The Szabo Report: How do Sydney's House Prices Compare to the rest of the Country?
Good Morning <<First Name>>,

This month we have a couple of articles about real estate: one about Sydney house prices outperforming the rest of the country’s state capitals which you can read here and the other noting that Sydney and Melbourne have ‘made it’ on to the top 20 list of residential locations here.

As many of you know, we can assist you with all aspects of property transactions: conveyancing for your property sale and/or purchase, assisting clients with retail, industrial and commercial leases (landlords and tenants), acting for landlords and tenants when it comes to disputes over such leases by Supreme and District Court litigation to protect and enforce the rights of our clients, Primary Applications over parcels of Old System land, and Land & Environment Court actions when needed.

Our Family Law Associate, Monique Loveday has written an interesting piece on ‘eSafety for women’. This is timely given the recent spate of so called ‘revenge porn’ stories lately. The very term ‘revenge porn’ used by the media is in my view inappropriate. You can read this article here.

Finally, another interesting recent case about a daughter from Sydney’s north shore who sued her sister over their mother’s Will can be found here.
As always, please call us if you have any questions about the contents of this newsletter or any of the areas of our legal practice.

Australian Cities Included in Prime Residential Locations List

The latest Prime International Residential Index (PIRI 100) from Knight Frank has revealed that two Australian cities, Sydney and Melbourne, are placed in the the list of top 20 residential locations.

The PIRI 100 list tracks the value of luxury homes in 100 locations across the world. It found that Australasia was the strongest-performing world region in 2016, with prices rising by 11.4% year-on-year.
