"Beckhaus Legal provided assistance to me in late 2015 when I purchased my first investment property from Defence Housing Authority.
The team were highly professional, helpful at all times and responsive to my questions. Further the professional fees were very reasonable for the services provided.
I intend to go to Beckhaus Legal for any conveyancing services I need in the future and I highly recommend others to contact Kristen and the team."
