Testimonials – Body Corporate Legal Services
‘As the state manager, I need to ensure that our bodies corporate are receiving the best available legal advice. I am always willing to recommend Hynes Legal to any of our bodies corporate, and do so frequently. I take comfort in knowing they will do the job right and understand the intricacies of various situations and legislations applicable to our clients.’
Hugh Beutel, State Manager for Cambridge Management Services
'Our Body Corporate engaged the services of Hynes Legal five years ago. In that time, Hynes Legal, have undertaken work on a Caretaking Dispute and a Facility Sharing Agreement for us. Both of these matters reached a conclusion that our Body Corporate was very happy with. Hynes Legal also does our ongoing Body Corporate work which includes any motions required for our General Meetings. We have found Hynes Legal very efficient and their dealings with us were conducted in a totally professional manner. We have recently engaged this company for another major project.'
Lynne Dobbs, Chairperson of the Body Corporate for Brighton on Broadwater-Dune
'When we are acting in any management rights or strata matter (whether in Queensland, but especially in New South Wales) we are happy to see Hynes Legal acting for the other party. They are professional, courteous and responsive. They look after their client’s interests like we do and I know that both of our firms are happy to refer clients and matters where we might have a conflict of interest to the other. This is because we both know the clients we cannot act for will be looked after properly by the other firm.'
Col Myers, Partner, Small Myers Hughes Lawyers
'I am the secretary of a body corporate that has engaged Hynes Legal for advice on legal issues in relation to management rights and what the committee considered to be unfair and uncommercial management rights agreements. The opportunity to address these issues came about through the appointment of a receiver, and the desire of the receiver to be able to sell the management rights.
Whilst not without its difficulties, I believe that the advice from Hynes Legal on both a strategic and legal level has ended up producing an outcome for our scheme that is far more palatable to that which we would otherwise have had. Our building needs management rights – but just not in the form that we had thrust upon us.
I can recommend Hynes Legal to any body corporate with similar issues.'
John Hyde, Secretary Noosa Blue Body Corporate
