Rural Property

Hawke’s Bay has a thriving agricultural industry. The laws developed to handle issues within the rural sector are varied and complex. Rural property law covers buying, selling, financing and operating farms, vineyards, orchards, forestry and lifestyle properties. Every property has unique features and considerations which must be accounted for in any legal transaction.

Rural property, especially large properties running farming or agricultural businesses, are high value transactions. You need specialised and experienced rural lawyers to ensure all contingencies are covered in an agreement before you sign it. Our team has been facilitating the sale and purchase of rural property in Hawke’s Bay for generations.
