Conveyancing is more than a straight forward buy-sell property transaction.  Consider the multiple parties involved.  There’s the seller and buyer’s lending institution (bank), insurers, Kiwisaver funds, real estate agents, local councils and authorities, tenants, body corporates, mortgage brokers and not to mentioned the most important parties, the property buyer and the seller.

Each of these parties involved during the property conveyancing process ( sale or purchase)  will all have their own role, responsibility and requirements during the sale and purchase transaction.

The Role of the Property and Conveyancing Lawyer

During the conveyancing transaction, it is the conveyancing lawyer’s role to ensure that each party’s concerns are addressed before the property transaction is completed.

        Shared Homeownership Scheme: What It Means For First Home Buyers

        You might have seen the recent announcement by BNZ about their new shared homeownership scheme. So, what exactly is it and what does it mean for people who are keen to take their first step onto the property ladder? As an Auckland lawfirm specialising in property law and conveyancing, here’s our take:

        BNZ Shared Homeownership Scheme – The Details

        The BNZ shared home ownership scheme is not dissimilar to homebuying schemes which have been run in the UK and Ireland with success for a number of years.

        In summary, a first-time buyer teams up with an equity investor to co-purchase a house. The buyer invests what they can afford, with the co-investor (in this case YouOwn) investing the remainder to bring the total equity to 20%.

        The buyer then services the loan on their share of the property, as well as paying an “interest” charge to their co-investor, with the eventual aim to buy them out and own 100% of the house.

        Shared Homes Scheme – The Benefits

        • It allows you to get a foothold on the property ladder – you put up a deposit that you can afford (minimum 5%).
        • You can start to increase the % ownership you have in the property after 5 years, with no set timeframe to achieve full ownership of the house.

        Shared Ownership – Things to Consider

        • This scheme is aimed at buyers with a household income of minimum $120,000 given the price of the eligible homes.
        • It only applies to certain Auckland new-build homes at the present time.
        • As well as your mortgage repayments you pay a separate charge on the equity investment by YouOwn.
        • You’re responsible for all ownership costs such as insurance, rates and maintenance of the house.
        • You won’t be able to sell your house without agreement from the equity co-investor, although you may be able to rent it out if your circumstances change.

        As Auckland lawyers, we consider the BNZ co-ownership scheme to be an interesting new way to get on the housing ladder for first-time buyers. However, it always pays to do your research and to consider all legal aspects to ensure that it’s the right choice for you.

        Here at Quay Law, as property lawyers and conveyancers we’d be happy to help you discover if the shared homeownership scheme is right for your circumstances. If you’re looking for a lawfirm in Auckland to help with selling, purchasing or financing a home, get in touch with Quay Law today.

        Some common forms of property ownership in New Zealand are included below.

        This represents a form of freehold ownership and in essence represents absolute ownership of the property.  Still have questions?  Please connect with our conveyancing lawyers for a no obligation discussion.
        This is a form of property tenure where one party buys the right to occupy land or a building for a given length of time. Until the end of the lease period the leaseholder has the right to remain in occupation as an assured tenant paying an agreed rent to the owner.  If you still have questions, don’t hesitate to be in touch with our Auckland conveyancing lawyers.
        This is a hybrid form of multi-unit tenure in which each owner has an undivided share of the underlying freehold as tenants in common, and is granted a registered leasehold estate of the particular unit or flat occupied. Effectively the property owners share ownership of the land and each owner leases their building from the other owners, which together form the cross lease title.  If you still have questions, don’t hesitate to be in touch with our conveyancing lawyers.
        Under the Unit Titles Act 1972 the deposit of a unit plan has the effect of creating in each unit (usually multi-unit dwellings, shops, offices or industrial premises) a new kind of statutory estate called a stratum estate in freehold, or a stratum estate in leasehold, depending on whether the land which was subdivided into units was freehold or leasehold. Still have unanswered questions?  For a no obligation discussion, call a conveyancing lawyer.
