Financial Services

At Davis Lawyers, our focus is on providing legal assistance to non-bank money lenders, primarily for mortgage backed lending. We specialise in documenting loan facilities and debt recovery regardless of the loan size or location of the security property. We act for mortgage and caveat lenders in all Australian States and Territories, whose loan books range from $500,000 to over $250 million, including public companies. We combine broad industry expertise with extensive practical experience.

Davis Lawyers was one of the first legal firms in Queensland to become a member of the PEXA system, which facilitates on-line conveyancing and money lending settlements.  We are therefore at the forefront of the industry, which adds significantly to our ability to settle all manner of property transactions very quickly.  We are also linked to the PPSR, for searching and registration of personal property security interests.

All our documentation is state of the art and is constantly updated, in light of new legislation and recent case law and industry trends. We are able to prepare documents for loan both covered and not covered by the National Credit Code.

This provides our clients with efficient, professional legal services that we believe are unrivalled. Because we act for a number of significant bridging financiers who lend Australia wide, we are geared up to produce loan, security and ancillary documents quickly. In fact, we can produce a full suite of documents within 4 hours of being instructed. We also formally certify loans immediately once all of our client’s pre-settlement requirements have been met.

We are very familiar with the issues that face lenders of all sizes and hence, Davis Lawyers can assist money lenders in other parts of their business, including capital raisings and compliance. We prepare and advise on prospectuses, financial services guides, authorised representative appointments and AFLS compliance issues, as well as inter-creditor arrangements and investor agreements.
