Residential Conveyancing

Overview
Expert residential conveyancing services for Auckland and New Zealand property transactions

Whether it’s your first home or your 15th investment property, buying a house or apartment is a process where accuracy, due diligence and timeliness really matter. Things can and do go wrong when you choose a conveyancing lawyer on price rather than track record.

Hesketh Henry has been a significant player in New Zealand property law since 1865, when Auckland was a frontier town and not long prior Queen Street was a muddy river valley. Our property conveyancing reputation has been built on a tailored service that looks after the best interests of each client.  As conveyancing solicitors for Auckland and New Zealand property, we have become something of a family heirloom – one generation recommends us to the next, based on a high level of trust.

In addition to the usual title, LIM and builder’s report checking, our expertise extends to advising on how the new Unitary Plan for Auckland could affect a property in the future. We also have a close association with reputable valuers and specialised resource management barristers.
