Robust due diligence is crucial in order to achieve the best outcome for your commercial or residential acquisition. Our specialist commercial and property team specialises in advising large and small commercial and property investors and buyers.
We review and advise on property titles; lease agreements; licenses and consents; property encumbrances and covenants; zoning and land use; financial reports; tax implications (though not tax advice); regulatory compliance; intellectual property; and employment considerations amongst other things. This entails a meticulous examination of legal, financial, and operational aspects of your proposed transaction. Adept due diligence not only mitigates risks but also enhances informed decision-making for all stakeholders involved.
Our commercial and property team are on top of the latest legal and case law developments in this space, including but not limited to rights and obligations under the following laws and their associated regulations:
- Resource Management Act 1991
- Land Transfer Act 2017
- Companies Act 1993
- Fair Trading Act 1986
- Contract and Commercial Law Act 2017
- Financial Reporting Act 2013
- Property Law Act 2007
- Intellectual Property Act 2014
Where applicable, our familiarity with local government plans, regulations and bylaws is also an essential part of the advice we provide.
We work through all steps of the buying process to uncover potential risks, and challenges and advise you in relation to your commercial and lifestyle objectives before you commit.
