Management Rights


Management Rights Australia


Management rights has grown to be one of Queensland’s most important and progressive industries, and has over recent years rapidly spread to remaining states of Australia.

With unmatched accessibility and commitment to client care, Pevy Lawyers can rightly boast to be well placed to assist in all types of management rights matters.

As you would expect in such a niche and ever changing industry, there can be no substitute for recent experience. Pevy Lawyers arguably acts for more new entrants to the management rights industry than any other law practice, and in the last financial year alone settled well over 200 complexes – that’s almost one management rights business sale or purchase every working day. This industry leading volume ensures every chance we have seen it before, as well as allowing us to implement strategies for addressing issues that we know work in the field.

Be it buying or selling, or looking to improve your existing management rights business, we have the understanding and industry awareness to ensure you receive efficient, accurate and value adding solutions. With the experience of having acted on over 1500 separate management rights transactions (including some of the biggest and most complicated buildings in the sector), you can be assured you are receiving comprehensive and proactive advice.

Put simply, if it concerns the management rights industry, we can help. Our specialist management rights legal services include:-   

  • Acting in all aspects of the sale and purchase of existing or off the plan permanent, holiday, corporate let and student accommodation management rights, Australia wide (including one of only a handful of law firms with strong experience in jurisdictions outside of Queensland);

professionals as to its views on both existing and proposed new legislation and government department policy.

Pevy Lawyers does not just act for the management rights industry. It’s part of it.
