Live Webinar: 2019 NSW Property Law Update with Tony Cahill


Date:  Wednesday 27th March 2019 – Online: 
NSW: 10am to 12noon 

Our annual update for NSW property lawyers features two sessions delivered by well known Sydney property law identity, Tony Cahill.

(1) Practice and Procedure in Property: Key Developments and Recent Updates

2018 was a big year for property law and 2019 is set to be even bigger. This session will give you an overview of the key reforms over the last twelve months, including the following:

  • 2018 edition of the contract for the sale of land – understanding the key changes

  • Crown land management reforms

  • Changes to the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979

  • Swimming pools reforms

  • Application of the Low Rise Medium Density Housing Code

  • Regulation update including the Greiner Inquiry

  • E-conveyancing – countdown to full implementation

  • LPI post privatisation – what has it meant in practice?

(2) The New GST Withholding Regime: Key Issues in Practice

We’ve now been grappling with the new GST withholding regime for long enough to know where the challenges lie post implementation. This practical session moves beyond the basics and instead focuses on the trickier aspects of the regime that have arisen in practice. It includes:

  • Scope and operation of the new GST withholding provision – what does it mean in practice for practitioners?

  • Special conditions to include in your contracts

  • E-conveyancing and ATO payments – how do the two work in practice?

  • How should developers be documenting margin scheme calculations?

  • Protections available to practitioners when things go wrong

  • Case studies focusing on practical application problems

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
