Bay of Plenty’s population has skyrocketed in the past five years, second only to Northland as the fastest growing area of New Zealand according to 2018 census results.  

Given the population growth, real estate in Tauranga is a hot topic, but how do you ensure you’re making the right decision when buying or selling property?

Real estate is one of the biggest investments of your lifetime and the process can be overwhelming, so it’s important to remain in control.

The team at Lyon O’Neale Arnold are experts in property law and can take you through the process well before entering into any agreements with real estate agents or potential buyers, including the legal documentation required, your financial commitments and limitations, as well as any other associated costs.

Your lawyer will give you independent advice, including explaining the potential pitfalls and traps of buying and selling, and protect your interests.

Sometimes there are other legal matters associated with property arrangements, including making a will, preparing an enduring power of attorney, or setting up a trust. We can also advise on relationship property matters as often real estate agreements are entered into with another party such as a partner, business partner or family member.

If you are thinking of buying or selling your home or investment property and want to find out more, Lyon O’Neale Arnold is hosting a free ‘Buying and Selling Real Estate’ seminar as part of the Library Law Series at Tauranga Library on Wednesday 6 November from 5.30pm, and Papamoa Library on Wednesday 13 November from 5.45pm.
