Settlement timeframes

As the property market begins to bloom it is important to consider how your purchase or sale and the respective settlement periods will play out. A typical settlement period is 42 days. However, leading up to Christmas with office closures and public holidays it is important to ensure that you’re not left without somewhere to stay once your property has settled. If you are thinking of buying or selling, Moustacas & Co Lawyers can ensure that this process runs smoothly so that you can focus on enjoying the Summer. Contact us today on 02 9387 6866.


Can I trade mark my surname?

The short answer is yes. However, there are some important considerations to make when trying to establish if it is possible.

  • Is the surname common or one that other Australians would likely use in trade?

  • Are the goods and/or services attempting to be trade marked specialised/commonplace or somewhere in between? (i.e., submarines or cosmetics).

  • Does the surname have other meanings and associations? (i.e., Green, Wood or Short).

  • Are the goods and services easily produced or readily available? Is the market for the goods and/or services highly regulated or strictly licensed?

Contact Emmanuel Penglis for assistance with understanding the complexities of ensuring that your idea/business or surname is protected.


Wills and Estates

If you own a property, you should have a Will. In the unfortunate circumstance where something happens to you it is important that your loved ones are aware of your wishes. Having an up-to-date Will ensures this occurs. Anthony can assist in both drafting a new Will or updating an existing one.
