deal with once again and has made a fairly complicated process from overseas much easier.

Thomas Beach.


Without Sam’s assistance the loss of the sales and impediment of the stumbling block would likely have cost our company hundreds of thousands of dollars.

“My company recently engaged Sam Roberts and Roberts Legal to act on its behalf in relation to the sale of two (2) commercial properties at Dubbo. I found that Sam understood everything in relation to my business and acted extremely fast on anything that needed to be done. At all times the service was very prompt and efficient.

Sam and his team helped our company overcome a major stumbling block in relation to our sales which meant that the sales of our significant commercial properties could proceed. Without Sam’s assistance the loss of the sales and impediment of the stumbling block would likely have cost our company hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Even my commercial agent who deals with many Solicitors and law firms commented on how efficient Sam and his team were.

I found Sam to be very professional in the matter that he has acted.  For a young fellow he has done extremely well.”

Nik Shalimov, Dubbo Developments Pty Limited

Your attention to detail and constant communication removed a lot of the jitters that buying a family home usually entails.

“Your attention to detail and constant communication ensured that we were always comfortable with what was happening and removed a lot of the jitters that buying a family home usually entails. In fact the Vendor’s Agent even commented at how well and promptly your office communicated with him, he commented that in most cases it was the Agent forever ringing the Solicitor or Conveyancer to follow up but that he did not feel the need to do so with your firm.”

Luke Stevens, Amber Tiles


Another flawless conveyancing performance.

Fiona Davis


I commented to a friend at the time “Wow, these guys are certainly ‘on the ball’ – and you still are!

“I have been very impressed by the way in which you conduct your business – very professional yet friendly and always approachable. I commented to a friend at the time “Wow, these guys are certainly ‘on the ball’ – and you still are!”
