Residential property

We can provide expertise across residential property processes including development agreements, new leases and lease renewals.

Buying a house can be complex, sometimes stressful and mistakes can be costly. Bell Gully's residential property team focuses exclusively on residential transactions ensuring that the sale or purchase of your home is our top priority.

Our team is able to draw on the wider resources of New Zealand's largest law firm without compromising the personal nature of our service. We're committed to seeing your transaction completed smoothly and efficiently, keeping you well informed in the process.

Our residential property team has a proven track record in the sale and purchase of:

  • ​freehold properties,
  • leasehold properties,
  • cross leases,
  • unit titles (apartments),
  • refinancing for mortgages,
  • subdivisions,
  • residential tenancies, and
  • general and enduring powers of attorney.

​​F​​​ee structure

Fee levels are dependent on the complexity of the transaction. For example, fees vary depending on whether a family trust or a company vehicle is used, and if strata estate (unit titles) or cross leases are involved.

Land Information Memorandum (LIM reports) are an additional disbursement to our fees.​
