As all practitioners will know, the law does not stand still. The purpose of this seminar is to ensure that participants are aware of those key decisions that have recently emanated from the senior courts. In order to provide this update we have reviewed published judgments from January 2022 until present. We have sought to cover recent authority relevant to those in the property law field and, separately, focusing on the key contract of concern to practitioners at a day-to-day level, namely the REINZ/ADLS agreement for sale and purchase standard form, ubiquitously relied upon as the form of agreement for residential property transactions in New Zealand. In addition, we have covered recent authority regarding a high-profile land transaction gone wrong which saw development in the law of torts and in particular, the assessment of damages where negligence is made out by professional advisers in the context of a property or business transaction.

While there are potentially hundreds of judgments to choose from, in order to make this update manageable, we have identified six key judgments that property specialists would benefit from some awareness of. These cases are examined in the following pages.
