Property Law


At Stevens Orchard Lawyers we deal with all types of property law, from sale and purchase of residential and commercial properties to rural transactions and subdivisions. We understand that, for many people, purchasing property is one of the biggest financial decisions they will make. Each property transaction is unique, and we make sure that no box is left unchecked or left to chance – property law is something we specialise in.

  • Sales
  • Purchases
  • Subdivisions
  • Leasing
  • Financing
  • Overseas Investment Act
  • Rural transactions

Stevens Orchard lawyers have offices in both Nelson and Westport, with property law experts in both locations.

We can provide comprehensive advice about the implications of the Overseas Investment Act. We make applications for overseas investors and purchasers on a regular basis.

We are experts in the negotiation and preparation of Leases, including lease renewals. We also oversee rent reviews and lease variations, along with all aspects of financing and refinancing. This frequently includes securities and guarantees, subdivision, resource consent issues and property disputes. We advise our customers to have adequate insurance for any property they purchase, to safeguard their investment.

These can be complex, and can involve boundary disputes, landlocked land, property sharing matters and many other issues. Our property law experts have dealt with it all and work closely with Land Information NZ where appropriate to resolve issues. We are confident in the service we offer in resolving property disputes.
