The Overseas Investment Amendment Act comes into force on 22 October 2018, and brings significant changes for conveyancers. The regime restricts certain overseas people from  buying or building a home here, but opportunities are available for overseas people to buy residential land and increase New Zealand’s housing stock. There are different rules for Australians and Singaporeans, and understanding residency status will be important. While the onus for determining eligibility rests with the purchaser, in practice purchasers will be encouraged to seek the support of their conveyancer to determine this. Every purchaser will be required to complete a Residential Land Statement confirming their eligibility to buy. The conveyancer must retain a record of this statement for at least seven years or face fines of up to $20,000.
