Inquiring for an elderly friend who is trying to get her estate in order. She does not want her family to have anything when she dies (she feels that they have got enough from her as it is and doesn't even want to mention them by name in her will) -
all money is to be left to charity.
She is assuming that once she dies and the will is in the hands of the solicitor he will then action and wind up the estate.
I should mention that she is living in Qld.

Homer Simpson is selling his farm of two titles (one old title and one Torrens Title) and the parties have agreed the vendor will provide two Transfer of Land Act titles. However, the new purchaser does not want to pay GST and keep stamp duty to a minimum. What advice could you offer to not pay GST and reduce stamp duty? What documents have to be prepared for the conversion to a transfer of title?

I have a question. Why does the Victorian Government resume land and the Commonwealth acquire land? Is it because the constitution states that the states resume land and the Commonwealth acquires it; the Crown is properly represented by the Commonwealth in matters relating to land or the power to hold all land is vested in the States as a residual power after the creation of the Commonwealth? I'd appreciate any clarity on this matter.

Me = separated from ex for 2 years ( but not divorced )

We have our marital home in Brisbane ( Wakerley 4154 ) sitting empty for sale since Feb 1 . We had one offer for 710 K and all other offers under 700 K .

My ex refused the offer for 710 K insisting that it is worth 725 + K and more like 745 K .

No more offers coming in .

She is offering to drop the price if I give her 60/40 split or if I change from current real estate to purple bricks who offer less commission which I don’t agree to either .

In the mean while we are both paying $1200 each per month on a dead mortgage and other associated costs Eg rates .

How do I force a sale for market price just to get closure ?

A member of our sports club was cooking a BBQ as a volunteer. The BBQ began to catch fire as someone had removed the original fat catcher and replaced it with a smaller object. Fearing there would be injuries to children in close proximity 2 members decided to try and remove the source of the fire (the fat catcher). In doing so one member was seriously burnt. Now the club and insurance company are refusing to compensate saying they are not liable as they made the wrong decision. Is this correct?

I own a small rural property on the outskirts of a small rural community. The house is the former railway masters cottage for the now defunct railway line. The railway line has been recently transformed into a walking trail. A councilor from the local council contacted me yesterday & said that the council has approved plans for a former railway station to be moved immediately adjacent to my house literally meters away as a tourist attraction. Can I stop them?

Hi. My husband and I have agreed to separate after a ten year marriage. For the past five years I have been a business partner for our painting business. Admittedly he put in most of the hard yards and is definitely the boss !! Since I have been his business partner I have not earned a wage yet now he is basically saying I am entitled to nothing financial when I leave. I don't want to take him to cleaners but surely this can't be right ?
