Terms of Engagement

Below are our standard terms of engagement and information for clients in PDF format.

 

We advise prospective clients to read these before obtaining legal services. These are required by the New Zealand Law Society and Outline our obligations to clients.

ANTI-MONEY LAUNDERING REQUIREMENTS (AML/CFT)

As of 1st July 2018, Anti-Money Laundering legislation requires all New Zealand Solicitors to obtain and maintain data to confirm the identity of their clients prior to acting for them in conveyancing transactions. If we have not acted for you previously, we will need to obtain a form of photo identification and proof of address from you as well as verifying the source of funds used towards a property purchase. Additional background checks may be required for any companies or trusts, or clients based outside of New Zealand.

 

For further information, please refer to the guide from the New Zealand Law Society.
