The conventional wisdom is that land transactions are straightforward - that is unfortunately far from the truth. We aim to ensure all clients are protected from the many and various pitfalls and complexities which relate to property including Resource Management Act, Building Act and Unit Titles Act issues to name but a few.

We have extensive experience in all facets of property transactions and finance including multi-storied apartment blocks with specialist requirements, commercial property, leasing of shops and offices and of course, house sales and purchases. We can also assist in the planning and financing of a development of whatever size and have access to many property financiers and private funds through our Nominee Company which is run strictly to Law Society guidelines.
