Property

Property transactions can be fast paced, so it’s critical that you receive the right advice at the right time.

Whether you’re a first home buyer or a seasoned property developer, our property specialists are here to offer indispensable advice and support throughout the whole process.

Our focus is on pre-empting issues from our experience and then problem solving if required. Whether you need assistance navigating the small print in an easement registered on your title, applying for a Kāinga Ora home start grant, or completing a boundary adjustment on your property, we are here to simplify the process and get the best outcome for you.

  • Buying and selling residential property

    We are well versed in the sale and purchase process. We work closely with your real estate agent to ensure the sale process is smooth for you. If you are looking to buy, we are involved from the moment you spot your dream home to the moment you get to pick up your keys.

  • First home purchases, including KiwiSaver withdrawals and first home grants

    This is an exciting time, but can be a daunting process. We're here to simplify the process and walk you through every step of the way. This includes things such as talking to your broker, applying for your KiwiSaver withdrawal and advising in relation to the Kainga Ora first home grant.

  • Residential build contracts

    We have the skills to make a lengthy residential build contract more manageable by setting out the primary issues for you at the beginning of the process. We work to ensure that your contract results in your dream home when built.

  • Subdivisions, developments and boundary adjustments

    When subdividing your property or undertaking a new land development, you will work with a range of professionals. We manage those professionals and regulating bodies to make the process as efficient as possible.

  • Banking, financing and refinancing

    There are many reasons why you might be refinancing or working with a bank and we are equipped to advise and facilitate these transactions.

  • Property insurance and EQC claims

    Even though the earthquakes in Christchurch and Kaikōura were some time ago, you may still be dealing with EQC or your insurer. We have dealt with numerous situations so our experiences can be used by you to resolve your insurance issues.

  • Residential tenancy

    Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, we consistently advise on residential tenancy matters.

  • Occupation right agreements for retirement villages

    If you are making the move into a retirement village, then we will work with you and your family to ensure a smooth transition. This process could include moving into an independent villa, or an assisted care apartment, whichever option is best suited to your needs.
