Legal Opinion: Do Real Estate Lawyers in NSW Owe Their Clients a Duty of Care to Advise and Warn in Relation to Climate Risk?


Conveyancers and real estate lawyers play a central role in advising their client on any risks with their planned home or investment asset. Going forward, climate change represents perhaps the single greatest risk to both property values and peace of mind.

We commissioned Norton Rose Fulbright, the pre-eminent environmental law practice in Australia, to consider the duty of care and other factors for NSW legal professionals. Their findings, which are being considered by the Australian Law Commission and NSW Law Society, are available exclusively through Groundsure.
