Greg Stilianou Greg Stilianou Principal, Greg Stilianou Legal

Greg Stilianou was a senior lawyer for the Registrar-General at Land and Property Information for over ten years.

There isn’t a land dealing or plan that Greg hasn’t encountered, and since 2019, Greg has established his own practice, Greg Stilianou Legal, where he focusses on delivering his insights into the requirements for achieving registration in the land Register to private clients and, on a consultancy basis, to other legal practitioners, conveyancers and surveyors. Greg facilitates transactions by providing:

  • Special counsel on land titling due diligence.
  • Strategic advice about the documents that are necessary to give effect to a land transaction or a particular objective in the land Register.
  • Quality legal drafting of land transaction documentation.
  • Legal and practical insights on documents that are proposed to be lodged for registration.
