Property & Real Estate » Disposals & Acquisitions

Global economic volatility has left a wake of trends: A move back to the proper structuring of acquisitions; the emergence of more asset swap deals; and a greater emphasis on vendors doing due diligence to make assets more attractive to potential buyers.

Corrs gives businesses confidence to take a deal across the line in the most efficient and competitive way. This can mean identifying key risk areas and acting strategically to mitigate them, delivering the most value and limiting wasteful and unfocussed due diligence.

Our Experience

Amcor

The decommissioning of Amcor’s 80-year-old Alphington mill, and the rezoning and sale of its prime, riverside,16-hectare site in Melbourne’s inner east, was complex and particularly challenging because of community, environmental and commercial sensitivities about the long term industrial site, which is set in a prime residential area.

Corrs provided a high level of strategic advice, due diligence, technical expertise and proactive management of environmental concerns to ensure a successful sale process.

More

Stockland

The intense competition for newly-released housing land has required Corrs to consistently make swift assessments of legal issues, commercial concerns and structuring options to position major developer, Stockland, to place successful bids.

By acting for the purchase of 180 hectares, for more than $80 million, Corrs has helped Stockland to significantly boost its key strategic presence in key Victorian growth corridors.

Middle East Fund property investment in Australia

Corrs advised a substantial Middle East Sovereign Wealth Fund on various indirect property investments in a number of Australian jurisdictions, managed by a prominent Australian financial institution.

The assets in question are substantial retail properties in the relevant jurisdictions, and offered development opportunities as well as ongoing revenue. Our advice related to managed investment documentation, review and commentary on the due diligence as well as sale and purchase and associated documentation.

The pressure cooker that is Australia’s commercial property market

Development sites are scarcer and the risks are getting higher.

Streamlining the sale and conveyancing process in Queensland

The Queensland Government investigation of ways to streamline the sale and conveyancing process in Queensland needs to address the disclosure requirements across all types of transactions.

FIRB offers more certainty to overseas investors purchasing Australian real estate

A resilient property market and improved transparency from Australia’s FIRB is correlating with a sharp increase in overseas interest in Australian real estate.

Hot property - Get in quick

The Australian property market is so hot, you’re likely to be burned if you wait until you need it to look for new commercial property. It could cost you in failing to get what you need, or paying too much for it.
