Family Trusts

1 November - 12.30 - 1.30pm, 5.30 - 6.30pm

Family Trusts can/may be used for a variety of reasons. If you are in business they offer protection from creditors, and an opportunity to split income between family members. They protect the interests of future generations and can avoid estate litigation. Many people want to know about whether they will help with rest home subsidies.

We have worked with Family Trusts for many years and can tell you how they work, why you might want them and what they can achieve. We will also look at how you administer a Trust.

Understanding Relationship Property

8 November - 12.30 - 1.30pm, 5.30 - 6.30pm

Understanding your rights and obligations is important to all people in relationships, whether married or not. The Property (Relationships) Act 1976 provides how ownership of assets is dealt with both during relationships and after they terminate. You should know how this law applies to you and how to contract out of the legislation if you so choose.

This seminar will be presented by a lawyer from Lyon O’Neale Arnold and Barrister, Ewan Eggleston, who specialises in this area of law.

Buying and Selling Real Estate

15 November - 12.30 - 1.30pm, 5.30 - 6.30pm

Real Estate has been a hot topic in the past 18 months. Prices in the Bay of Plenty region have jumped up significantly and there has been plenty of competition for properties.

This session will cover different ways property can be sold, the process of buying and selling and important pre-purchase investigations purchasers should carry out. We will also discuss matters relevant to first home buyers such as KiwiSaver and the Housing New Zealand HomeStart grant.
