Our role is to prepare the legal instruments which are registered on the title. These include:
- Easements (for the location of drains, driveways, electricity etc);
- Consents notices required by the council; and
- Land covenants (which place restrictions on an owner’s use of the property).
If your property is subject to a mortgage, we contact your bank and obtain your bank’s consent to the subdivision as your bank’s consent is required before any changes are made to your existing title.
If any of your neighbours need to sign documentation due to an easement over your property being in your neighbour’s favour, our role is to prepare the instrument and the requisite forms and provide them to your neighbours or their solicitor for signing.
Once all of the documentation is signed, the solicitor’s role is to submit the documentation to Land Information New Zealand for new titles to issue.
