Rural Issues

The Rural Issues Committee monitors legal issues of relevance to rural practitioners and their clients, focusing on the provision of legal education programs of specific benefit to rural practitioners.

Document to Assist Rural Practitioners

This Document to Assist Rural Practitioners has been updated by the members of the NSW Law Society’s Rural Issues Committee.  The guide provides practical assistance in all areas of rural conveyancing including pre contract enquiries, vendor disclosures and warranties, Crown Lands, water entitlements, Native Vegetation and taxation issues. 


Practitioners acting in transfers for Western Lands Leases should be aware of the fencing requirements of the lease. Non-compliance with boundary fence maintenance requirements by the holder of the lease may effect obtaining the consent to transfer. Further information on this notice.

Rural Issues Conference

Each year the Committee organises the Rural Issues Conference. Featuring an array of presentations from prominent figures, this one-day conference allows practitioners holding NSW Practising Certificates to claim one MCLE unit for each hour of instruction.
