The Land Transfer Act is at the heart of conveyancing law and practice, a field in which many lawyers – both specialist and generalist – work. This book is a rapid-response, practical guide to the important changes to New Zealand property law coming in with the new Land Transfer Act.

The Land Transfer Act also deals with a range of more complex issues, such as mortgages, easements, covenants, and subdivisions. It is essential that practitioners have a strong understanding of Land Transfer legislation.

A Practical Guide to the Land Transfer Act is the first text on the Act, which marks a big and important change to the land transfer system in New Zealand, and will include a precis of the legislation, as well as commentary on key issues. As such, it will be a first port of call for practitioners and students wanting to understand the legislation, and grapple with its principles, contents, and wording.

It is an essential text for lawyers, legal executives, LINZ officers, and for students and academics.



• Compact and concise reference text making complex issues accessible
• First book to address the key issues of the new Act
• Practical guidance for practitioners and students
