“Failing to plan is planning to fail”
“We recently sold our house at Hope Island in southeast Qld, and, after receiving a recommendation for Robert Duncan to handle the legal issues and transfers around this sale process, we engaged Robert as our solicitor to handle the transactions and the conveyance.
Due to issues that the purchasers had the sale process and settlement dragged out for an inordinately long period and was not without drama at the later stage around settlement, and we were impressed with the professionalism and efficiency with which Robert handled these issues on our behalf.
We consider that Robert was instrumental in ensuring resolution of these issues, and in securing the ultimate finalisation of settlement by the Purchasers of our property, and did so on a transparent and extremely reasonable cost basis.
We would sincerely recommend Robert Duncan as an approachable and affordable legal representative, and wish him every success in the upcoming establishment of his own legal practice.”

“My mother recently died and I was grateful that her will was in place. As I was named executor, I called Robert Duncan to help through the process of distributing her assets. That prompted me to get my own affairs in order. Robert also helped me prepare my own will. He was very thorough in his questioning to make sure I put everything in place exactly the way I wanted it.
I would recommend Robert to anybody seeking to tidy up their estate planning.”
“I own an Indian Restaurant on the Gold Coast and work long hours. I had a contract to purchase a property close to my restaurant and needed a solicitor. I was recommended by a friend to use Duncan Solicitors I called them and asked for a quote. I was happy with the price and asked if they would help me do my purchase. I told my real estate agent to send them the contract. It was a great decision I made. I dealt with Robert from start to finish and never had to visit his office once. He came to my restaurant with the documents and explained everything to me. I signed the documents and Robert took care of every detail. He called me the moment settlement took place to tell me the property was now mine. I was so impressed I recommended a friend back in India to call Robert to enquire about getting an Australian visa.”

“On the recent sale of my property on the Gold Coast, I was unable to be there for settlement. However Robert Duncan of Duncan Solicitors, who are conveniently located in Cavill Avenue, provided me with the most professional of services, thereby relieving me of extra pressures associated with a property sale.”

“A big thanks for the hard work put in by Robert on several transactions acting on our behalf. Robert has doubled as our eyes and ears from afar with advice/information about the Sunshine State when we have been uncertain of rules or the law. I consider Robert as a mate for the tireless effort he has put in when all seemed to go wrong. Without him several life changing decisions would not have got over the line.
His Service summed up as:
- No unreachable promises or expectations. No BS basically.
- Quality Service.
- Around the clock availability.
- No stone unturned. Thanks to his hard work and numerous phone calls.
- Ask for the Cardakaris (high maintenance) deal as it has become known with all the trimmings and you will be looked after.

Robert Duncan was engaged to arrange for a property transfer interstate and due to issues associated in locating the original property title documentation and resolving rate arrears this transfer took much longer than expected to complete. Through out the process Robert diligently followed up the parties involved, kept us informed on developments via phone, text, email and readily available to discuss, including after normal business hours.
We would recommend the services of Robert Duncan Solicitors for all your property conveyancing.
