    $40 per month. If I owned the building I doubt that would be attractive. Air conditioners (heat pumps) don't last forever so the owner will be saddled with a machine which dies after 5 years.

    LOL so that's a win. :D

    But to be serious for a moment, what you've said Donna is a common comment. Yet lawyers don't create these problems, indeed the very essence of a family lawyer is to...

    You all make valid points and are correct on specific but not necessarily overarching rules of law.

    Glenorchy is a beautiful and remote village at the end of the road. Its main function is a gateway to excellent tramping tracks. Apart from that its mainly holiday homes. Cooler than Queenstown and...

    Agreed Ivan. It's a simple matter to append a Lender's execution to the Loan Agreement for the sake of completeness.

    Personally I like Fern Hill. Very close to the CBD, beautiful views, not much downside. True that Ben Lomond shadows it in winter but that is true of Queenstown itself. Gorge Road is particularly...

    No it is not possible. Every registered proprietor on a title must agree to the encumbrance - in this case the mortgage. She has to have signed loan docs and an A&I to become an owner and a...

    Well said Ivan.

    I've come across new young lawyers who have no concept of the requirement for formal deed documents ie. signed, dated, and correctly witnessed for all parties but mostly its...

    Nothing wrong with Lane Neave but be aware they are a large firm which means they have a lot of overheads to cover.

    My opinion is you are better served by a small firm with a personal touch and...

    Mmm...someone in a bank told you that? I suspect that's not what their lending securities section says. Who supplies the Solicitors Certificate?

    Lets be practical: pittosporums are not trees. Pleasant hardy shrubs certainly, and commonly used for hedges. This sounds like a hedge out of control. They are easily trimmed and recover well.

    With respect, you are misled. There are many, in fact most towns and cities within New Zealand where a young couple can buy a home and prosper. In beautiful surroundings.

    Really? Snub 400,000 New Zealanders?

    The government (taxpayers) has committed $15 billion to help Christchurch. That is no small sum.

    And the proof is in the pudding: the National Party...

    Cromwell.

    Queenstown Lakes property is at Auckland price levels and Wanaka not far behind - residential, commercial, and industrial.

    Pitched roof? I thought one of the signatures of Art Deco was a flat or at least hidden roof. Educate me. :D

    If New Zealand was part of a large land mass with a billion first-world consumers just across the border, I would agree with you.

    However in fact our nation is a group of distant islands 1800km...

    Oops - more TAX:

    forgot the $2 billion per annum the govt were supposed to be investing in the Cullen Fund. We are about $12 billion down on contributions so a big catch up required there.

    Mmm...don't agree Bob. For one thing people hate GST quite irrationally even though they don't understand it. I don't think the electorate would swallow more GST even though some Europeans pay 25%....

    Good point SB. There is no reason at all to believe the current tax law on trading and developing properties will be repealed. Instead CGT will be an additional tax but maybe there will be a CGT...

    Yes Perry, think you are right - death duties instead of a CGT. Similar effect.

    I certainly agree with you that the Labour policy is swamped in misleading half-truths.

    The core political...

    CGT is a tax. It will achieve revenue for the government to spend.

    Why a CGT? Capital increases in wealth (shares, bonds, business goodwill, farms etc) are mostly not taxed in New Zealand. Wages,...

    Well you haven't dealt with ordinary folks. People who put their life savings into a business which doesn't have a profit become bankrupt. Simple and sad. I've looked across the desk at many.
