Healthcare Property

Leading law firm in the healthcare sector, with a deep understanding of property and development transactions in the healthcare space.

Property and development in the healthcare sector is core practice at Burke & Associates Lawyers.

Whether you are an owner or occupier, a property developer or operator in the healthcare space (including medical practitioners, chiropractors, physiotherapists, dieticians, naturopaths, exercise physiologists, podiatrists, and practice managers), we have the industry expertise to provide complete solutions.

Healthcare real estate includes the ownership and infrastructure supporting the healthcare system, which comprises medical clinics, allied health practices, multi-disciplinary practices, pharmacies, veterinary clinics, day surgeries, consulting suites, and more.

Our team assists property developers in all stages of the development of healthcare property from land acquisition, undertaking planning due diligence for the use, development and construction of a purpose-built medical facility, developing the land and subdivision, leasing prior to or post-completion of the project, and all ancillary matters.

We assist professional and practice clients at all stages, from sales to acquisitions of property, developing existing or new premises into a practice to owner-occupied, lease or licence, structuring advice, and more. Our focus is on supporting and building strong long term trusted advisory relationships which our clients find ultimately more beneficial and rewarding than one-off transactional engagements.

We understand that you are time-poor. We know that your business or profession is demanding. So we tailor our legal services accordingly. Our advice is timely clear, succinct, and in comprehensive terms. In instructing us, you have the peace of mind that professional fees are agreed at the outset, so there are no surprises. Our firm is structured so that we manage legal projects and services with our clients in a way that delivers efficient, innovative, and effective outcomes.
