LodgeX Legal is your solution to staying in control of your summer property settlements & transactions

The emergence of both NSW and Victoria from their restrictive lockdowns last month, coupled with the recent shift away from the COVID zero strategy has enabled many practitioners to start holiday dreaming.

This year has seen increased levels of stress and burnout in the legal property industry. Lockdowns and working from home have both extended hours and blurred the line between office and home life. We have spent more time at home, yet struggle to feel like we've ever left work. 

As we prepare to book that trip and commit to those plans there is a small hiccup on the horizon. What are we going to do with our property matters?

Booming property market

Recent property settlement numbers have seen a sharp decline for both NSW and Victoria due no doubt to the extended lockdowns in each state. Unlike last year, vendors have chosen to hold back listing their property during the lockdown hoping to capitalize on a hot property market when the lockdowns end. 

Emerging from lockdown, this has quickly translated to a sharp uptick in property sale listings. Already there has been a surge in listings for NSW, with Victoria quickly following suit. The effect of this: the spring selling market has shifted back two months. The workflow is set to increase dramatically and impact settlement numbers over the Christmas and holiday period, January, and even well in to 2022 – just when many practitioners are looking to book that long awaited holiday.  

What to do – holiday or work – or both?

After the year that has been 2021, no one wants to have to make the difficult choice between a holiday and work. There is no doubt that cashflow has been impacted by lockdowns so extra work is a bonus to restore the balance, however, we have all earned that holiday this year more than ever. Just when it seems that we can’t have both, perhaps we can.
