Conveyancing & Property
When you are thinking about buying a house or selling your house, or your investment property, it is important to seek the advice and assistance of people who have the experience to help you to avoid the traps and pitfalls of property contracts. We understand that this is one of the biggest financial commitments you will make in your life.
Every person is different and each family is different. We recognise this, and it forms the basis of our approach. We take the time to get to know our clients and develop a clear understanding of their intentions, so we get it right. We recognise that Estate Planning is more than just making a Will. It is about ensuring that all your assets and entities are passed onto your beneficiaries the way you wish. We leave no stone unturned.
Planning & Environment Law
At Tremayne Fay Rheinberger we specialise in planning and local government work, acting for a number of local government authorities on a range of issues including planning, contractual and governmental issues, drafting by-laws as well as conducting litigation on their behalf.
Workplace Relations Law
Workplace relations and employment law has been a constantly changing landscape in Australia. We offer personable and experienced Hobart Workplace Lawyers who can assist you in relation to employment and workplace relations matters with knowledgeable, practical advice in plain English, at reasonable hourly rates.
Probate & Deceased Estates
Our firm helps you to take the stress out of the administration of a deceased estate. We assist Executors (where there is a will) and Administrators (where there is no will) to ensure that they comply with all legal obligations. It is a significant responsibility to administer a deceased estate and we make sure that you are guided through every step of the process, from understanding the will, compiling an inventory of estate assets and liabilities, applying for a grant of probate (where there is a will) or a grant of letters of administration (where there is no will), to paying estate debts, ensuring tax obligations are met and finally distributing the estate to the will maker’s chosen beneficiaries.
TFR Lawyers take the time to get to know you understand your circumstances and the outcome you want to achieve. We aim to resolve matters by agreement by entering into negotiations with your former partner, or by inviting them to attend family dispute resolution.
If agreement is not reached, we provide expert representation at Court to ensure your voice is heard and you are taken seriously. Our lawyers practise as both barristers and solicitors, giving us the flexibility to act as ‘in house’ Counsel and attend Court on our clients’ behalf. We also brief external Counsel as required.
