If you need a lawyer for property sales, leases, subdivisions or any other aspect of owning or developing residential or commercial property in New Zealand, you can expect courteous, expert and cost-efficient service from Hesketh Henry.
Our track record with property law in New Zealand extends for more than 150 years and some of our current institutional clients have been using our services for over a century. We work with a wide range of property owners throughout the country, from first-time home buyers through to retirement village operators, apartment developers, commercial office investors and large non-government entities, such as church and iwi organisations.
Our sizeable property team includes a significant number of senior lawyers as well as more junior lawyers, who can provide cost effective documentation. We work in an open-plan office environment because it supports collaboration and knowledge sharing. In property transactions, it’s important to pull together to cost effectively achieve the best outcome for every client. Backing up everything we do is a sophisticated data storage system that allows us to securely share files with clients and the regulatory authorities we deal with.
Where property law overlaps with other areas of law, such as estate planning and disputes, we integrate closely with other Hesketh Henry teams. Our clients appreciate this ‘one stop shop’ experience because it saves time, reduces stress and helps to keep legal expenses under control.
