Workings of the Property Law Act Webinar

Workings of the Property Law Act Webinar
Add to CPD Planner


It is more than nine years since the Property Law Act received assent, with all property lawyers being affected by this legislation. The presenters will update you on developments in selected cases since their 2012 NZLS CLE seminar on The Workings of the Property Law Act – four years on.
The focus will be on the key themes emerging from case law, and the practical implications flowing from these developments.
This webinar will include discussion on recent developments relating to:

  • Property contracts: negotiation, creation and interpretation
  • Creation of leases, lease covenants, dealings and enforcement
  • Developments in documenting and enforcing mortgages
  • Recent judicial decisions on easements, covenants and boundary disputes.

This webinar is based on the successful NZLS CLE Auckland In Short seminar Workings of the Property Law Act, held in March 2017.

After this webinar you will:

  • Have a greater awareness of key provisions in the PLA 2007 relating to leases and mortgages.
