The real estate lawyers and registered legal executives at Rainey Collins specialise in assisting clients with buying and selling property (conveyancing), both for personal residence and investment.  If possible we recommend assisting in the early stages of a transaction and can review Agreements for Sale and Purchase before selling or buying a property.  We can advise in relation to conditions to include in an offer and talk you through the conveyancing process. Our clients are based in the Wellington region and throughout NZ.

We offer 20 Minute Free Property Consultations for first home buyers or others who have questions about the sale and purchase process as well as Free First Home Buyers Seminars.  Please contact Lindsey Smith or Laurie Pallett to book a 20 Minute Free Property Consultation.

We also advise Bodies Corporate regarding compliance with the Unit Titles Act 2010 and issues that arise living in unit titled complexes.

We are also experienced in all types of property law including property disputes and rights of way law.
