Residential property

Buying your first home, selling up and buying a new family home, or looking at property investment in New Zealand are popular options for owner-occupiers and investors alike. 

Buying and selling residential property doesn’t need to be difficult. Even if it’s your first time buying a house, getting the right advice before you sign any agreement is the key.

Before you sign any contract for the purchase or sale of property, it’s important to consider the type of ownership that best suits your situation, and whether a family trust could be of benefit to you. You will also need to finalise payment arrangements such as refinancing or taking out a mortgage.

The property transaction process can also be a good opportunity to check and update wills, relationship agreements and powers of attorney
