Franchise Legal Services – Franchisor and Franchisee Legal Solutions
Franchising can be a great way to start or grow a business, but it’s important to ensure that all legal requirements are met. At Mr Conveyancer, we provide expert legal solutions for both franchisors and franchisees. Our experienced team can guide you through the entire process, from reviewing franchise agreements to advising on disputes and litigation.
Services for the Franchisor (Seller)
As a franchisor, you need to ensure that your franchise’s agreements, disclosure, and leases are all legally sound. We can help you analyse your property, sales, and business growth from a legal perspective, giving you realistic guidance on contracts, lease transfers, or court cases. Our team will also keep reviewing your franchise’s agreements, disclosure, and leases to ensure compliance with the Franchising Code of Conduct.
Services for the Franchisee (Buyer)
As a franchisee, you need to ensure that you are getting the best possible deal. We can review franchise agreements to look for commercial benefits, unfair terms, business structure, and more. We will diligently advise and guide you in case of unfair treatments and litigations.
Code of Conduct
Both franchisors and franchisees are bound by the Franchising Code of Conduct, which sets out how each party must act towards the other. The Code includes matters such as disclosure requirements, good faith obligations, dispute resolution mechanisms, cooling-off periods, and procedures for ending a franchise agreement. Our team can ensure that you are in compliance with the Code and that all necessary procedures are in place for ending a franchise agreement.
In addition to the Franchising Code of Conduct, franchisors and franchisees may also be legally obligated to comply with other pieces of legislation, including the Fair Work Act, the Australian Securities and Investments Act, Australia’s tax laws, and state and territory licensing schemes. Our team can ensure that you are in compliance with all relevant legislation, giving you peace of mind.

- We arrange pre-settlement inspections of the premises.
- We create an open communication channel between either party.
At Mr Conveyancer, we are dedicated to providing timely and professional attention to detail for the best property transaction outcome. We understand that franchising can be complex, which is why we have a ‘can do’ attitude and are here to help you every step of the way.
