Property Law

Member Property Law Section New Zealand Law Society

Webb Farry’s Property Law team prides itself on providing solutions for clients.

Partners David Ehlers, Megan Bartlett and Warren Moffat head the knowledgeable team, which includes a significant number of our experienced solicitors and legal executives.

Our Property Law team is extensive, with broad capacity, and its practice covers the range of property and construction law, including all aspects of commercial leasing, joint venture projects, major subdivisions, financing projects and contracts. We are experienced in the preparation of agreements, leases, easements, covenants and other required documentation.

Our recommendation is to make contact early in the purchasing or development process. Advice at this point can save you significant cost and also ensure any borrowings are structured as effectively as possible.

For first home buyers, we are aware that the process can be overwhelming.  Our First Home Buyers Guide (/files/1503266393_First Home Buyers Guide.pdf) aims to explain some of the details and suggest things you may want to consider.  Our Property team is available to assist you through this process and help ensure that buying your first home is the positive and exciting experience it should be.
