“Adulting”, as one of our clients so cleverly put it, sometimes involves things that are terrifying and exciting in equal measure. Buying your first home is one of those things. Many people have no idea where to even start!  “How do I know if I have enough money? Can I afford the mortgage repayments? What do I do if I want to use my Kiwisaver?” Well-meaning friends and family can give conflicting advice, and it can all end up feeling like a bad headache or a terrible nightmare.

That’s where we come in. We’re an Invercargill based law firm, but available to meet with you in Alexandra or Gore. We could even end up saving you a lot of money! We’re particularly popular with first-home buyers, as we’re committed to cutting down on ‘legalese’ and keeping the process stress-free, enjoyable, and efficient, as it should be. We want those sleepless nights to be a product of excitement, not anxiety! It’s fine to lose sleep from the excitement of picking up your keys, but not because it’s all too stressful!

We work with you every step of the way. From your first phone call with us, until the day you pick up your keys for your new home. We stand out from the crowd because we charge a set fee – no nasty surprises or extra fees for lots of questions. For this one fee, we will work with you, right from the moment you email or phone us, until you collect the keys for your new home. We will complete all your Kiwisaver paperwork and work with you to apply for the Housing New Zealand HomeStart Grant. We will also help you work through satisfying the conditions in the Agreement, and liaise with your bank or mortgage broker, making the process as easy and stress free as possible. If any issues are identified with the property, we will also help you negotiate with the vendor. If you must cancel the Agreement, we apply no charge!! We work on a “no transaction, no fee” basis. Because we know that you will be back! When your purchase is completed, you pay our fee just prior to settlement.

We are the law firm you want on your team when you embark on this exciting journey of purchasing your first home! For more information, give Emma a call today on 03 218 EMMA or download our free app, Easylaw.
