Your house - your castle
Residential Property Lawyers
At Pier Law, we provide comprehensive residential conveyancing services through the collective experience and expertise of our lawyers, legal executives, and support staff.
The growing value of property, and the increasing complexity of property law in New Zealand means there is no such thing as an easy property transaction. Buying or selling a house involves the investment of a lot of your hard earned money, and to minimise the risks involved, you need a good property lawyer with considerable experience in contract law.
At Pier Law, we work hard to ensure your residential and property transactions are as smooth, and as risk-free as possible. We strongly recommend that before you enter into any property contract that you speak to us first. This could result in a substantial cost saving.
Benefits of Our Residential Property Law Team
Larger law firms will often divide different aspects of your requirements across many lawyers or teams making it difficult to keep track of the big picture. Our residential property law team is on the one hand small enough to gain an in-depth understanding of your needs, while also being large enough to provide and apply the specialist legal skills required across all the areas you may need.
We place great importance on spending time getting to know our clients to ensure we can give the right legal advice for your current situation and future plans. We believe a transparent and trusting relationship is the key to success.
