Hesketh Henry has been providing specialised property law services to large church, charity, iwi and non-government organisations (NGOs) for decades. Examples include our relationship with the Anglican and Methodist churches, which have significant property holdings in New Zealand, extends back for more than 100 years and Auckland Kindergarten Association, a charitable trust formed in 1908, which currently operates over 100 early education centres throughout the greater Auckland area.
We’re familiar with all the property strategies employed by the NGO sector, which range from driving assets hard to produce ongoing income-generation to selling property assets to fund specific projects. Our NGO lawyers also understand the people dynamics that exist within charities and not-for-profit groups, which involve both emotional and rational points of view.
The law services we provide to the NGO/charity sector range include property acquisitions and disposal, sub-dividing, property finance, commercial leasing and residential leasing. We also have experience with unusual and challenging issues that stem from how property was acquired in the early days of New Zealand.
If your non-government entity requires legal advice or services related to property ownership, talk to Hesketh Henry’s NGO law team. Our expertise and experience will maximise the benefit of your property and assist in better decision making.
