Buying or selling property in New Zealand involves increasingly complex legal issues. It is not simply a case of helping a client change the title. Changes to ownership eligibility, bright-line tax tests, loan to equity ratios, loan to value ratios, tenancy law, Kiwisaver withdrawal rules, Unit Titles Act law, relationship property law, trust law and so forth have made conveyancing a more difficult task than before.
Seamless property transactions that address all the relevant issues require a high level of skill, time, and patience. For secure and time sensitive conveyancing, you will need a highly qualified and experienced conveyancer. Without a professional who knows New Zealand’s property laws inside out (and often trust law, commercial law, and relationship property law too), property transactions can become time-consuming and stressful.
We are highly experienced, practical, and easy to deal with. We undertake market surveys to ensure our prices are competitive. At the end of each transaction, we survey our clients to see how satisfied they were with our service; commonly, our clients rate us 10/10. At Carlile Dowling, our experienced team of Napier-based conveyancers will navigate you safely and securely through the relevant contractual terms, the property, commercial and trust laws, and all the paperwork in a timely manner to minimise your stress.
