My partner and I are going to buy our first ppor together, after reading TerryW's tips extensively we decided to do one title (me) and the home loan will be joint ( I can't service the 800k loan by myself.) We need to find a lawyer to draft a financial agreement for us before we make the purchase. We also need the lawyer to do conveyancing and wills for us. Down the track we will need spousal loan agreement so I can lend him money to finance IP purchase under his name. ( thanks to TerryW again for this golden tip.) Further down the track we want to set up a trust for future kids but that's for a much later discussion, our current situation doesn't justify this cost. So my question is, can anyone please recommend a good lawyer in melbourne that can handle our needs now and future? I've done some research and identified the following firms roselawyers, pearsons and berry family law, does anyone have good experience with them? Another thing is my partner wants to use Slater and Gordon to represent him for the Financial agreement, I'm a bit concerned as S&G is in financial trouble with a possible class action coming, does it matter at all? Many thanks for reading this!
